Squeaky steering wheel

I've noticed a sqeak... almost more of a rubbing noise, when I turn my steering wheel. It went away in the warmer weather, but now that it's cold again, it's back. Any ideas of what it may be? Should I be worried about anything internal?

I never heard of this before, maybe it's the tie rod and check if there is a sign of wear on it. That is where I start first.

I suppose it could be, but the noise is coming from the steering wheel itself... in the cab.

you may want to pull the wheel off and check the bushing that is in there.....it should be lightly lubed...if it is dry...

Yeah, I really need to get a manual first. I don't know how to pull the wheel off and don't want to mess things up by guessing.
