    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)

    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!!
