If you're going to a salvage yard, I would ask about just the wheel. However some places want to sell the whole column. Basically depends on you and your schedule. Hope this helps.

1995 Buick Riviera ignition locks up and I can't get it unlocked for up to an hour of trying to move the steering wheel back & forth like the book says. Does this mean I need a new ignition switch? Someone...

Probably not the actual switch. The switch is located at the base of the steering column. The key cylinder can wear and not function properly, which also controls the release of the steering wheel.

Where's the fuel filter located on a 1992 Buick Riviera ?

On some GM Buick's the fuel filter is actually located on the suspension inside the right front wheel...I asked a parts counter person about fuel filter location once...and their remark was "quality control was so poor back could be anywhere"? Needless to say I was through with that guy:) wrong answer...Hope this helps.

The horn on my 1995 buick leasbre is stuck i change the horn under the the hood on both sides and it still is stuck any idea

The contact point is in the steering wheel. You may need to remove airbag by disconnecting battery and removing the screws on backside of the steering wheel then a wire. The horn will be underneath the airbag. The horn contact will be a plastic insulator and a spring. Check here to see for broken parts. Good luck.

Broken steering wheel on 1995 buick riviera

I am assuming that you have a broken tilt bracket in your steering column. I just changed one Last Friday. You will need a few special tools (steering wheel puller, steering shaft spring compressor and a pivot pin removal tool. You can rent some of these. You will also need a 1/4" drive ratchet with extension and female torx bits. Look up on line or buy a book to take you through the process. Remember to disconnect the battery and wait for 10 minutes before beginning. This will keep the air bag from giving you a 200 mile per hour surprise. I bought a set of dealer manuals for 35.00 on Ebay last week to guide me. It will take you about 3 hours at least. This narrative should help you to decide if this is something you want to do at least.
