Clicking in steering column

Has anyone else noticed a clicking noise coming from the steering column when you turn the wheel? I have a '06 Nismo CC. Actually, I think I can probably feel the clicking more than it is audible and I think it occurs more when I am at an extreme (right or left) and turning back to center. Any ideas? Thanks

The only time I've had a clicking while turning the steering wheel in a vehicle (not my Frontier) is when the turn signal "cams" (I think that's what they're called -- the pieces push the turn signal stalk back the the "off" position) have had a problem. Does the turn signal "cancel" correctly?

You may want to take a peek under the hood and make sure nothing is interfering with the steering linkage to the steering box and take a look at the steering linkages from the steering box to the wheels.

I remember hearing about a small weight or something would come off behind the steering wheel, just file 13 it.

if you are worried about it, you should be under warranty still, take it in.

Is it a popping sound? If so its most likely your steering stops, which are plastic and get damaged easily.

Otherwise the only time i had issues, was when I had crappy tires, it was tough to turn and would make noises sometimes. Also, i had bad power steering lines which caused a WHINING noise when i turned.

Thanks for the replies, guys... . The turn signal works fine and everything is original (tires). So I'll probably just take it in and let the dealership worry about it. I'm approaching 15k.. Its probably nothing, I am just a perfectionist and I want everything to be perfect...
