Mine squeaks too, I use 303 on the plastic and it helps but still does it once in awhile.

It's either the clock spring or the grommet that the steering shaft goes through in the firewall. Happens to me too but I've been too lazy to try to find it.

Mine seems to be right at the steering wheel, not the firewall.

Quit being stingy. Give the mouse some more cheese and he'll quiet down.

Default Fixed my squeak

I had the same issue, first tried spraying silicone in the hole for the airbag removal on side of wheel, this worked for a short time.
Finally got around to removing airbag and steering wheel and greased up between the clockspring and it has been perfect for a month.

Just lube between the black part and white part shown in this picture. I know there may be other squeaks but I believe this is the most common. Good luck

Mine only squeaks once in a blue moon and then only for a couple of turns. I always forget to do anything about it until the next time it squeaks.

My 2010 ZR1 steering wheel squeaked when I got it last March. Was driving me crazy. It took my buddy pushing on the plastic column towards the front of the car to make it go away. I took the column halves apart. Saw no issues so I out it back together and it's been gone for good. Now if I can fix my squeeling brakes. %*^!!!&!!
