Hmm. There isn't really a structural crossmember on these as such that could really cause that. There's an engine cradle...which also has the front lower suspension arms and steering gear attached to it...perhaps that's what the tech was referring to.

They just called and said it was ready. They tighted "front" engine cradle and "rear" engine cradle.

Also said "re torqued" the wheels. Does that mean (to you) lugnuts? Or something actually something related to where the wheels mount?

Unfortunately, no difference at all. Same click is felt.

They did at least straighten the steering wheel and do a front end alignment.
Not sure why the intermediate shaft was never mention. I plan on calling back and letting them know it is still there and ask about the possibility of it being the intermediate shaft.

It took two attempts for mine to get sorted too. I'm still impressed that my dealer was willing to replace the intermediate steering shaft even though the TSB didn't apply to my '14.

Good luck and feel free to tell your dealer about my experience.

Re: "Click" felt through steering wheel (brakes?)

jrein:

An update. Not surprisingly, tightening the engine cradle did nothing. I knew when I heard them say "yeah, he head the noise"... nothing would be corrected. There is nothing to hear. You just feel it through the wheel.

So, I ended up just having them add in the notes that I had been told it could be the intermediate shaft.

Saturday I decided to experiment with the telescoping steering wheel feature. I had never moved it. You can feel a thick wire in there--I think it must be for the airbag. I had wondered if that thing was bumping against something, as it is kind of crammed in that space. I pulled the wheel out maybe an inch. So it is now not as far towards the engine as it can go. Would you believe I stopped feeling the clicks immediately? Drove it a couple of times Saturday and Sunday. Did not feel anything.

But then this morning, starting feeling it some again. Frustrating.

Just to make sure again we are on the same page: you were feeling something, not hearing it, correct? And you could feel it during a braking cycle, or even without braking? How about when you came to a complete stop...right before I am completely stopped, as the car rocks back a bit, I usually feel it through the wheel then also.
