Hi all,

Just had my C2S MY 2006 returned from a service and there is now a squeak coming from the base of the steering column around about where it leaves the driver footwell and passes through into the front compartment. I took it back to the stealership who said not to worry about it but I find it a bit annoying and I can only thing it just needs a bit of grease or lubricant. The noise comes when you turn the wheel in either direction.

Has anyone else had this issue or have any idea for a safe lubricant I can use? I fear that if I book it in to get fixed the stealership will charge me thousands to take apart the whole steering column and apply a 5 EUR tube of grease. Much as I love paying them to stand around smoking while they charge me 140 EUR per hour I would prefer a simpler solution if anyone has one!

Thanks in advance,

Sam

Has the steering wheel been removed anytime recently?

Not that I know of! It was serviced and came back with a scuff mark on the outside of the wheel where someone obviously scuffed/kicked it with their foot getting in or something but I can't see that being the issue, the wheel/column is pretty sturdy.

I was told not to use WD40 on it by the guy in the dealership when I showed him the issue and the scuff mark! I don't want to destroy any rubber seals or anything, not that I know what I am talking about, I just read that somewhere :)

The guy who told you not to use it should also told you

what to use. The best stuff in the world to use

is vaseline. It is a petroleum product that is made when coverting

oil to gasoline. I use this stuff but it requires a rag to wipe off the

excess.
