Clicking sound while driving and slight vibration in the steering wheel. The clicking sound is a semi- constant, it occurs on any type of surface.
When I turn the steering wheel (make a tight turn), there's a loud clunking/grinding noise each time.
Had the problem while under warranty. Dealer lubed intermediate steering shaft. Problem developed again after warranty expired. Dealer then reccommended replacing the intermediate steering shaft. Took some convincing but they finally agreed to cover the cost of the replacement. Problem solved to my satisfaction. There is a TSB on this problem.
