Anyone else's 2009 Escape have a steering wheel squeak when turning the wheel to the left or right? It's a faint, high pitched squeak that can only be heard with the audio off. If so, has the dealer repaired it?

I've been struggling with the annoying problem since my Escape was new. The dealer said they replaced the steering wheel column and the steering wheel itself. Nothing has helped. I checked TSBs and couldn't find one for the problem.

No steering column, no steering wheel.
High pitch whine while steering is a steering pump issue.Unless...something embarrassingly simple.Belt tension!!!
Spray some WD40 on the belt's friction are with the pulleys and turn your steering wheel.See what happens.
