05 steering noise in column

i have a steering noise that is coming from the column in side the cab, sounds like something is rubbing. it only makes the noise when the left side of the wheel is at the 11 o'clock position. it does not make it all the time but its a noise that will drive u crazy. i have read on a bulliten that if i have a steering noise to replace part#5C3Z-3504-AA. what is this part or do i need somting else???

Sounds like the clock spring is making the noise. Does it sound like it is right behind the steering wheel?

You need to take it to Ford and have it looked at. The clock spring is basically two plastic pieces with an electric tape/wires in it. One piece is stationary and the other piece rotates around it. The electric tape/wires is what supplies power to the airbag. This is what it looks like. eBay Motors: AIR BAG CLOCK SPRING FORD 1999-2001 F250 F350 PICKUP (item 350180716635 end time Apr-19-09 00:50:47 PDT)

I think it is really called a slide contact but not 100% sure. Almost everyone knows them as a clock spring.
