Loose steering column in 1989 pontiac bonneville, i took off the steering wheel but that's as far as i can go. my email is


Is it a tilt if so you have to go farther down the column so you can get to the 3 screws that tighten the upper collar so it will not be loose and wiggle if this is your problem. good luck

Steering wheel shaft is loose in column. I removed the steering wheel to replace ignition switch that went ok but when all back together, wheel has about a half inch of play all the way around.


Don't know exactly what you mean, but the steering wheel is tapered and has splines. You sort of wiggle it as you put it on, in order to ensure the splines line up. Then you tighten down the center nut. In which case it can't possibly wiggle.

I have a 1981 Corvette with tilt steering wheel. The steering wheel has started flopping like something is loose in the steering column. Whats going on? Thanks Jim


You must remove the steering cowl below the steering wheel and see what is loose, broken or worn. It more likely to be a loose bolt, in which case just tighten it and refit the cowl.
Hope that helps

Key will turn to start in my 1994 K1500


This solution more than likely will require internal steering column inspection.First make sure the entire steering column is not loose.If you can move the steering wheel w/column from side to side or up and down more than 1/2 inch it's loose.Sometimes the key will engage while wiggling the steering column.There are 3 torx bolts deep inside the column that need tightening.Second,the Ignition key cylinder may be bad and need replacing

Shifter sloppy, having trouble getting it into gear.


There is a bracket with two torx screws that gets loose. You need to tighten that. You will need to remove the plastic and metal shield under the dash, above the brake pedal to see the bracket. Look up above the brake pedal and wiggle the the shift lever and you will see what needs tightened. Worked for me.
