Hey folks, I posted about 2 weeks ago about some "clicking" under my gas pedal when I turn left and right. No clicking when driving straight. I took advice and filled the shaft boot with grease, no help. I also greased the joints along the shaft and still no help. I went to the dealership and they are being d*cks and say nothing is wrong and it's normal. Anything else I can do? My jeep is a 2010 wrangler sport 4dr 68,000 miles (a lot I know) 6 speed.
It's not something you can hear riding, just feel honestly. It's more annoyance than anything. Dealership won't even just take 5 seconds to look for me, they want $100 to look for an hour. Aka 5 minutes.
Look under the dash and make sure the steering column is mounted tight to the body where it goes thru the firewall. With the engine idling see if you can make the feeling happen by cycling the steering back and forth.

I can make the click with the car not even
being on just sitting in the drive way and also when I am driving in neutral I can turn the wheel left and right and it will make the click that only I can feel under the pedal. It only happens when the jeep is warmed up after driving for 10 min or more.
I have checked the bindings and everything seems to be ok. No play. When I have opened the hood and I get someone to basically jiggle the steering wheel back a forth quickly, the faster you move the wheel left and right you can hear a little
Noise when the hood is popped. Sounds like two things rubbing together but can't hear when sitting in car. And no I did not slide the boot down. We had a grease gun and tried to slip it in the boot but accidentally poked a small hole. We pumped with grease until full and squished it around. No grease comes out unless squeezed.
Nope. Unfortunately I don't feel comfortable enough to do that. I would have to take it home so I could be with my dad just in case. But I just drove again after a couple hours the grease being in the boot... First 10 mins.. Great! Last 10 min.. Horrific.
Thanks for the help. I noticed just now The faster I move the wheel back and forth there becomes a knocking noise but only if you continuously jiggle the steering wheel. This is more of annoyance to me but don't feel like spending hundreds of dollars to fix it, if it is not a safety issue.
Well the feeling is 100% under the gas pedal. Ive gotten multiple people to sit in my drivers seat and they feel it. The noise, pop the hood, sounds like it coming from around the boot on the shaft. But that's only a where about location
