Question about 2007 Pontiac G6 GT Convertible
I have a 2007 G6, 3.5L...already had the intermediate shaft greased about 8 months ago for front end noise. No more clunking when turning.
Now I have a squeak in the steering wheel itself only when turning. It only does it when turning at low speeds. Sounds like it is coming from the **** shell looking thing that encases the steering wheel. Or where it comes in the firewall....definitely inside of car.
This started intermittently..now that it's warm, it's almost constant. Sounds like something rubbing...plastic or rubber squeaking sound.
It also does it more when it is wet, after a car wash or rainy days. I sprayed silicon around where it comes into the firewall, by the brake pedal and it seemed to stop for awhile, but now it is back and the spray isn't working.
Had it into the dealer and they said it's nothing and can't duplicate the squeak. My airbag light was also on but went off when I went into dealer...they said that it had an error code from the passenger airbag, not the drivers, and it must of been from setting something on the seat. Which I hadn't. And no passengers at that time either.
I'm ready to go to a different dealer. The 36,000 mile warranty is NOW over, I have extended with a $100 deductible, but it states it doesn't cover AIRBAGS? You'd think airbags would be covered.
I've seen this problem with a lot of cars. Any suggestions?

HI, i would inspect the strut assembly for loose structure asap. i would also inspect the wheel knuckle and rotor and tie rod ends for loose fit as well. inspect thoroughly.
Its most likely the CV-joint assembly. the boot may have slipped off, allowing the joint assembly to dry up. i advise to inspect all the above before looking at the CV-half joint assembly and boot.

warped brake rotor have you had it serviced if so the over tightend your lugs causing your rotors to warp... does it pull when you brake?

If WD-40 got on belt, and squeak went away for a while, it may just need a new belt. The humming noise sounds like a worn wheel bearing that should be checked and replaced if needed. If squeak goes away when you push slightly on brake pedal, it may be rotor on same side as wheel bearing making the noise due to slight shifting of rotor because of worn bearing.You can try swapping tires on front from one side to other to confirm it isn't tire problem as well. If noise shifts to other side, then it's a tire.
