The problem has to do with the internal gears, or at least that's what it sounds like to me. My steering column on my 09 murano had the exact same symptoms so I took it to the dealership and they had to replace the internal gears in the steerining column, luckily it was still covered under warranty otherwise who know how much it wouldve cost.Good Luck!
It could just be some small amount of bearing play in the steering column. You could bring it to another shop for a second oppinion or take a look at it yourself. If you choose to do it then ask another person to help. With the steering unlocked and the engine of. Have that person rock the steering wheel back and forth until you can hear that noise. Take a look under the hood and try to locate the source. You may want to put your hand on different parts to feel for the sound. !be careful not to put your hand somewhere where it could get pinched or hurt! Let me know how you made out.
you're best to remove the entire column and do it in the bench, if you can get a diagram it will help a lot, assembilng a steering column is tricky, some parts are spring loaded and others only assemble in in the proper order, you got the steering column out, now you will need a tool to depress the lock plate, remove the c clip and the plate, then remove the signal arm and fourway button, remove the signal switch plate remember how everything came out,you should be able to remove the steerin shafe and get at the four bolts holding the tilt mechanism, four reverse torx bolts, reassemble and install, good luck
first off the center cover needs to be removed from the steerin wheel. some can be pulled off and some have screws on the back side you remove then the cover will come off. once you determine that be careful the covers have control wires that are attached to it that go into the column. gently push in on the connector and turn counter clock wise and the wire will come out with the cover.you can usually rent a steerin whell puller from your local parts store and and use it to remove the steerin wheel after you have removed the nut holdin the steerin wheel on. if you dont have the puller, you can back the nut off to where its flush with the steerin shaft, then turn counter clock wise approximately another quarter turn and take a hammer and strike the nut and this usually breaks the steering wheel lose from the shaft. let me know.
obviously the wires between the steering column are worn and broken .replacement or fix is needed this is notorious with tilt wheel . as you already noticed tilting the wheel causes one issue and or result and another position causes yet another result ......most likely cause resides within the turn signal lever itself ...either remove the bottom cover to the column and find what wire is doing what or i would suggest a replacement part is far more worthy in the end and try to not use the tilt as much it is a notorious to occur on any vehicle . consider either after market or salvage yard .
