Re: What grease to use inside upper steering column?
Thanks for the replies. What's in my original column is pretty thick and a dark reddish color. It really does look like wheel bearing grease, but what I read said the moly in wheel bearing grease will eat the plastic.
Since my OP I've torn into the used replacement enough to swap the ignition key barrel and found the inside is full of dirt and fairly rusty. The original key works but is very stiff. I knew the column was a bit rusty, but didn't realize how much junk was built up inside. I'm going to take it completely apart and clean/grease everything. I may need to swap the turn signal switch as well as the wiper switch because I think part of it broke off when I took it out.
