Did this today, and it solved the issue. I also used it on my squeaky rear door hinges, and a little on a whiny belt. Fixed all of them immediately!

Thanks again for the tip!

Squeaky Steering

I've been hearing more and more squeaking coming from the upper steering column since the days have been getting colder and colder.

Is this a simple problem that I can fix, or is it an indication of something more difficult? I was thinking steering fluid, but I've never heard noise coming from this high up in the column before when fluid was low.

Thanks!
