SOURCE: 1999 F350 crew cab 4x4 ford, gear shift lever

Ok ready to stand on your head under the dash?
It's doable... there is a flange connected to the gearshift lever under the steering column. If you remove the lower dash cover where the fuses are, you should be able to see it when you move the gear shift lever... look around on the floor of the truck to see if you dropped a star-headed bolt or two... these bolts worked loose on my superduty and made shifting very difficult..it was an easy fix... let me know how you do on it.

SOURCE: parking brake won't release but hand lever moves

Either the spring is stretched out or the e-brake connections on rear drums are stuck. It is common. EIther you have to use or ebrake all the time, or not at all

SOURCE: steering wheel moves side to side and up and down, there is also a groaning sound when turning corners

It sounds like the steering column bearings are loose or worn out, a full tear-down and inspection is required before any parts are replaced, it may be easier to just buy a good used steering column.

How do i tilt the 2007 chevrolet aveo lt steering wheel for my own comfort


Steering Wheel Adjustment .The lever is located under the steering column, slightly to the left. To adjust the steering wheel: 1. Pull the lever down. 2. Move the steering wheel up or down into a comfortable position. 3. Pull the lever up to lock the wheel in place. Do not adjust the tilt lever while driving.

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.

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.

Extremely Loose steering column. Not just a little wiggle room, wheel moves up, down farther than normal tilt and left, right so far wheel touches wiper/lights/signal arms.


I believe your steering wheel is coming off take vehicle to dealership asap and don't drive. A screw or something fell out

My tilt steering wheel lever broke on my 2003 Oldsmobile Alero?


If you can't get a used one from a breaker (not sure what you call them in the USA, in the UK they are breakers or scrap yards), could you cut a piece of thin (2 or 3 mm?) plastic or metal and epoxy/screw it to the broken pieces on the side you can't see?

1987cadallic deville steeringwheel


Hi,

Usually, vehicles with tilt adjust steering, have a small lever just under the steering wheel column. Pulling this lever out, unlocks the wheel. Pushing lever back in, locks the wheel.

Have a look for a lever of this type and once you find it, have your Dad hold the steering wheel at his preferred position, then push the locking lever back up, to lock the wheel in place.

Let me know if you resolve this.....


Cheers,

2001 grand caravan steering wheel tilt no longer locks in place. Wheel moves up and down freely. Is this an electrical problem (say a failed solenoid) or mechanical? What is involved in fixing it?


Actually this is most likely a mechanical issue if you had to move a lever to adjust it. If it is one of those that is supposed to adjust at the push of a button to saved settings then it is a solenoid. I doubt you have this in the caravan though. You will need to open up the steering column so you can access the locking lever and gears that the teeth of that lever lock into. Most likely either the teeth or or the bracket they lock into have become damaged or loose causing your problems.

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

Play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment


When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps
