Cheers!

I dove into the steering system and while turning the wheel, there's this squeaking noise from (I think) the bearing. Also, the angle of the rudder to the bearing doesn't seem 100% good. The Lewmar bearing is part 896000140 which according to one product guide is not self-aligning, so this is a problem, right?

Here's a video where you can see what's going on: https://youtube.com/shorts/uVxE-1LquYw

I got some professional feedback that there's likely nothing wrong but the bearings just need to be cleaned/washed. 

Relieving!
