Squeak From Steering Column While Turning on Chrysler 300

A squeak may be heard from the base of the steering column while turning the steering wheel. The noise may be coming from the lower seal on the steering shaft. Lubrication of the seal will commonly correct this problem.

Yea, we pay $50,000 for these tin cans only to listen to the steering groan every time we turn the steering wheel. Had my steering column replaced, then not long after the groan returns. You can bet the dealers will discount these cars when you try to trade them in. And guess what, Chrysler want you to purchase their extender warranty.

I've detected a squeak/rubbing noise when I turn left or right when the car is stopped or moving very slow while turning around or backing up. At this point I haven't lubricated the lower steering column seal.

After about 5000 miles, my 2012 Chrysler 300c began to make a soft, low-pitched "groan" when the steering wheel was turned. This would only happen after the car was warm by either use or sunshine. Problem fixed temporarily by dealer who subricated "both boot shafts" in the steering. ans of now, 3-days later the prblem is beginning to return. Disappointed, but the car is GREAT in every other respect - (so far).

I've had it off and on since shortly after buying the car. They've lubricated/tightened/loosened things on three occasions before ultimately replacing the entire steering column assembly. That seemed to fix it for about 6 months before coming back just after the warranty putrid period (figures). At 42k and steering groans again.
