    Fantastic. I updated the thread title.

    The mechanic turned the wheel, heard the noise, then pulled the generic floor mat back...it was right up against the steering linkage at the U bolt,
    Nice catch.

    I once looked at my aunt's car: "there's a clicking noise when I press the gas".

    So I got in and sure enough, every time I pressed the gas past a certain point, there was a distinct noise from the linkage.

    So of course I pressed it all the way to the floor as a test. Want to guess what happened?

    This was in the days before we had those little hooks that hold floor mats in place. Fortunately I was on a deserted road while I got it sorted out!
