I have a loose steering wheel on a 1997 ford f150 and would like to see or have explained how to remove the steering wheel to make any neccessary repairs,airbag equipped


Safe/disarm the Airbag system by removing the negative battery cable for 5 minutes prior to the start of work, then remove the Airbag capsule from the steering wheel by removing the four machine screws at the rear of the steering wheel, they are down on deep wells, I believe they are 8mm heads, take a flashlight and look first, they used a number of diff screws types so confirm I am right. Once the Airbag capsule is removed remove the large nut under it that retains the steering wheel, then using a steering wheel puller (available from any auto parts store for less than $6) remove the steering wheel, you now have access to the parts that will need to be replaced or tightened if it is a tilt wheel.

The column is very loose and wobbly.


Very common in GM columns. You need to remove steering wheel, use special tool that screws onto center shaft then turn the nut to compress springs, then a snap ring has to be removed. Then remove tool. Remove 3 or 4 phillips screws for turn signal and 2 screw to remove turn signal arm. Pull up on turn signal assembly just enough to get access to 3 phillips screw under assembly which should be loose. Tighten these screws and your wobble will be gone. Good luck. The steering wheel can be removed with a harmonic balancer puller or steering wheel puller. The tool to remove snap ring can be purchased at most auto parts stores I believe for between $15 to $20.

I've just replaced the rotors and brake pads on both front tires and I felt the wheels feel whobbly. Anyone knows why? Thanks.


the wobble you referred to many be the front wheel bearings.
jack the front end of the astro up and wiggle the front tires.

if they wobble or there is a lot of movement check the front
wheel bearings on both sides. they are inexpensive.

Steering column is becoming loose on 1997 Buick Lesabre.


i dont think their is an adjustment under the sterring wheel. ive had mine apart to do a clockspring. the only nut under the air bag is to hold the steering wheel itself on the column, not to tighten the column itself. try looking under the dash for some studs and nuts holding the whole column itself. that should fix your problem. i dont recommend pulling the airbag and steering wheel for any reason. its very comlpicated under their and all the parts are expensive!

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.

Loose steering wheel


Disconnect negative battery cable(10mm).
Insert key and rotate steering wheel until one of the mounting bolts for the airbag are visible from the backside (7/32 or 5.5 mm).Unscrew and rotate 180 degrees until the other is visible.Pry airbag off with a small screwdriver (being very careful) release yellow connector and place airbag aside with leather or vinyl pointing up.
Use a 24mm socket and tighten to 37 ft.pounds.
Reverse procedure to re-install airbag.
Connect cable and remember the computer will have to relearn its settings so car may run different for a while..
