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.

How do I change the switches in the steering wheel on a 2006 GMC 2500HD sierra?


this is something that would be best done by the dealer due to the airbag being in the steering wheel , that being said if you wish to attack this on your own still you have to unplug any power [battery, back up battery, stereo amps stiffening capacitors etc] then there are some small screws on the back of the steering wheel that need to come out before the horn/airbag assembly will come out to allow you to disconnect and replace the steering wheel switches depending on the accessories on your truck you may also need to remove the steering column covers before you can acess the scews in the back of the steeringwheel. be VERY cautious of the airbag connectors and wires but you would still be safer and better off letting a dealer change those out for you.

On the rack and pinion steering gear there is a short shaft that couples with the steering column shaft by a flexible joint. Similar to a u-joint. To check it, get under the truck and push back the rubber protective boot where the steering column comes out of the firewall. Look for the flexible joint and check if it is binding or loose. Someone may need to turn the steering wheel back and forth while you watch it. You may need the front wheels raised to observe its turning action. There is a pinch bolt that secures the joint to the rack and pinion stub shaft, it may have come loose or the joint may be bad.

How to troubleshoot loose steering wheel column on my 97 mercedes e320


It appears by you description that the position lock is not clamping up. position the wheel where you want it and look just under the dash for a lever or knob that will tighten up and hold the column in place.

How do i remove an ignition in a gmc jimmy 2000 without a key?


Hello, Dan. First, disconnect the negative (-)/ground on the battery Dan are you mechanically inclined. If not then don't attempted this job.

You will need to remove all the plastic covers on the steering column. Remove the horn ring.--two screws under the steering wheel. Remove the horn ring and disconnect the horn plug. Remove the steering wheel nut. Use a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel.

Remove the turn signal switch that fit around the upper part of the steering column. Then remove the some of the parts that are associated with the steering wheel and/or column.

Now, look at the ignition switch flange, it a big chunk of aluminum. Now look for a large aluminum dowel pin 5/8" in diameter that is driven into the chuck of aluminum but it is parallel to the steering column.

This aluminum dowel pin will have to be drill out before you can get ignition housing off, If there is adjustable steering column lever, remove this also.

Now, once the dowel pin has been removed, looking for a **** in the ignition housing. Take chisel and insert into this ****, drive the chisel into the **** until the ignition housing is loose to be remove by sliding it up over the steering column.

If you buy a new ignition switch, on purchase the switch with keys. Don't buy the hole new ignition housing.. If you do it will get expensive.

In the ignition (old) housing drive out the ignition switch pins that keeps the ignition switch in the housing. Install the new ignition switch re-insert the ignition switch hold pins.

I am fairly sure that Carquest/ NAPA some other larger auto parts will have ignition housing bolt. If they try to sell you a replacement aluminum dowel pin don't buy it. It is almost impossible to install the aluminum dowel pin without the proper tools, so use a bolt to squeeze ignition housing together.

Before putting everything back together. Now, check the new ignition switch to make sure it works. I wish you lot of luck. GB...stewbison

OK, This may not be a 92 gmc solution but I hope it helps. I had this problem on a non-gmc. The Hi-Lo switch on the sterring column grounds a relay to activate it and cause the switch to hi-beam. With Hi-beams on the steering column switch would loose the ground while turning the sterring wheel. The lights would shift to low-beam and back to hi-beam several times BUT looks as is they were going on and off. I run a new wire from the top of the steering column to a new ground to provide a ground path. The problem was cured.
