Check that the 4 bolts that hold the column in are tight if they are move the steering wheel up and down whilst looking at the universal joint at the bottom of the column it may be flogged out ( if so you may be able to get a new one) ( the uni can be situated in side the car or out depending on the set up so you may need to get a friend to move the wheel will you crawl under the car and have a look)

if none of the above fix the problem it may be as simple as the bush in the upper section of the column has collapsed if this is the case you can normaly get new ones althoughit is easyer to just get a second hand collum

Need a diagram to put together a 1989 caddilac eldorado power steering,tilt and telescope steering wheel and column.


Excellent tutorial here that helped me when I had a loose steering wheel on my 1988 Deville.

This one is not from an 89 Eldorado, but all GM Tilt/telescoping steering columns from that time are virtually identical:

I have a 1973 Camaro with the factory tilt steering column and it's starting to get loose. What does it take to fix this? Are there any part breakdown diagrams?


if you can, pull steering wheel, steering lock wheel(spring compressor needed,from auto parts store,free) pull signal switch (three screws) out far enogh to see tilt mechinizm, there are three black bolts to be tightened, if you wiggle the tilt column you should see them loose, a small socket will fit star shaped bolt heads

Steering wheel moves up and down too far.


the bolts that secure the tilt joint inside the column have come loose, wish I had a dime for everyone of these I have fixed! you must tear the column apart to fix this problem, it is best if you remove it from the car and put it in a large vise.

Steering column is becoming loose on 1988 Buick Lesabre


There are 3 bolts inside that have backed out, this is a tough job. You have to have special tools to complete this job. You have to pull the pins on the side after disassembling to access the bolts.

your steering column has a plate with 4 inverted torx fasteners I believe they are e8 fasteners, you must remove the upper tilt flange to gain access to these bolts , a few special tools will be needed : Pivot pin puller , steering wheel puller , lockplate depresser to name 3. the job takes about 1.5 hours to complete. hope this helps a little.
