Cha-Ching. That's just me calling it earlier in.

I had the same issue. Over a winter break I went to go for a ride and must have needed to break the pin holding the slip ring. I have no idea why it wouldn't turn, but after it did, I got the squeak.

A new euro three spoke from our favorite leatherman did the trick though.

Default Re: Steering wheel squeak

Good info on this thread. My steering wheel has been squeaking for a longest. And now when i try to turn left it makes a clunk/sticking noise. Takes more effort to turn it left. Thought it was the power steering but the fluid level looked fine.
