Sometimes when I make a sharp left turn, there is a clunking noise in the wheel.
Crack noise when turning.
There is a vibration and clunking feeling when turning the wheel at slow speeds going downhill. The dealer replaced the steering intermediate shaft (said this is a redesign for this vintage of Escalade and the common solution) but that hasn't fixed the problem.
Steering wheel locking and going left and refusing to turn right.
When I go to make left hand turns , only time it makes noises. Have not fixed it as of yet.
