The part that is broken is deep inside the column
you have to strip the column to repair and this will require a few specific special tools
not something I would recommend for a non-automotive tech due to complexity and the air bag issues

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.

Play in steering wheel


What kind of play? Is it a tilt column and the top portion of the column is moving? If yes, the column needs to come apart and some bolts need to be tightened. Also need some specialty tools to do it. Not something for some beginers to do.

If its just the left and right turning that has play, check the joints on the shaft from under the hood. If they look fine it could be a worn box. The steering box usually have a screw with a lock nut on the top. This pushes up against the worm gear to take up slack.
\Be careful adjusting this. Loosen the lock nut and turn the screw about 1/8 turn and tighten the lock nut. Too tight and it puts more wear on it and the vehicle wont return to straight on its own while driving. Also don't test for play while the wheels are off the ground. It would be misleading.

What is the procedure to changing an keyed ignition lock?


Hi there,

Removal

Disconnect the negative battery cable with the proper size wrench and place away from the battery.
Insert the key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn the key to the run position.
Remove the steering column cover on a tilt steering wheel model by pressing the upper and lower section of the cover together and pulling free from the mounting plate. Remove the steering column covers on a non tilt steering wheel model by using a Philips screwdriver and unscrewing the mounting screws.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition switch by lifting up on the release tab and pulling.
Press the ignition switch actuator pin by pushing a small screw driver into the key lock cylinder, while doing this pull the ignition switch out of the ignition switch housing.

Installation

Insert the new key into the new ignition switch and turn the key to the run position. Insert the new ignition switch into the ignition switch housing. Wiggle the switch back and forth until the actuator pin mounting hole is aligned and falls into place.
Install the electrical connector back into the connector housing by pressing it in with your hands.
Place the steering column covers back onto the non tilt steering wheel and insert mounting screws. Tighten screws using a Philips screwdriver. Place the steering column covers over the tilt steering wheel and press the upper and lower portion together to snap covers back into the mounting plate.
Pull on the ignition key to ensure switch is locked into place. Turn key to the "off" position and remove the key. Insert the key and start the vehicle.

Hope these help.

    How do i remove the steering column cover to get at the ignition tumbler on a 1993 dodge dakota


    CAUTION Disconnect and isolate the negative (ground) battery cable. This will disable the air bag system. Failure to disconnect the battery could result in accidental deployment and possible personal injury. Allow the system capacitor to discharge for two minutes then begin air bag system component removal. To install:
    1. Engage the electrical connectors to the ignition switch and make sure the switch locking tabs are fully seated.
    2. Before attaching the ignition switch to a tilt steering column, the transmission shifter must be in the PARK position. Also the park lock dowel pin and the column lock flag must be properly indexed before installing the switch as follows:
      1. Place the transmission shifter in the PARK position
      2. Place the ignition switch in the LOCK position. The switch is in the lock position when the column lock flag is parallel to the ignition switch terminals.
      3. Position the ignition switch park lock dowel pin so it will engage the steering column park lock slider linkage.
      4. Apply a light coating of grease to the column lock flag and the park lock dowel pin.
    3. Place the ignition switch against the lock housing opening on the steering column. Ensure that the ignition switch park lock dowel pin enters the slot in the park lock slider linkage in the steering column.
    4. Install the retaining bracket and ignition switch mounting screws, then tighten the screws to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
    5. If the vehicle is equipped with a tilt steering column, install the tilt lever.
    6. With the key cylinder and the ignition switch in the LOCK position, insert the key cylinder into the ignition switch until it bottoms.
    7. Insert the ignition key into the lock cylinder. While pushing the key cylinder in toward the ignition switch, rotate the ignition key until the end of travel.
    8. Install the retaining screw into the bracket and lock cylinder. Tighten the screw to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
    9. Install the steering column covers, then the tilt lever, if equipped.
    10. Connect the negative battery cable.
    11. Check for proper operation.

    How do i replace an ignition key lock on a 1984 buick lesabre


    Remove steering wheel (steering wheel puller required). Remove lock plate (lock plate depressor tool required). Remove turn signal screws, pivot and 4 way flasher button. Remove 3 #50 torx screws and loosen upper lock housing cover. Remove lower duct from dash--(not fun) by removing 7mm (9/32 head screw. Wiggle the vent around until it comes out. There is a clip that attaches to the lower shift bowl that controls the position of the shift indicator. Don't forget to slide this off or you will break the cable! Remove the 15 mm nuts that attach the steering column bracket to the dash. Remove the wiper delay module from bracket. Remove the 4 13mm head screws attaching the bracket to the column. Remove plastic sleeve holding wires to column. You may not have to disconnect any wire connectors if you have clearance. If you need to disconnect t/s switch, note how it is attached into its holder on the steering column. Now, back at the top of the steering column. Lift the key buzzer out. The retainer will probably stay in place until you remove the cover. Watch for it when you remove the cover. Its black, made of spring steel and is folded in half. Next, use a # 20 torx driver to remove the ignition lock cylinder retainer screw. Remove cylinder. Take both hands and pull cover far enough so that it can hang free and out of your way. You will find a spring with a silver head w/ a square hole. Make sure the column is in the full up position. Just take the tilt lever and pull towards you and the tilt will go into the full up position. Take a #2 phillips and insert into the square hole, push down and turn counter clockwise. Remove the cap and the spring. Take the little plastic lever that will have grease on it from the tilt area and set it to the side for now. This lever controls the bright lights and is known as a high beam actuator. Next--remove the spring from the upper shaft. Remove the bearing retainer by inserting an awl into one of the holes on the retainer. If you don't get this off at this time, no big deal. Then you need a couple of 10x24 threaded hardened screws. You will need to take a **** or wire cutters with something the can be pivoted on such as a wrench (or a Snap-on pivot tool remover) and thread into the pivot screws. You need to pull these pivot pins out! Once the pivot pins are removed Tilt the bearing housing upward and with both hands a Little to the left. Br careful because the ignition lock rack (toothed) with a loop around the ignition lock cylinder actuator rod.

    Steering column is loose on 97 sunfire. How can i fix it?


    You have a tilt steering wheel! This is a problem with most GM tilt wheels. There is 3 or 4 screws you need to have tightened up; which requires tearing down the steering to get to them and put lock tight on them and tighten them back up, so they will not happen again for a long time.
