It's surprisingly common for the bolts in the pivot knuckle to come loose. It isn't too bad to repair, but requires special tools to pull the steering wheel and the lock plate behind the steering wheel. It's best left to a professional.

Where is the play coming from? Won't be the steering column,you just notice it there.

I am trying to get my 1985 GMC Vandura 2500 to start, but the steering g wheel is locked and the key won't turn to try and turn it over. What would be a cause of this?


If you vehicle is parked on a slant and the wheels are slightly turned, the pressure from the weight of the car may be forcing you steering wheel to bind. Try tweaking the steering wheel in the same direction that the wheels are turned using your left hand and at the same time try turning the key with your right hand. Tweaking the steering wheel takes the pressure off of the ignition switch. If that doesn't work, try a different key if you have one.

My steering wheel has lots of play up and down , side to side i removed steering wheel i'm stuck on how to get the rest apart to tighten bolts in steering column


you're best to remove the entire column and do it in the bench, if you can get a diagram it will help a lot, assembilng a steering column is tricky, some parts are spring loaded and others only assemble in in the proper order, you got the steering column out, now you will need a tool to depress the lock plate, remove the c clip and the plate, then remove the signal arm and fourway button, remove the signal switch plate remember how everything came out,you should be able to remove the steerin shafe and get at the four bolts holding the tilt mechanism, four reverse torx bolts, reassemble and install, good luck

How do I replace the ignition switch


It's sort of difficult. To do this yourself. FIRST remove the poss lead off your battery. then the steering column has to be taken apart. This requires removing the air bag, steering wheel, and any covers on the column.Lots of screws and lots of weird positions to get into to remove screws.After all this, the ignition switch is in easy access. Replace and re-install all items removed.
