RE: Steering Wheel Squeak

In a note dated 1/22/97, Kerry Leeds asks;
>My steering wheel/steering column in my 91 200tq is emitting an annoying
squeak >when I turn the wheel. Anybody know if I can just spray something in

If it is the same as earlier Audi's, I have had good luck with Tri-Flo (as a
cyclist and sailer I always have the stuff around) killing this mouse in a
couple different cars. The noise (I think) comes from the horn circuit
contactor from the wheel to the steering column which is a copper on copper
wiper. The "right way" is remove the wheel, disassemble, clean, lubricate,
and reassemble-do you really want to do that on an air-bag car??? Try
Tri-Flo...it worked for me, use a rag underneath to catch the excess and the
smell won't linger too long (and isn't that bad anyway). HTH
