SOURCE: steering column
The three bolts are the most common problem but the two pins that hold the pivot together can come out or the housing wears out causing loosness. you should have seen them when accesing the bolts. they are threaded internally and sometimes you have to stake them in place. good luck

There are three bolts under everything that you see. The steering wheel comes off first,then the retainer ring has to come off(it's on the same steem that the wheel is on,there is a tool for that). There is a plate with slots in it that will come off. Pull everything else out carefuly as not to lose any screws or break any wires, and you should see the three screws in a triangle formation. Tightin them & reasemble.

SOURCE: 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.

Without taking the tilt mechanism off you can only reach 2 of the 3 bolts. If you use 1/4 in. socket on 1/4 in drive with 6 in extension you can just get at the left bolt. If you remove the tilt spring you can get to the bottom bolt. To remoce tilt spring retainer use standard Phillips.

This problem is very common, your best bet is to go to the nearest junk yard and look for a new column. The amount of work needed to try to get into that u joint isn't worth it and matching up the u joint at your local parts store can be a nightmare. Swapping out the column is a twenty minute job. I grabbed a column from a GMC and just swapped the horn button from my chevy, you'd never know it wasn't orginal.
