    Hope it works. Esp. in the summer!

    There is also stuff called Carbon grease, or that calcium stuff in the link I posted last year...

    In case the Vaseline works well for you, I will also try that on my E32 750 steering wheel, the slip ring is screeching when temperatures are cold, disappears when cabin is heated to normal temperature. Vaseline I always have in the garage as multi purpose weapon, use it also for example
    for the o-rings of fuel injectors
    as an acceptable alternative to automatic transmission assembly gel
    holding check balls in tranmission valve body
    holding the steel balls in the steering gear when assembling

    SO far it still works well. Still I think it's a bit thick but better than lithium. Has to be something slipperier that can do both the heat and cold. Seems it makes turning the wheel heavy in the cold, I cleaned it back up and just used a tiny dab and still a little thick feeling on turns when under 30 degrees F. If I turn it fast the lock pin will disengage and I have to carefully work it back into position before it breaks my airbag trigger wire. Sometimes tough while on twisty mountain roads.
