I have a 2009 Nissan Versa. While making a turn, I heard a metallic snapping/clanking noise, which I could feel at my feet as well as in the wheel. I discovered what looks like a metal bracket popping out at the entrance of steering shaft near the brake pedal.
Turning the wheel, it appears to be attached by a bolt and moves when I turn. I'm not sure if I should drive my car to a mechanic or have it towed as I'm unsure what this bracket was holding on to on the inside. Have any ideas what this might be?
