    Squeaky steering wheel

    The steering wheel on my '05 997S has suddenly developed a squeak when turned in both directions.

    It really is distracting and irritating..Smiley

    Anyone had this and, if so, does it mean a long drive to an OPC or is there an easy fix?

    Would be grateful for any advice - many thanks in advance....Smiley

    Bump!... Either I've asked a stupid question which has an obvious solution, or no-one else has had a squeaky steering wheel.

    Which one is it guys...Smiley

    Probably the latter, John, but that still doesn't exclude a simple, if not obvious, solution.

     

    Why don't you try phoning the service manager of your regular dealer, asking if there is a known problem source and an easy fix you can apply yourself?

    If there is, he probably wouldn't want the hassle of filling in the warranty claims for a small, simple job anyway, and will probably tell you what to look for. Smiley

    Re: Squeaky steering wheel

    Strange! - before I rang the OPC, I washed and dried my car and also added some oil, as the level had dropped two below full.

    I then took the car for a short trip to dry the discs and, guess what, the squeak had gone and hasn't reappeared.  It is now perfect again....could there be a connection with washing or adding oil?

    Well, I'd rule out any connection between adding engine oil and the squeak stopping, so it would appear that the wash did the trick. Smiley

    Just a case of the notoriously dry British atmosphere causing steering column parts with relative movement to squeak? Smiley

    It's just the dry humor that makes it laugh.
