    Just noticed the other day when I turn I have a squeek squeek squeek coming from my column. The column still fells tight with no movement up down left or right. Is there a way to get in there and lube them, or just deal with it?

    Mine squeaks sometimes too.

    I figure if its squeaking, its good. When it loosens up, then it will stop squeaking and needs to be tightened. :)

    Noticed it only does it once in awhile though, not constant enough to be annoying.

    It sounds like a bearing inside that needs some WD-40, but I'll check that plastic piece.
