Clicking noise when turning steering wheel in 2001 grand cherokee

Hi all,

1st post on site and looking for some help. My 2001 grand Cherokee just recently started making a fairly loud clicking noise when turning to the right and left (all the time) and it happens when driving or sitting stationary. I've been searching the net quite a bit and I've seen it could be the cancel cam (which I'm going to check tonight when I get home), the u joint, or the steering linkage.

Any other thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks,

Dale

Since it happens when stationary, have you had somebody sit in the car turn the wheel while to look under the hood and walk around the car. It might help pinpoint the noise.

Welcome to the garage.
I dont know what kind of clicking noise is produced, but could eventually be a bearing inside the steering column.
