Tilt wheel broken steering floating


General Motor cars will have this problem if you use the steering wheel as leverage to get in and out of the front seat. They use a ratcheting ball and socket to allow the column to tilt. t is held together with 4 screws, like a box. These screws work loose and allow the wheel to feel like it floats. It is a hard job esp. with an air bag to deal with. The steering column has to be almost removed from the car to fix. Removing the steering wheel and all covers down to the floor board / firewall area. The screws have to be re-tightened and loctite or glued in place. A job better suited for a dealer or local shop who can deal with the air bag. Sorry.

How do I replace the signal switch assembly on my 2004 Chevy Cavalier?


Before servicing any electrical component, the ignition key must be in the OFF or LOCK position and all electrical loads must be OFF , unless instructed otherwise in these procedures. If a tool or equipment could easily come in contact with a live exposed electrical terminal, also disconnect the negative battery cable. Failure to follow these precautions may cause personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column trim covers.
  3. Remove the retaining screws from the multifunction switch.

    Fig. Remove the multifunction switch (2) from the steering column

  4. Remove the multifunction switch from the steering column.
  5. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the multifunction switch.

To install:
  1. Connect the electrical connectors to the multifunction switch.
  2. Install the multifunction switch to the steering column while depressing the spring loaded horn pin.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  3. Install the retaining screws to the multifunction switch and tighten the screws to 36 lb inches (4 Nm).
  4. Install the steering column trim covers.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Ensure that the multifunction switch functions properly.
