Click feeling of powe steering wheel
Hi I have hybrid car Camry 2012 with mileage 35000
My problem is the feeling click in my steering wheel especially when turn right and it is
not always present .
It occur when low speed turning to right and while parking turning steering wheel not
causing this click.
I can feel it in steering what is your opinion
I took it to mechanic and said no problem as he drove it but as I told the click not always
Check your CV shaft boot. The boots sometimes split open and sling all the grease out of them. If it has split, you should see grease on the underside of your car. Unless of course you live in the snow belt. You won't be able to see much of anything without a lift. If the boot is split, you will have to replace the shaft. Hopefully your mechanic actually inspected under the car and not just do a drive by and then park it since it wasn't making any noise.
I know this is a year out of date, but I'm having the EXACT same issue. I took it to toyota and they said it was the steering shaft. Did you get this fixed/figured out? Only 25k here, but same make/model.
Be careful. When they say, it's the steering shaft, there's a ton of parts there. Is the upper shaft or the lower? You may be wise to find out and order one for yourself online. They run about $169- $200. Then I would take it to a local shop and have them install it. You will save tons of money. If your order it through Toyota and have the dealer install it, you will be seeing a huge bill.
Thanks, Reelin68. It was the intermediate shaft. Apparently a defective U-joint. We were 6 months out of warranty. Had we driven it more, we might have caught it sooner, but my wife is a low mileage driver. So yeah, it cost us about $600 to fix. Could have been worse...could have probably been better. The issue is resolved though. Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it.
