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.

Mine sqeeks terrible at inital driving of vehicle, once its been running for a while no more...kind of sounds like rubbing, combined with another whine...it sometimes confuses me with power steering pump whine.
