SOURCE: Need to replace the 1995 toyota corolla ignition lock cylinder

You need to pull the plastic covers from above and below the steering wheel off. Then put your key in the ignition and turn it to the acc position, then there is a small button either on the top or bottom of the tumbler assembly, it will be inset and you will need a small pointy screwdriver or something to reach it. When you push the button the ignition assembly and the key will come out together

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.

There are 2 adjusters on the steering column, One on the left side that tilts the wheel up to make it easier to get in and out, and one on the bottom to adjust for comfort.

SOURCE: Tilt Steering Wheel lever appears broken - locked

This is a simple mechanical issue (no electronics involved).

Remove the plastic housing from around the steering column and ignition area. It is held with screws from under the column area. There are two screws from the top that you may need a short screwdriver to reach. Some are phillips and some are hex head. Just take your time it will come.

Once open you will see interlocking teeth or "gears" on the top of the column. One in mounted to the column the other engages into the tilt release teeth. This is the tilt mechanism. The top lever is lifted up by the adjusting lever. When the teeth are disengaged the wheel can be moved up and down.

Look to see the linkage is intact from the lever to the top gear. Pull the adjusting lever to see it is working and trying to lift the top gear up.

It can stick. Use WD40 if struck. Try shaking the steering wheel up and down while operating the adjusting lever (right side of column behind the turn signal lever).

Still struck? Use a screwdriver to lift the gears apart. The wheel will tilt easily now. Move to the desired position and engage the gears again. It will now be locked in the position you want.

It sounds complex but it is not. Just take your time and it will be obvious.

Note that while working you should have the negative cable removed from the battery. You do not want to trigger the air bag or damage the electronics. With the negative cable removed you will not have a problem.

There are broken parts in the wheel. It takes special tools to remove the steering wheel. Some auto parts stores will rent or loan the tools if you buy the parts from them.

Headlights on 2001 yukon xl will turn off, then back on, when tilting steering wheel. One time, headlights turned off when clicking off the brights (the steering column again)


The tilt mechanism in your steering column is loose. This is a common problem but not an easy fix, you will need to disable and remove the air bag, remove the steering wheel and all of the parts in the steering couimn down to the base and tighten the screws. Best to Loctite them in so it doesnt happen again.
Do not attemt this if you are not a qualified tech, Goog Luck.
