I have an '87 camaro with a tilt steering wheel that is starting to wobble pretty bad,
both up & down and side-to-side. The actual tilt part still works fine but when it is locked into position, there is still a lot of play in the wheel.

Any ideas on how to tighten it up???

You can remove steeringwheel and turn signal assy,and theres 3 0r 4 bolts down in the column youll need a flash light to see them youll need a 1/4 inch socket set and an extension.

Thanks Don! I was hoping there was a way to loosen and slide that sleeve down to get at those bolts but I don't know if or how I can. I'm glad to hear that I can get to them by removing the steering wheel.

I work at a chevrolet dealer in service, we tighten these lower housing bolts all the time, very common on gm colums. good luck
