2019 Raven LR - Noticed a clicking sound when turning the steering wheel, it appear about 2 months ago when I had the radio off and was operating at low speeds in my garage. Best way I can describe it is as you turn it ever 20-30 degrees there is a fine click like the sound those old children wind up toys made as your turned them.
I've taken it to Tesla Service 3 times now. First time they changed the steering wheel mount, second time they changed the entire steering column, wheel, etc. The sound still persisted and went back this week and for first time the head tech rode in the car with me in the parking lot (they had refused before due to COVID), when he heard it he said it sounded like the suspension. One day later they called and said it was the axle and all they had to do was grease it and clean it and the sound was now gone. Well I have the car back, and the sound is certainly not gone.
Though turning the steering wheel can replicate the sound it seems (though I can't be positive) that when i turn the tires and then just drive really slowly in that set turning radius I can hear the click every so often even when not moving the steering wheel. I haven't been able to replicate this so not sure about this.
Does anyone here have any experience with this? Any ideas? I'm getting super frustrated now, and it's a 40 mile drive each way to the Service Center. Not sure what I should do.
