Squeaking steering column

Horn's stud (against column ring plate) has worn out or shaft bearings are worn out. Remove steering wheel and inspect which is it. Make new stud or replace bearings.

Or maybe it's hot weather and column covers bind? - adjust panels further down?

Might be the horn button binding and making the noise when   turning. Wouldn't worry about it unless you get horny.

Replaced the horn contact stud last week...

did you put any grease on it?

 

I made a jumper to go ring to ring, when I installed an e21 wheel and it started squeaking shortly there after.  A little dab of grease fixed it.

Thank you for posting this.  I replaced the stock steering wheel with a Momo wheel a while back, and started hearing this little squeak. I thought it was the wheel rubbing on the trim, so I just lived with it until this post.

Took it apart today and greased the ring and stud a little.  The result is blessed silence.

 

Thanks again.

 

Mike
