Click Noise when Turning Steering Wheel on Chrysler Sebring

Sedan and Convertible
A click heard when turning the steering wheel may be solved by aligning the steering column or installing revised steering column parts as necessary. Installing the revised parts will require removal of the steering column from the vehicle.

Driving in a straight line, move steering wheel slightly, left or right, feel click in the steering wheel. Bumps in the rode do not cause it. Seems car has to be driven a few miles before this occurs.
Clicking noise when turning my steering wheel. Asked about it but I was told there was nothing
I just bought a 2007 limited sibring two weeks ago and it had go back for a recall in the shifter, then I picked it up and noticed thud sound in the steering wheel. The sound seems to happen at random times and I don't know how to fix it nor do I feel it's my responsibility... I just bought it so I'm not very happy at this moment with it.
Felt snap in steering wheel then steering felt loose and clicking when wheel turned, like it was hitting something. Replaced clockspring fixed noise.

I just had the ball joints and rocker arm as well as the rack and pinion steering repaired. It wasn't making the noise when I took into the shop. Spend $3,000 getting it repaired, now it is making this noise. They claim it is unrelated and want to charge me to fix it.
We had most of the gaskets replaced because of being dried and shrinking. It stopped the oil leaking. But now we have a clicking noise in the steering wheel when turning into a parking space. Our mechanic says that it is the wire harness inside the column???? It never made a noise before! He says the harness needs to be replaced ???? I beleive that changing the oil pan cover and timing gear cover and what ever other covers were changed should not have anything to do with the steering wheel but like I said it didn't make noise before.
