    It seems to be the slip ring that causes the squeak - not any kind of bearing. You will need a new slip ring in all likelihood.

    Cheers!

    On my 03 C5 I had annoying squeek/rattle. Turned out to be the airbag was moving in its mounting and it was replaced (fortunately while the car was still under warranty)

    Take a look at this video on YouTube. Is this the noise you are referring to? If so, it's the slip ring.

    The suggested fix seems to be to fit a new slip ring. I don't think I would attempt this personally because it involves removing the steering wheel (and therefore the airbag) and I would be worried about it igniting. I would get a garage to do it, but I guess there are more daring folks on here who would just do the job themselves.

    Good luck!!
