Saturn l200 Steering Wheel Squeaks

    Just bought a used 2001 Saturn L200 and it has a squeak in the stearing wheel. It's not cold either, about 75 degrees. The dealer is going to look it over again and see if they can find the problem.

On the intermediate shaft. Steering shaft there is a rubber boot where it goes thru the firewall. This rubs, sometimes can be lubed with a silicone spray, sometimes needs the shaft replaced.

2002 chevy blazer steering wheel squeaks bad while turning


It the "squeaking coming from the steering wheel itself, or from the vehicle when the wheel is being turned? If it is the wheel itself, the only ting you can do to remedy that is to disassemble the steering column to lubricate the insides. If it is the vehicle that squeaks/squeals when the wheel is turned, then it is probably one of three things. From most likely to least likely they are:

1. Worn out/glazed serpentine (drive) belt
2. Defective belt tensioner
3. Defective power steering pump (or low fluid in reservoir).

I want to know if it is dangerous to drive with a squeeky clock spring in my van


Yes its risky. Dont drive with that noise from clock spring.Its indication of its failure.
I believe this is the "clockspring" -- the electrical cable inside the steering column that connects your steering-wheel-mounted electrical controls to the rest of the car. ("Controls" used be just the horn.) The cable wraps around the steering column so it can turn with the steering wheel. Sometimes it starts to rub and squeak.

Squeaky steering column


These squeaks usually are from the steering wheel rubbing the steering column bezel. You can spray some armor all around the back of the steering wheel, this will take care of the noise for some time. Add more as necessary.

Isuzu 3.0 TD 2005 - Steering wheel makes squeking sound when turning steering wheel to both sides. Quiet on strait roads. Sounds like plastic rubbing when turning steering wheel. Sprayed lubricant on...


Disconnect steering column down by brake pedals and turn wheel with steering disconnected.....if squeak is still there its in the upper steering column bearings...squirt silicon spray down the top tube [below the steering wheel] until it runs out thru the tube lower bearing.
P.S dont forget to reconnect the steering!!!

Squeaks loud when turning the wheel mostly to the right. I have checked the power steering fluid, it is at the correct level. Its the kind of squeaking as if it were the tires inside an automotive shop,...


This sounds like the power steering belt is slipping, this will cause a loud squeal, check all the belts and make sure they are good and tight, mostlikly its the power steering belt as the noise only happens when the wheel is turned.

I have a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer LS with strange noise.....


If it is making a noise in the belt area, have them check the water pump. These get loose water pump bearings that cause belt noise.

Suspension and steerin wheel


It is difficult to just assess wut is causing the suspension knock. U will have to go under the vehicle or let someone who is experience about this do it. Go under the vehicle and check the entire suspension system, steering ends, rack ends, ball joionts, rubber bushings etc. Well u said u have changed ur shocks but no difference. As for the squeaks, this might be coiming from the universal joint from the steering column. Like I said they really have to be inspected.
