I have a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country base model with just over 70,000 miles.
My steering wheel/column “squeaks” when making left or right turns. The noise sounds like it is coming from inside the cabin, just behind the airbag/horn. It does not sound like a typical power steering problem. The sound is more noticeable when I make left turns and when I am driving slowly, like when I am turning the wheel of the car to get out of a parking space. The noise is definitely worse in colder weather.
I had the inner tie rods replaced three months ago, but I think the creaking sound pre-dates that work. Any thoughts? Are there bearings or joints that might need lubrication. Something else?
