SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Steering column is becoming loose on 1997 Buick Lesabre.

i dont think their is an adjustment under the sterring wheel. ive had mine apart to do a clockspring. the only nut under the air bag is to hold the steering wheel itself on the column, not to tighten the column itself. try looking under the dash for some studs and nuts holding the whole column itself. that should fix your problem. i dont recommend pulling the airbag and steering wheel for any reason. its very comlpicated under their and all the parts are expensive!

Where is the steering wheel lock located?

If you have the original broken key try putting a mini drop of super glue on broken tip of key ( use a pin or needle to make mini drop) no wider then the width of key excess glue could make key stick in lock, reinstall key if all goes well after 2-3 minutes key will pullout broken piece with it when you remove it . Additionally lock mechanism is in the steering column Not easily accessible .

Loose steering wheel on f250 turbo deisel truck. what would cause this and could it be the bearing?

yeah, more than likely the bearings you should be able to feel the bearings grinding as you turn the wheel. you can buy all the parts and hope you get everything you need or go to a junkyard and buy the whole thing and replace it 5 times faster.

Left turn signal stays on?

I just solved this problem on a friend's car two days ago, however, it was the right turn signal...based on knowing the inner workings of the switch, I'll bet the fix is the same though. If you are not very mechanically inclined, replacing the switch would be the easiest solution. The part was going to cost 100 dollars locally, so I took apart the switch and fixed it. There are three phillips screws on the underside of the steering column. Remove these screws, pull down the wheel tilt lever and pop the plastic shell off from around the steering column. There are two screws that hold the turn signal/headlight switch on, remove these screws and remove the two electrical connectors from the switch assembly. On the front side of the switch assembly are two more phillips screws, remove these and snap the switch open...there are two plastic tabs that keep it together, be careful not to break the assembly or you will be buying the part. After you get it opened up, take out the actual lever that controls the signals, look down in the switch assembly where you see a white plastic block through a small slot in the shape of a quarter circle, most likely there is a black plastic peg snapped off inside there. Use a small pair of needlenose pliers to remove the peg. Look on the signal lever and you should be able to see where the peg snapped off of it. Go down to harbor freight and buy a kit of very small drill bits (four dollars, item number 94606) and a tube of super glue (sku number 42367). Take one of the small drill bits (I think I used the 1mm or the 1.2mm) and drill a hole in the center (underside) of the small snapped off peg (do not go all the way through, go 3/4 of the way through). Take the same bit and drill a hole in the lever where the peg was snapped off, again, go 3/4 of the way in, but not all the way. The plastic this is made out of is pretty hard, so drilling it might take a while...also, the bit is pretty small and may not fit into a drill (I had this problem, and so I just used my fingers to turn the took a while, but it works fine...patience!). Once you have both holes drilled, use a pair of side cutters to cut off the shank of the bit short enough to fit into the hole on the lever and allow the peg to fully seat onto the lever. After you are SURE it is short enough (but not too short, or the peg will just snap back off), use the super glue to glue it all together. Let it sit for ten minutes or so and put it all back together. This works great, costs about 6 bucks (much cheaper than replacing the whole part), and I would assume it is stronger than a brand new switch.

2000 f350 super duty 7.3 drw steering seems to lock up on hard right and left turns. wheel shakes untill i stop and restart. i can sometimes stop the shaking if i quickly turn right and left while driving....

The control valves from the power steering unit lock in position at extreme angles. Either the fluid is dirty - replace it - or the unit is worn out - valves can be replaced separately and the unit refurbished. Or just buy a new unit.

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.
