Default Camry steering "groaning" sound

Thanks to whomever posted the suggestion about spraying silicone on the
sleeve surrounding the steering column where it passes through the
firewall/floorboard.
I did this and NO MORE groaning sound when moving the steering wheel at no
or low speeds.

David.

Your welcome. Altho the sound seems
to come from the steering wheel itself
It really does come from that little joint
down by the floor. I spray mine every
few years. Thanks for updating with
your problem solved..

I have a small squeaking sound coming from my steering column.

1) will regular car grease work?
2) does silicone help? I thought silicone will dry up after an hour or 2 of contact?

Thanks.

No not car grease a good silicone spray.
