Did this video help you?

doscincos: The small plastic piece mentioned    ( that pushes on bright push rod end ]   fell out, After 3 hrs in 100 degree heat. Decided to  come  ask   How in hell does it stay in during assembly. Has radius end against rod end. fits in 1/4 round groove above toward center. Doesn't appear to snap onto turn signal arm end,    Just butts to it  ?

videos varios: whats tool is minute 10:00 thanks bro

Tim Nagy: Thank you Robert, it's exactly what I needed

Bret Osborne: E8 torx socket.

IT'SME: Those torx screws weren't that loose but we romoved them anyway and applied locktite. The steering wheel still has a tremendous amount of play as before we disassembled . What could be wrong?

MrJohnnyDistortion: We found out the trick for removing that inner casing @ 11:15. Reinstall the tilt lever. straighten out the shaft, pull back on the lever and it releases the two feet holding it in place and the inner case slides up and out exposing the joint and bolts. Me thinks you accidentally missed that step in your video. But hey, that's why I check other video sources. Thanks for you video nonetheless.

MrJohnnyDistortion: We're having difficulty pulling apart the inner casing @11:15 in your video.

IT'SME: Is this the same type steering column as the Saginaw in a 1990 Dodge Caravan?

IT'SME: At 11:50 you mentioned an inverted torx driver and/or socket. Can you please clarify what that is thst is? Thanks for the great video.

Bohappenstance Click: Thanks for the vid. Don't know why anyone would vote it down. I love a vid that moves right along or flows. I don't need to know every little thing, just the highlights and perils (such as the high beam rod) so this was perfect for me. I can see how someone with little mechanical experience might have an issue though. Keep up the good work Bob.

Sean Topham: I had to put the tilt lever back on and disengage the tilt.

Sean Topham: Never mind, I got it! Thank you sir! Very helpful. Probably saved me $300

Sean Topham: Robert, I have a question. I have it taken apart all the way down to removing the final collar, but there is something still holding it in. I believe it may be the tilt paws on top. You skipped that part. Did you remove something else?
Thanks for the help!

charles Herrmann: Robert: Might you know the external torx bolt size (E?)on the 3 nuts that are loose at bottom?

mad drifter: 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?
