Its been there for a little while now but thought I would ask on the forum. I have this annoying squeek coming from the steering wheel or upper column. I would imagine that I would have to pull the wheel and do a quick lube spray down the shaft if thats possible. It definately sounds like light rubbing of some sort. Anyone else had this issue?
Pushrodpower..thanks for the pic...thats exactly where I believe its coming from or at least from that spot to the dash.
05imp....thanks for the link..yes I agree that the clockspring could be the culprit or the stupid grommet near the dash.
What is a clockspring..never heard of that before?
I will have to snoop around tomorrow and see if I can get some spray of some kind in there...only thing that drowns out the noise is the radio
Went for a drive this morning and it was quiet for the first 2 min of driving then came back...Im betting its that clock spring. I dont have a steering wheel puller so I think I will just leave it. There is no way I will get any spray in there to lube it without pulling that wheel.
Thanks for all the replies!
Alright...about that squeek or rubbing up near the horn pad...
I took it to my local garage and the mechanic feels that it may be the upper bearing making a noise and thinks there maybe a TSB or Recall on that? Do you think he just does not want to do it? He says check with GM on it.
Does everyone feel its still the clock spring? Or is it possibly the bearing?
Note: In the morning for the first 2 minutes it makes no noise at all.
