Hi! I strongly suggest that you replace the tilt mechanism. This will cost you a little bit so my advice is you pick one from the junkyard to cost you less. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier without tilt. Can I replace it with tilt steering?


Yes but it would likely cost more than you would want to spend. I estimate about 600 in shop cost and part cost as you have to pull the steering assembly. Can be done cheaper with a used shaft if you can find one.

My steering wheel shakes for my 2004 manual transmission chevy cavalier


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Does it shake when you're going fast? If that's the case then have the wheel balanced. If the wheel is unbalanced it will shake during high speed driving. Try to check the underchassis bushings too. If you have worn out bushings issues like this can occur.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Steering column is loose at tilt knuckle


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. it 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, 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 that hold the joint together have to be re-tightened and loctite or glued in place. You can find info with pictures here (the instructions are for a Chevy Blazer but the steps are the same) http://www.superchevy.com/tech/sucp_0707_tilt_steering_column/index.html Maybe a job better suited for a dealer or local shop.

My horn quit working but the relay and fuse are still good. Am still getting current to these places. But when you push the horn button..nothing happens. 2004 chevy cavalier. 2 door hardtop.


It sounds like the switch itself, on the steering wheel, are not making contact. I'm guessing that if you can remove the front part of the steering wheel you could check and clean the contacts and also give you a chance to test the horn, while you are in there.

Steering wheel wobbles left,right, up and down,


Does this have a tilt steering wheel?If it does then it sounds like the tilt part is coming apart,need to take the steering wheel of and get to the tilt part and tighten up the bolts/screws,if you have never done this i highly suggest you take it to a professional.The other way to repair this easy is to buy a used steering column that is good and replace the whole unit .

How to remove the key and lock ingnition on a 1999 chevy cavilier


Detach the negative battery terminal and disable the airbag system if you have it. Remove the steering wheel. To do that remove the clip and the large nut and then use a steering wheel puller. (You will need to buy or rent a steering wheel puller They can be found at most auto parts stores) Remove the turn signal switch assembly. Place the lock cylinder in the run position. Remove the turn signal switch housing screws. If you have tilt steering column you will need to remove the pivit pins on the sides of the tilt housing. (you will need a pivit pin puller which can be found at an auto parts store). Pull the buzzer switch out (make sure you note how this is correctly replaced. If done wrong the buzzer will stay on....it is a little plastic piece with two wires). Turn the lock cylinder to Accessory. Remove the lock cylinder screw which is by the buzzer switch you just removed. Remove the lock cylinder.
