Tilt steering wheel loose 1989 chev truck


Not a fun job sorry!
1) Remove horn button. 2) Remove steering wheel. 3) Remove turn signal/cruise lever and cancel cam. 4) Remove tilt pins with a pin puller(about $10) 5) Tighten the four loose screws that hold tilt mechanism to the column.
Be happy you do not have airbags.

How to tighten 1989 steering column?


There is a u-joint inside the steering column if you have tilt wheel. Which I don't think that I have ever seen a steering column get loose if there is not tilt wheel. If there is not tilt wheel then there are two bolts that hold the steering column up against the bottom side of the dash. You will just need to tighten these two bolts. If you do have tilt wheel, then it is going to require taking the steering column out and replacing the u-joint in the steering column.

Tilt steering is wobbly (loose); is there a type of u-joint in this that could be going out?


The problem is not a u-joint. The trouble is two torx headed bolts in the steering column. Unfortunatly in order to tighten them up you have to remove the steering wheel, lock plate, and turn signal switch. Once all this is out of the way you can reach down thru the holes in the column and tighten these bolts. This is a common problem with GM vehicles in the 80s. The fix will require a star head socket, along with a steering wheel puller, and lock plate depresser.

I have a 1973 Camaro with the factory tilt steering column and it's starting to get loose. What does it take to fix this? Are there any part breakdown diagrams?


if you can, pull steering wheel, steering lock wheel(spring compressor needed,from auto parts store,free) pull signal switch (three screws) out far enogh to see tilt mechinizm, there are three black bolts to be tightened, if you wiggle the tilt column you should see them loose, a small socket will fit star shaped bolt heads

Wobbly tilt wheel


Remove horn pad . After removing the large nut SCRIBE A LINE ON THE CENTER SHAFT and the STEERING WHEEL, Using a steering wheel puller, remove steering wheel. Now comes the tricky part. Remove signal stalk ( just pull out a couple of inches ),and 4-way flasher knob. Disconnect multiple connector of signal switch. Remove 3 screws holing switch down. Gently pull upward on switch to expose lower steering bowl. The large bolts are LOOSE that secure it, so the reason for the wobble. Tighten bolts, and reverse procedure.

Steering wheel wobbles left,right, up and down,


Does this have a tilt steering wheel?If it does then it sounds like the tilt part is coming apart,need to take the steering wheel of and get to the tilt part and tighten up the bolts/screws,if you have never done this i highly suggest you take it to a professional.The other way to repair this easy is to buy a used steering column that is good and replace the whole unit .

Tilt steering play


you need a new steering column,,,,go to a salvage and get one with a key but there is no fixing the old one,,,a used one should run about 75.00 and is not hard to put in
