just curious if this has been talked about, but I have found that when I turn the steering wheel there is a slight squeak squeak emiting from between the wheel and the base, where the light stalk is.

I have the squeak as well. All I can say is to take it in to the dealer and get it fixed. Should be covered under warranty. I'm just lazy so I haven't gone in yet.

Sometimes the foam around the steering column comes a little loose and rubs against the column as it turns. It squeaks some and can be kind of irritating. It happened to my old '95 civic and my mom's '06 accord. I'm not saying that's the problem or anything, but it's an easy fix if you take it to the dealer, especially since you're on warranty.

Resurrecting a old post here... The cable reel assembly seems to be a common cause of this type of noise. Just to confirm (if anyone knows) is the squeak just an annoyance or is it the early manifestation of a component failure?

Glad to hear I'm not the only one with this issue.

Same here, sounds like its coming from inside the steering wheel/column somewhere. But it only does it when it's pretty cold outside, like below 60 degrees. Once spring came, it went away so I'm waiting till it gets cold again so I can take it in and duplicate the problem.

Awesome great find! I broke mine when we did my clutch... someone decided to turn the wheel more than they should have while it was not connected to the steering rack.


Anyone replaced this part by themselves?
