A squeak heard while turning the steering wheel may indicate that the rubber boot seal on the steering shaft needs some trimming and lubrication.

    Squeak comes from rubber boot where steering column passed through from cabin to engine compartment. Squeak sound come from inside the cabin and only occurs when car is cold any wheel is turned while stopped or moving slowly. Spraying wd-40 on the boot stopped the noise problem for about 6 months. Have to spray again. I might try silicone grease this time. This seems to be a common problem with the Sebring.

    Same problem with rubber boot when cold. This goes away as the cabin heats up. Wd-40 helps for a few months.
