Intermediate steering shaft......pretty common on these. Usually only noticable at slow speeds. Like parking lot manuvers.

do you ear that sound when your car is stopped? if yes , its probably the intermediate shaft, but while running, it can be the bearing on the top of a front struts, my car is doing this,

when i turn right, at like 10kmh, if i turn too quick i ear a clunk. The dealer told me its that bearing on a struts.

the intermediate shaft will make many little "clunk" when you steer.
