Steering Column Rubber Boot Noise

Recommended Posts

I have started to notice, in cooler weather, my steering wheel produces a rubbing noise at low speeds. It appears to be this rubber boot at the wall and bottom of the steering column. Anyone had this before? Know a fix? Hate to take the truck in for something like this.

I have this issue also, they tried lubing up the steering column, still didn't fix it, so they are ordering a whole new column, but they are on back order because of this wonderful covid-19 cr@p!

Same issue here, first trip in (for an unrelated service) the dealership couldn't replicate the noise, according to them. It seems to be loudest when the truck is first driven and then less noticeable later on. It has increased lately so I will be taking it back in for them to have a second shot at finding the source of the noise. 


I am sure it is something simple, but I don't think it is unreasonable to expect the steering on a brand new truck to be as quiet as my 19 year old truck. 


Anyone else experience the noise and trace it to the steering boot or something else?

Thankfully mine was fixed, but I also had to wait a while. I also had a tapping feeling in my steering wheel, so they had to replace the whole thing. 


I think I can feel it in the brake pedal when it creaks/rubs, I assumed it has to do with where everything comes through the firewall. Hopefully I won't need an entire new column like yours.
