Question about 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
Hello all! I have a 1989 Grand Wagoneer (the bid guy with the "wood" on the sides. I love this monster. Ive had it for 8 years. Recently the steering wheel started to "fall" toward my lap as I drove, and I noticed alot of play. The steering wheel seems to be almost broken now, and really really loose, in all directions. The "X" the "Y" planes of the wheel move freely,and its pretty hard to drive. Actually I dont drive it at all now due to this, I love this thing and want to fix it.
There are no cracks on the plastic housing around the gear shift lever, or the ignition key. I talked with one mechanic and they thought that there were some hex screws under the steering wheel that needed to be replaced, and then the steering column needed to be realigned? Make any sense? Thanks in advance for your help

It sounds like all you need to do is as follows, remove the steering wheel and behind it inside the column you will find a couple of screws or bolts that hold the tilt steering assembly together, they have most likely come loose and just need to be retightened , I would recomend that when you have the bolts out that before you reinstall them you put on some kind of thread locker (ie) lock tite. this should solve the problem
