General Motor cars will have this problem if you use the steering wheel as leverage to get in and out of the front seat. They use a ratcheting ball and socket to allow the column to tilt. t is held together with 4 screws, like a box. These screws work loose and allow the wheel to feel like it floats. It is a hard job esp. with an air bag to deal with. The steering column has to be almost removed from the car to fix. Removing the steering wheel and all covers down to the floor board / firewall area. The screws have to be re-tightened and loctite or glued in place. A job better suited for a dealer or local shop who can deal with the air bag. Sorry.

Tile wheel won't move back down in position


As you move the tilt lever to release the lock pawl from the rack the wheel will move. Yours does not it seems so the rack inside this tilt housing has broken off and has bounded up making the tilt option inoperatble. The steering column will be needed to be torn apart and replace this broken housing with a new one

Have a 92 SVX. The tilt steering wheel will only lock in the low down position, otherwise it just floats! Any ideas?


There are 2 adjusters on the steering column, One on the left side that tilts the wheel up to make it easier to get in and out, and one on the bottom to adjust for comfort.
