According to the service manual, it says using a suitable tool, try and pry behind it while grasping it and pulling it straight out. I have not removed one myself, I have had many gm columns apart and they just snap in and out. According to the ford manual they appear to be the same.

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.

How do i adjust the tilt steering


There should be a small lever, usually on the left of the steering column, under the steering wheel. If you pull or lift on the lever, it allows the steering wheel to be tilted up or down. When you release the lever or push it down, it will lock the steering wheel at that height.
Cheers.

How to remove commutatuer switch on 2003 dodge van


I think he is referring to the ignition switch. I think Switch Translates to French as commutator or interrupter. After removing the steering column covers, You will need toremove the lock cylinder. Once that is out of the way you will need to unplug the clock spring connector for the airbag. Than if you have tilt wheel you will need to remove the tilt lever. Non tilt wheel will have a bracket that needs to be removed. You will than be able to access the screws that hold the ignition switch in place.

1987cadallic deville steeringwheel


Hi,

Usually, vehicles with tilt adjust steering, have a small lever just under the steering wheel column. Pulling this lever out, unlocks the wheel. Pushing lever back in, locks the wheel.

Have a look for a lever of this type and once you find it, have your Dad hold the steering wheel at his preferred position, then push the locking lever back up, to lock the wheel in place.

Let me know if you resolve this.....


Cheers,

Hi, the likely problem is a failed switch. Remove the switch according to instructions below and then start the truck again. If the wipers stay off, replace the switch. If they still come on, please get back to me.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the steering wheel.
  2. On vehicles equipped with tilt wheel, remove the tilt lever.
  3. On vehicles equipped with tilt wheel, remove the steering column collar by pressing on the collar from the top and bottom while removing the collar.
