    Squeaking steering column

    I know I posted this in the technical area but thought id try my luck here. After 4 months of fun motoring my steering column has developed an annoying squeak when turning either left or right. (sri 2002 2.2) I have tried WD40 sprayed in the gap but thats done nothing. Just wondering if anyone else has had the problem and if so a solution.
    Cheers in advance.

    I have the same problem but am going to ask my mate at vaux how to resolve it.

    Will keep you posted.

    Does it only squeak when you have the indicators turned on?

    Another steering related question, when standing still how low are your volts meant to drop wehn truning the wheels left and right?
