Are you sure its in the wheel or could it be ball joints? If it is the wheel, then lay under the column and turn the wheel to see if you can pin point the squeak. Maybe its a u-joint in the steering linkage.

Hey thanks for the quick reply. Ya i am positive it isnt the ball joints i know it is in the steering column but i dont know what the squeek does acutally sound like rubber and plastic rubbing really lightly but maybe it is a u joint in the column i guess i am not sure where should i start. Thanks

I have a squeak in my steering wheel also. Probably for about a year now. Its not that loud and most time of the I never pay attention to it. I will be watching this thread to see if anyone has a easy solution for it.

It is the clockspring causing your problem. It is what makes the airbag work. It is actually a contact that has two pieces of plastic that turn inside one another. Here is a link to show you what it is. You can replace it but I've seen brand new ones have the same problem. Hope this helps. Ford Clock Spring - Free Shipping
