hey guys i have a 01 1.8t and i just noticed about a week ago when i move the steering wheel my car squeaks. Its not the tires I feel like its coming from under the hood or something. It happens the most, or at least i notice it the most when I am at a stop or at lower speeds. Whats up with my car and how do I go about fixing her?

PS fluid level/strut mounts/bushing maybe....I'd also look at the tie rod assemblies, especially the joint hiding in the rubber boot right up against your steering rack.

Yup green cap, VW wants you to buy their tool..Just stick something in that slit (large Flathead, a couple cd's, stack of old credit cards, a quarter, whatever) and turn, it comes up

Re: squeaky steering wheel (ebensqauat16)

I don't really want to pay someone to check the fluid I I can do that myself. If I see the fluid level is fine then I guess I'll have to take it in unless anyone knows what else it could be. Does anyone think this is a major problem?
