My car make steering clunk or click when turn to right or left /but more in right /.
I took to dealer and drove it he said it is intermediate shaft noise or u joint.
He said the solution is to replace it no lubrication can be done.
My question is does intermediate shaft contain within it the u joint I mean when I replace the shaft I already replace the u joint.
My 2nd question is it serious if I don't replace as it cost around 500 dollars where my car is not under warenty

The shaft should have the joint as part of the assembly, not replacing it will cause the uni to start to bind up to a point that it may lock or fail completely and this is not something you want to happen as you may loose all steering.
