I have a John Deere LA130 and when i try to turn the steering wheel it clicks and will not turn my tires. Can you tell me what this might be?

Customer: thanks
JA: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I would like to fix it myself. No i have not tried anything yet.
JA: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hi, My name is Jay

You need to check to see where the steering shaft and the half moon gear meet to see if the shaft bearing or gear are bad. Here is picture break down of parts in steering involved.
