loose steering column

New Interiors
I pulled the steering wheel off and here is what I see...... There are three phillips screws holding on the turn signal apparatus..... I can physically move the main shaft a little by hand but I cant see anywhere it can be tightened. Any ideas?

On most wheels, if you pull out the turn signal plate you will see, and be able to swap out, the top bearing. I'm still of the opinion that is your culprit.

I have to agree with Cboy.I thought when you said your wheel was loose,You was talking about the tilt.Sorry.Then yes I would think it's your bearing.Sometimes if the shaft come's up,It will let it get loose.You should be able to see the top bearing now.

On the columns I've done, the bearing just pulled straight up and slipped over the end of the steering shaft. You might have to use a small, sharp pry to get it started. Do you have the turn signal plate off and have you tried yet to get it off? If you are having trouble it might be best if you could post up a picture. Columns are all different, so your's might have some other way of getting at it.

There are a couple ways to post a photo...I think this is the easiest.

When you are on the edit screen (like you were doing a post) scroll down to "Manage Attachments" and click it.

A window will come up with the boxes saying "Browse". Click on the first one and it will take you to the directory of your computer. Then just work your way through your directory until you find the photo you want to post. Once you find it, click it and the address for it should now appear in your Manage Attachments screen. If you have a second photo, click the second browse box down and proceed as above.

Once you have all the photo addresses listed, just click on the "upload" button. It will take a few minutes and then you will be returned to your editing screen so you can proceed with your post as normal

When you finish your post, the pictures will appear as thumbnails at the end of the post. But we can then click on them to see the enlargements.

BTW, there is a limit on photo size. I usually make my photos about 4" x 6" at 100 dpi.
