Steering Wheel Squeaks

Our Expy recently developed a squeak in the steering wheel when turning and I was wondering if there are any grease points that anyone knows about that would solve this. Its not doing the notchy steering or sticking that other people have complained about just a very faint squeal when turning. Other than that just got back from a 2500 mile road trip and everything was great the ride has 42k on it now. Thank god we got a DVD player installed 4 kids would have driven me nuts without it.

Does it squeal when its parked, but the steering is turned? Pop the hood and listen near the power steering pump.

I just went out and fired it up in the garage and I didn't notice anything when parked but its so quiet the wife is the one that noticed it first I might have her listen to it. When I heard it, it sounded to me like something in the column itself needed greased it was very faint more like a metal on metal rubbing noise than anything else. I just hope their isn't a bearing going out I bet that's not cheap.

If it was the pump/belt, you would hear it more when under load, like parked. Not sure what it is. I don't think there are any grease fittings-all sealed joints. Have you crawled under and see if any rubber seals are leaking, etc?
