Arrow Steering ?

Hi guys and gals,

My steering wheel makes a squeaky noise when I turn either to the left or right, is there a specific place I need to oil to make this stop? Or is there something else that causes this. It drives me crazy!!

Thanks in advance.

Mark

you gotta take the wheel off fella

airbag off, then unbolt steering wheel.

the grease needs to be squished between the moving parts of the outside of the slip ring..

If you don't feel like the slip ring thing, try this first. I know I had a squeak, but its only around slow speeds. It worked for me!


FIXED
