You would need a book and the necessary tools to remove the steering wheel. There are bolts in the upper column yoke that probably need to be tightened up.
You can look for videos on youtube that talk about replacing the turn signal switch which also requires removing the steering wheel.

in order to fix this you will need a steering wheel puller and a press I can't remember the name of it but once you get the wheel off you have to press the ring and then get the lock off and then it is pretty simple you can do it with a flat bar and some sockets bot the proper tools are cheap enough that they are always handy

SOURCE: steering column very loose need diagram to see

This problem is very common, your best bet is to go to the nearest junk yard and look for a new column. The amount of work needed to try to get into that u joint isn't worth it and matching up the u joint at your local parts store can be a nightmare. Swapping out the column is a twenty minute job. I grabbed a column from a GMC and just swapped the horn button from my chevy, you'd never know it wasn't orginal.

The steering column is loose in my cavalier 2002, is that a easy fix?

well, most steering columns have a bracket that hooks to dash to keep column from moving. most cars have a bracket with 2 bolts to hold it up. but check to see if the intermediate steering shaft that goes through firewall is ok! you should be able to find the problem. good-day!

not a big problem, most vehicles with any age to them the wheel will become loose like that, it does not affect the steering capability, but if it annoys you and you want to fix it you will have to replace the bearins in the steering wheel.

Adjustable steering column wobbles

the tilt steering wheels get loose from people using the wheel to assit them in and out of the vehicle, it is a very common problem and it is from the tilt bolts coming loose inside, if you do not have a lot of mechanical experience i dont recommend doing this your self, there are some special tools required and know how but if you can get your hands on a service mannuel then all you have to do is take the steering column apart from the wheel down to the tilt bolts and put some red lock tite on them and retighten them down

I have a 1981 Corvette with tilt steering wheel. The steering wheel has started flopping like something is loose in the steering column. Whats going on? Thanks Jim

You must remove the steering cowl below the steering wheel and see what is loose, broken or worn. It more likely to be a loose bolt, in which case just tighten it and refit the cowl.
Hope that helps

My steering wheel moves up and down and left and right i dont know how to fix it or figure out whats wrong

If it is the tilt steering wheel, then you have two bolts near the tilt part of it that have backed out. You need some special tools to get to the bolts, but not too hard if you can get the tool to remove the snap ring that holds the plate on. If you don't have tilt, most likely the bearings in the steering column are bad, and you would need a new steering column.

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!

My steering wheel on my van is loose

I think the problem you have is the steering assembly being loose.

To repair this, you must remove the steering wheel and work slowly down the column assembly, removing the indicator switch, ignition switch and other assorted springs and things. Lay out the removed parts in the order and orientation you remove them, take digital pictures or draw sketches at all stages, watch the spring placements. I also unplug the column looms to give you more room by moving the switches away for the area in the column where you are working.

Once you get far enough down the column you will see the three bolts that are loose, hidden in a sub assembly. I have only been able to tighten two of these over the years. This is a common fault.

Rebuild the column using the reverse of the order you removed it.

Good luck
