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.

SOURCE: 2004 Jeep Liberty shaking when breaking at high speed

Some things you can check. 1 jack up one side at a time. Grasp the tire on each side and try to move the tire, if you can move it you have a bad inner tie rod on that side. You can also grasp the tire at the top and bottom and try to move it that way as well, this will tell you if you have bad ball joints. I suspect a bad inner tie rod here as you have replaced everything else. If you check both front tires and nothing is loose your problem lies in your front brake rotors. Hope this gives you some help and thank you for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC

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

There are three bolts under everything that you see. The steering wheel comes off first,then the retainer ring has to come off(it's on the same steem that the wheel is on,there is a tool for that). There is a plate with slots in it that will come off. Pull everything else out carefuly as not to lose any screws or break any wires, and you should see the three screws in a triangle formation. Tightin them & reasemble.

Without taking the tilt mechanism off you can only reach 2 of the 3 bolts. If you use 1/4 in. socket on 1/4 in drive with 6 in extension you can just get at the left bolt. If you remove the tilt spring you can get to the bottom bolt. To remoce tilt spring retainer use standard Phillips.

Tilt lever on steering column is not staying in place, so the steering wheel slowly move up to block my view. I know its a simple fix, but I need some kind of direction on how to remove it probably


I don' t think so.
Not a simple fix.
The tilt lever is down underneath the horn button, which is part of the air bag system which is on top of the steering wheel, which is on top of the tilt lever.
All this is a big job to deal with.
If this were my car, I think I would figure out a way to lock that lever into the locked position.
That would likely take some creativity.
Do you know someone creative?
Fixing it will likely require removing the steering wheel.
God bless your efforts.

1987cadallic deville steeringwheel


Hi,

Usually, vehicles with tilt adjust steering, have a small lever just under the steering wheel column. Pulling this lever out, unlocks the wheel. Pushing lever back in, locks the wheel.

Have a look for a lever of this type and once you find it, have your Dad hold the steering wheel at his preferred position, then push the locking lever back up, to lock the wheel in place.

Let me know if you resolve this.....


Cheers,

Tilt steering wheel loose 1989 chev truck


Not a fun job sorry!
1) Remove horn button. 2) Remove steering wheel. 3) Remove turn signal/cruise lever and cancel cam. 4) Remove tilt pins with a pin puller(about $10) 5) Tighten the four loose screws that hold tilt mechanism to the column.
Be happy you do not have airbags.

The tilt steering wheel on my 1988 Chevrolet P/U 2500 series suddenly became very loose and wabbly inside the cab. It still steers fine, but would like to know if there are bearings or something else that...


You will need a steering wheel puller, a lock plate depressor, and a number 4 or 6 star socket. Pull the steering wheel, then the lock plate. Remove the screw that holds the hazzard light button on, there is a spring in the switch so hold on to it. Pull the turn signal lever out of the switch, some have a screw some just pull out, if you do not see a screw where the lever plugs into the switch then it just pulls out. Remove 3 screws that hold turn signal switch in the steering column, pull up on the switch to get it over the end of the steering shaft, if there is not enough slack in the wire you will need to get undr the dash and unplug the wire so it can move up. You do not need to pull the switch out just get it out of the way. After all that is done you should be able to see two holes on the left and right side of the steering shaft, above center, in the bottom of these holes there are star headed screws that have come loose, tighten these and youe wobble will be gone. Then all you have to do is put er back together.

I just purchased a 2007 jeep liberty sport


I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty and the smae lever that tilts the seat also moves it forward and back. Press forward or back on the switch. Also check for blown fuse or a loose wiring connector under the drivers seat. Good luck, Techjoel

Loose steering wheel, 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer (FSJ)


it sounds like all you need to do is as follows, remove the steering wheel and behind it inside the column you will find a couple of screws or bolts that hold the tilt steering assembly together, they have most likely come loose and just need to be retightened , I would recomend that when you have the bolts out that before you reinstall them you put on some kind of thread locker (ie) lock tite. this should solve the problem
