SOURCE: steering column
The three bolts are the most common problem but the two pins that hold the pivot together can come out or the housing wears out causing loosness. you should have seen them when accesing the bolts. they are threaded internally and sometimes you have to stake them in place. good luck

o.k... you broke the key off in the cylinder... right... o.k... can you turn the key? it you can... usually you just put the key in the acc position... and just pulls out... now... some ignitions use a pin to keep the cylinder in... just hope you don't have one... because you'll have to pull off the steering wheel and the turn signal switch... just to get to it... them you'll have to get a small screw driver and remove the pin... not easy... any way... just use a big flat head screw driver... and ever so gently... pry out... when you get a new one... reverse the procedure to install... hope this helps man

I have seen this on many gm cars and trucks.dont remove the column,removal of steering wheel is necessary.if you have air bags this is tricky.there is a clock spring that tells comp. where the wheels are pointed.i dont recommend repair if air bag equipped.take it to a shop.I taped my clock spring and made sure i didnt move it or steering wheel.remove the lock plate and lock ring (tool sold at parts places)
and you will see the problem.dont remember if they are called pins or bushings but I used some type of epoxy after pushing these parts back in.columns vary somewhat but if you get past the lock plate and wiggle you will see the problem.hope this helps

SOURCE: wobbly tilt wheel
Remove horn pad . After removing the large nut SCRIBE A LINE ON THE CENTER SHAFT and the STEERING WHEEL, Using a steering wheel puller, remove steering wheel. Now comes the tricky part. Remove signal stalk ( just pull out a couple of inches ),and 4-way flasher knob. Disconnect multiple connector of signal switch. Remove 3 screws holing switch down. Gently pull upward on switch to expose lower steering bowl. The large bolts are LOOSE that secure it, so the reason for the wobble. Tighten bolts, and reverse procedure.

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.
