Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab
What happens is that there are 3 or 4 small screw type bolts that come loose down by the tilt mechanism. As time goes on these little bolts get looser and looser and the column moves around more and more. You have to disassemble the column from the top downward to get to these and it's a fairly complicated job as there are a lot of small pieces, switches, and linkages that have to be put back together correctly so it will all work when you are done. I always put thread locker on these small bolts to prevent them from coming loose again. It's a fairly involved procedure to do this job the first few times so if you're not fully comfortable with it I would suggest having a good service facility do it for you. I usually can do one in a little over an hour, depending on how much cleaning I need to do to dirty/sticky column components.
