Re: steering wheel moves

common problem is that there three bolts below the tilt mechanism that loosen off, this will require dis assembly of the column down to these bolts, the other rod that downs column might be for the ignition switch.

Re: steering wheel moves

This is a time-consuming thing to fix but you need to fix it or the wheel will continue to get worse. This is a VERY common issue with 3rd Gens and I just fixed my son's steering wheel because of this.

Take pictures of the disassembly--especially how the light switch and associated parts should be assembled.

Also be VERY careful with any of the screws going into aluminum--I stripped 3 and had to helicoil them--NOT fun and it added an extra 2 hours to the repair. Google the issue and you will find websites that show how to tear it down.
