Does it move at all??? If so then the star bolt that goes in the center hole is the brake so to speak.
the lever that turns back and forth on the column has 2 small screws that attach to the lever.
tighten the center bolt until the wheel is secure, then set the tightening lever to the tight position and put the 2 screws in place. they will fit in between the star or teeth on the bolt and attach to the tightening lever.

You can use the tool you will need to some how lock the telescopic steering just enough to be able to use the tool. It will be a little hard but that is about the only way to do it. Take you time and breathe.

Location of fusebox on 1980 corvette


Fuses are located in the junction box below the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. The turn signal flasher and hazard warning flasher also plug into the fuse block. Each fuse receptacle is marked as to the circuit it protects and the correct amperage of the fuse. In line fuses are also used. Refer to the Fuse Chart at the end of the information for their location. The fuse block on some models is a swing-down unit located in the underside of the instrument panel adjacent to the steering column. Access to the fuse block on some models is gained through the glove box opening. The Convenience Center on some models is a swing-down unit located on the underside of the instrument panel. The swing-down feature provides central location and easy access to buzzers, relays and flasher units. All units are serviced by plug-in replacement. Location of Convenience Center on specific models may vary.

Bad key switch, need to know how take steering column apart to replace switch


Remove the steering wheel,which may require a puller.
Mark the wheel in relation to the steering shaft before removing.

Remove the steering shaft locking ring.Held on with a C ring on steering shaft,which may require a tool made to push the lock ring down a little for removal of C ring.

Remove the signal light switch....held in with usually 3 screws and one on the hazard flasher switch.
Just pull it out enough to get access to the single bolt holding the lock/key cylinder into the steering column.

Slide old lock out......and slide new lock/key in.
Reverse the process.

How do i replace the turn signal for a 1980 vet?.. the old one broke off.


Are you saying the lever broke off or the actual swiich is broken inside the steering column? if it is just lever you can buy the lever, it just screws out counter clockwise. If you have cruise control you can buy the lever here.

If it is not the lever you will need to remove the steering wheel and the lock plate under the wheel, this will require special tools, these are a GM locking steering wheel spring compressor and a steering wheel puller, these tools can be purchase at upscale auto parts stores like NAPA and Carquest, they are made by KD Tools.

Where do I add power stearing fluid


The power steering pump on a 1980 corvette is located directly under the alternator. I have found it easiest to reach between the alternator belt and unscrew the cap, then use a long stemmed funnel to fill it. If you shine a flashlight down into the spout, you'l avopid overfilling.
