I have had a worsening clicking noise and tension in the steering column when turning rt. or left. The steering column was replaced by a Toyota ( very expensive!) and now the problem has started again and it is worse than before. . My husband says to ignore it, but I'm concerned because it feel like something may just snap. Should I be concerned and is there any history of this problem in this vehicle?
