    tilt control lever is frozen in place. Will not move.

    Fixed it! Put a lot of pressure on the bottom of the steering wheel toward you, use your knee. Then pull ******* the tilt knob, again, toward you. It popped back in place, and works OK. Push knob away from you to lock it in. Try it several times to loosen it up a little! (:-)

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.

SOURCE: Electric steering wheel adjustment not working - Reach/Rake

The noise you can hear is the motors still working but the worm nut has broken inside the steering column. The motors still work with the memory system you have but they are not moving the wheel as the worms are still turning but the nut which is attached to the steering column will be floating. Remove covers and check this before you order the new parts as i am informed that a full column is required in order to replace this little part. As it in no way affects the actual steering of the wheels you may be able to repair this without going to major expence. Hope this helps. The same happened with mine but i just wedged the steering in one place and left it. Its been two years now and i can still hear the two motors working every time i put in the ignition key but without the steering wheel adjustment. Ask yourself do you really need it

Tilt steering wheel


if there is a lever under the dash( next to the steering column) that you push down to loosen off the adjustment then that is how you do it. If there is no lever ,there is no way to adjust the steering wheel angle.

How to tighten 1989 steering column?


There is a u-joint inside the steering column if you have tilt wheel. Which I don't think that I have ever seen a steering column get loose if there is not tilt wheel. If there is not tilt wheel then there are two bolts that hold the steering column up against the bottom side of the dash. You will just need to tighten these two bolts. If you do have tilt wheel, then it is going to require taking the steering column out and replacing the u-joint in the steering column.

Steering column is loose at tilt knuckle


General Motor cars will have this problem if you use the steering wheel as leverage to get in and out of the front seat. They use a ratcheting ball and socket to allow the column to tilt. it is held together with 4 screws, like a box. These screws work loose and allow the wheel to feel like it floats. It is a hard job, the steering column has to be almost removed from the car to fix. Removing the steering wheel and all covers down to the floor board / firewall area. The screws that hold the joint together have to be re-tightened and loctite or glued in place. You can find info with pictures here (the instructions are for a Chevy Blazer but the steps are the same) http://www.superchevy.com/tech/sucp_0707_tilt_steering_column/index.html Maybe a job better suited for a dealer or local shop.
