in order to fix this you will need a steering wheel puller and a press I can't remember the name of it but once you get the wheel off you have to press the ring and then get the lock off and then it is pretty simple you can do it with a flat bar and some sockets bot the proper tools are cheap enough that they are always handy

This problem is very common, your best bet is to go to the nearest junk yard and look for a new column. The amount of work needed to try to get into that u joint isn't worth it and matching up the u joint at your local parts store can be a nightmare. Swapping out the column is a twenty minute job. I grabbed a column from a GMC and just swapped the horn button from my chevy, you'd never know it wasn't orginal.

The noise you can hear is the motors still working but the worm nut has broken inside the steering column. The motors still work with the memory system you have but they are not moving the wheel as the worms are still turning but the nut which is attached to the steering column will be floating. Remove covers and check this before you order the new parts as i am informed that a full column is required in order to replace this little part. As it in no way affects the actual steering of the wheels you may be able to repair this without going to major expence. Hope this helps. The same happened with mine but i just wedged the steering in one place and left it. Its been two years now and i can still hear the two motors working every time i put in the ignition key but without the steering wheel adjustment. Ask yourself do you really need it
