Yes it can be fixed, but it is a pain in the ****, done dozen's of them, hated every one. You are going to have to pull the steering wheel off and then remove the turn signal cam, under that you will find the screws to remove the upper bowl assembly (u will need to unplug turn signal harness at base of column), remove that, under that u will find the bolts for the tilt that have come loose

Not very likely the whole vehicle would need to be rewired. But you'd pretty much have to strip down the steering column to find everything and to check the tilt apparatus for worn parts. I would check the price of a steering column for your Jeep from a salvage yard and then decide how to go- at full steam ahead. Good luck, Chris.

Sloppy Steering I just purchased a used 91 Jeep Wrangler. The steering is a little sloppy. Is this common? Is there anything to check to verify that it is not due to excessive wear or a loose or broken...

I know a lot of people who have jeeps and operate them off road. Usual problems include loose steering from worn or damaged suspension and/or steering components and a bumpy ride due to blown bushings, shocks, or suspension components as well. Yours may not have endured the same abuse but I'd suggest first checking your tire pressure, tread for even wear on all tires and then I'd have an alignment done (if you have damaged components they will tell you before they can align your vehicle) and that will give you an idea of what is wrong with it

Steering tilt dose not stay tight

if you remove the covers off the column, you will see 2 screws towards the back on the sides of the column, inverted hex head. it is comon for these to work loose and cause the column to become sloppy. remove one at a time and reinstall with locktight medium or blue to hold in place.
