United-Kingdom Creaking from steering wheel.....

Hello,

I have a 2004 Mini Cooper s that has a rather loud creaking from the steering wheel.

It happens both turning left and right and happens at all speeds. Eg pulling off the drive 5mph or taking a corner at 15 mph.

I have had the engine mount done last year so don't think to that.

Any ideas what it could be ??

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply!

Is that a job I can do ?? Or does it require taking the steering column apart ??

Is this view from the drivers foot well with the plastic surround taken off the steering wheel? I have the same problem.
Thanks
