That's really hard to say not knowing the exact spot where the noise is coming from, could be something simple like a dry a rubber bushing, or more complex like the steering shaft bearings, try to track it down and give us a location.


it might be easy if it is caused by the plastic pieces which shroud the steering column- they might have come loose a little bit and are rubbing up against the back of the steering wheel- just loosen and re-position-


Thank You for the reply. Yes, this might be, I should mention this is not my vehicle, but a good friends. I will suggest this or take a look when I replace the blower resister and blower motor in it.
