Default steering column question


My steering column is making a little noise when I turn the steering
column of my 1999 camry. It only happens when I am stopped. I told my
mechanic that can we oil and lube the steering column. He said we
canot do that with a toyota camry 1999 its sealed.
Is he right?

thank you

Your mechanic is incorrect. There is a ujoint in the steering column just
under the driver side dash, and a rubber bushing on the driver side
floor. The rubber bushing is ususally the culprit (this is a common thing
with camrys). Grab a can of spray silicone and spray between the bushing
and the column as you turn the wheel. Should take care of it.
