Worked! 

 

Odd. Mine makes a totally different noise. More like creaking leather or an old stereo speaker failing... if that makes sense? I tried recording it last week, but all you could hear was the sound of my vest as I cranked the wheel, ha!

I was hoping that we all had the same noise and that it was "normal" for these trucks somehow.  Not that we are getting several noises and steering columns are being replaced!

I’m really beginning to hate this dealership. Truck was supposed to be done yesterday. I never get a call. I contact them and just got a text at 8 from the service manager saying he will know more tomorrow. I asked him a question and he doesn’t respond. I will be calling the service manager tomorrow morning. Almost two weeks and it’s still there. Truck is only two months old. Wtf

That stinks. 

 

But this is also why I won’t take mine in just for a quiet noise to be fixed. I’ve seen this happen too many times... drop the truck off for a few hours and a few weeks goes by. Ugh.

Summary

This Preliminary information communicates a repair procedure for a squeak/squawk type noise coming from the lower column/drivers footwell area when turning.  It explains how to properly lubricate the column shaft boot where the shaft interacts with the boot where it passes through the boot. 

 

 

I don't have access to the pdf for this but it's something to go on if you have "squeaks" or "squawks".

It doesn't really bother me either.  I am just going to bring it up with the dealer, along with a handful of other issues the first time the truck needs to go in.

Me too. Specifically, before I go on a week-long out of town trip so I don’t need my truck all week. Lol
