Question about 1997 Lexus LS 400
1997 Lexus LS400 - telescopic steering wheel won't tilt down, I can hear a gear spinning. It will go in and out, just not down.
I would be okay if I could turn OFF the automatic steering wheel movement once i got the wheel down where i want it.
Open the gear motor on the left hand side of the telelscopic assembly. Take the plate off held by 4 philips screws. Using a 10mm socket, remove the bolt holding the platic gear. Remove plastic gear and insert the reverse way. Over the years, one side of the gears get worn out.

Yes it would be perfectly ok to disegauge the auto switch to keep it from moving again. It needs a tilt motor replaced . not a easy job.
