charles Herrmann: Robert: Might you know the external torx bolt size (E?)on the 3 nuts that are loose at bottom?
Chuck Norris: After fighting my way through the maze GM calls a steering column on my 85 cutlass I found out that: a) The upper bearings are toast. plastic cages were broken into a million little pieces. b) The damn bolts were actually tight. c) The steering column STILL wobbles.
It seems like the lower bearings (or possibly something else down the column) are the culprit here.
Thanks a bunch though. Definitely helped me out!
roger b: I got 89 cutlass supreme and the bolt going into the right pivot pin is broke-off,i've tried drilling it out,but the metal won't cut(too hard).
tedb310: Thank you for the video. I learned several things. First, it's not a super serious problem. Second, it looks like kind of a pain in the ass. Third, I have a really reasonable mechanic that makes the cost of buying the specialized tools to do the job myself seem kind of silly.
VengefulSage: this is a pain in the freaking ass!! my tilt steering is loose but not my steering column. I don't think I will be doing this. Note to car makers, make an easier way of tighten the tilts instead of taking the whole freaking thing off
Jenny T: I will purchase the tools cozy I found them and will make all so a video with that
Jenny T: can I drill to a side just to remove the key barrel?
Evgeniy P. Panin: Dear Robert,thanks for great video instruction!!! I have the same problem on my Suburban V1500 1990...I'ill fix it soon.Than you so much!!!
Gerry K: Thanks for posting this video! I have a 91 GMC Sierra and I was told by a GM dealer that the whole column needs to be replaced. And the quote with labor was over $600. Now after watching this video you posted I can go purchase the pullers from Parts Source and do the job myself! I just hope I can find that small pin puller up here in Canada. I do have one question! My GMC is a manual transmission So would there be less to disassemble? And I plan to replace the ignition while I'm at it also.
ScoobyDigites: good video for if you want to change your old crappy looking steering wheel
olov244: I didn't do too bad, going back together was a pita, messed up the turning lock spring but I'll mess with that another day
Garrett Owens: this vid is pretty useful, but i have something lose behind where thoes 4 bolts are, is there anything back there that needs to be tightened up? or replaced?
Don Gottlieb: i m in middle os this but on a 1972 chevy c 10 ,, no key ig on col its on dash. can't get the solid inner chunk housing out . to get to the bolts to tighten the upper shaft ,, the upper shaft bearing seems good .. might need to get a third bolt 12-24 thread 3 inches long and pull like the wheel unless theres another trick ,, ugh my tilt is wobbly just like the 91 in your vid .
bill shank: HA!! COOL JUST SAW YOUR LINK THAT SHOW A CLOSEUP OF THE HIGH BEAM SWITCH ROD AND THAT PLASTIC PEICE I DIDNT KNOW HOW TO RE INSTALL IT I THINK AFTER SEEING THAT PIC ON 27 I CAN TACKLE THIS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CREATE THIS VIDEO YOU HAVE HELPED ME OUT GREATLY !! AND I THANK YOU FOR THAT.
bill shank: AT 11:14 IN THE VIDEO YOU START TO TAKE THE LAST PEICE OF THE PUZZLE OUT BUT YOU DO NOT EXPLAIN HOW IT COMES OUT I COULD NOT GET MINE OUT. I ENDED UP JUST TIGHTENING THE TWO BOTTOM SCREWS AND WERE NOT ABLE TO GET THEM OUT TO LOC TITE THEM AND WHE I PUT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER THE BRIGHT SWITCH JUST FLOPS AROUND THERE IS A SMALL BLACK PLASTIC PEICE THAT I DIDNT PAY ATTENTION HOW IT CAME OFF SO I DIDNT KNOW HOW TO REPLACE IT. CAN YOU HELP ME PLEASE
Barry Heminger: Barry here again. Forgot to put the tilt handle back on after. Now its off. Thanks
Barry Heminger: Hey Robert, Barry here. 1990 Chevy k1500. Tilt pins are out and I've been trying to snake the housing off for an hour. Bottom half is free but the top is not. Any possibility my housing has another pin or screw in addition to what you you have described?
Andeckerz Raybeam: Too bad you can't just throw a hole or two in the cover piece to access it the next time without all the disassembly. Them cover it with a rubber sewer line hose fitting or something that approximate size isn't it? What difference would a fatter column cover make that moves up and down ? to access the monster?
Sean Schaeffer: Will this work on a 1986 Chevy caprice? Great video 👍👍👍👍
