Hi all

Does anyone know how to remove this please? My steering wheel squeaks, creaks and groans like crazy at anything other than the straight ahead position and so I want to investigate - I'm assuming I need to remove the shroud to do this....
All help gratefully received!

It's in the cabin as opposed to the steering joints ? (near the wheels).

It is - the plastic cylindrical cover that is directly behind the steering wheel. The one that the indicator/wiper stalk comes out of

Ah - I realised you meant the noise not the shroud!! Yes the wheel itself squeaks/creaks as I turn it...

No need to remove --spray grease or work some vaseline in with a toothpick?
