when you remove the column trim, there are a couple bolts on the underside that probably came loose. tighten them back up.

It's not the rag joint. It's not under the hood either.

Read this, in post #10 there's pictures in it that show the two bolts that loosen up under the column cover.

This is getting more common so I'm going to stick that thread.
