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.

Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure.

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.
