Hello I am Jamie and I would like to try to help you with your problem. The drive in a circle will not tell you anything. Just to make sure I fully understand your problem, do you only hear one click each time, or do you hear a click click click?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Hello, its a click click almost like a plastic sound
Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 7 months ago.

There are two things that can cause this problem, the turn signal switch, or one of the bearings in the steering column. I have another customer that had the same thing but hers was when she turned right only. The dealership she took it to found the bearing was the problem. The repair at the dealership was under $300.00.

Can you start the car , turn off the fan and radio and see if you can hear the noise turning right as well? Also can you try holding the turn signal switch down to turn the left turn signals on and then turn the steering wheel left and see if you still hear the clicking?
