Default 2002 Camry - Steering Wheel "creak"

I have a creaking noise in my steering wheel in my 02 Camry. It happens
mostly when I turn the wheel while the car is stopped such as
manuevering out of a parking spot, or backing out of my garage, etc.

A local mechanic said it was probably the horn contacts. Said WD40
would cure. Anyone else experienced this?

Yeah,there is a TSB and we see tons of these every day in the DC area. If
you follow the steering column under the dash it enters the engine
compartment through a rubber boot about 3" in diameter. There's your
creak. Pull the boot away from the column and spray some silicone inside.
Should take care of it.
