    Squeaky Steering Wheel

    Hi Guys,
    My girlfriend has got a 51 plate, 1.6 Astra, she's really pleased with it except the steering wheel squeaks slightly when you turn it, I know it's only a minor thing but it pisses you off after a bit. Does anyone know if this is a common thing and what to do to fix it.

    Ta

    Steve
