I searched for this, but couldn't find anything. My steering wheel is squeaking like crazy whenever I turn the wheel. I am fairly certain it is that little plastic round piece behind the steering wheel. Any help would be appreciated. TIA

Sounds like the copper horn contacts are squeaking on the slip rings of the wheel. Take the wheel off and use some fine sandpaper to carefuly clean the contacts and the rings on the back of the wheel and then lighty grease them with some dialectric greas available from any auto parts store....you can use lithium grease if you like as I'm sure many do.

If it is the contacts make sure you grease them pronto. I had to replace mine once because the contacts got shaven down completely by the steering wheel. Its not cheap either as you have to buy the whole wiring harness that fits into the steering column.
