The Grease DIDN'T Help the Squeaky Wheel

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I've had my steering wheel off a half-dozen times now trying to locate and silence a relentless squeak when turning it. I finally located where I think it's happening. It's the 2 horn electrical contact pins that run across the bottom of the aftermarket hub (Scott Drake) conductor disk. I've now tried using grease and silicon spray to make it stop but it squeaks just as bad.

What would be your next approach?

Ok, the dielectric grease didn't do the trick. Also tried another suggestion to take a very fine sandpaper  and go over the surface at 90% to the grain and that didn't help.


I guess I'll try the NO-OX-ID grease but I'm loosing hope.

Dielectric grease has always worked for me when a horn contact button was squeaking as it rubbed against the contact ring.  I've never tried the NO-OX-ID grease.  Be a little careful with it as I read it is conductive.  You don't need grease causing an electrical short.

You sure your MIL is not hiding in the back seat or trunk, causing that squeaking noise? 

Are you suggesting that he should use dielectric grease on MIL?
