Tilt lever on steering column is not staying in place, so the steering wheel slowly move up to block my view. I know its a simple fix, but I need some kind of direction on how to remove it probably


I don' t think so.
Not a simple fix.
The tilt lever is down underneath the horn button, which is part of the air bag system which is on top of the steering wheel, which is on top of the tilt lever.
All this is a big job to deal with.
If this were my car, I think I would figure out a way to lock that lever into the locked position.
That would likely take some creativity.
Do you know someone creative?
Fixing it will likely require removing the steering wheel.
God bless your efforts.

Tilt wheel stuck I the up postion,How do you fix it


This happens with my ram. The tilt wheel locking pin is stuck. When this happens to me i have to wiggle my steering wheel up and down and pull on the tilt release lever at the same time until the locking pin slides out of it's locked position. I have found that if i do not lock the wheel in the max up or max down position i do not have this problem.

How do i adjust the tilt steering


There should be a small lever, usually on the left of the steering column, under the steering wheel. If you pull or lift on the lever, it allows the steering wheel to be tilted up or down. When you release the lever or push it down, it will lock the steering wheel at that height.
Cheers.

Trailblazer will not start when steering wheel is tilted up. While holding key in start position and tilting the wheel down the engine will start. If left in that position it seems to start OK. If ...


Loose or damaged wiring in the steering colum. I'd suggest having a professional repair done, most likely the steering wheel will have to be removed and there's a chance of setting off the airbag. Dangerous and expensive.

Adjustable steering column wobbles


the tilt steering wheels get loose from people using the wheel to assit them in and out of the vehicle, it is a very common problem and it is from the tilt bolts coming loose inside, if you do not have a lot of mechanical experience i dont recommend doing this your self, there are some special tools required and know how but if you can get your hands on a service mannuel then all you have to do is take the steering column apart from the wheel down to the tilt bolts and put some red lock tite on them and retighten them down

Loose Tilt Steering. Steering wheel moves side-to-side and up and down.


You need to remove the steering wheel all the way down to the directional switch to gain access to tighten up the tilt housing set screws

Tile wheel won't move back down in position


As you move the tilt lever to release the lock pawl from the rack the wheel will move. Yours does not it seems so the rack inside this tilt housing has broken off and has bounded up making the tilt option inoperatble. The steering column will be needed to be torn apart and replace this broken housing with a new one

My steering wheel moves up and down and left and right i dont know how to fix it or figure out whats wrong


If it is the tilt steering wheel, then you have two bolts near the tilt part of it that have backed out. You need some special tools to get to the bolts, but not too hard if you can get the tool to remove the snap ring that holds the plate on. If you don't have tilt, most likely the bearings in the steering column are bad, and you would need a new steering column.

Telescopic Steering wheel won't move down or up


Yes it would be perfectly ok to disegauge the auto switch to keep it from moving again. It needs a tilt motor replaced . not a easy job.
