Answer . \nTake it to the shop:)
Answer . \nYou'll have to pull the steering wheel and tilt assembly apart to repair this. You will require some specialized tools to make this repair. If you're not that c…ompetent with doing your own repairs, I would suggest taking it to the dealer for service on this. It will probably run you about $125 or so.

How do you tighten the tilt steering wheel bolt in the steering column on a 1989 Chevy silverado 2500?
Answer . This should be done by a professional unless you are very mechanically enclined and have some specialty tools. Everything from the pivot point up needs to be remo…ved to access the 4 inverted torx drive bolts that have come loose.
I am not sure this is the trouble, if you remove the cover on the steering wheel there will be a large nut if this nut is tight the splines on the wheel could be bad, might be… looking at replacing the column, or the steering wheel. I the nut is loose simple tighten and replace cover.
You can have your steering column tighten for approximately $75.The cost is dependent upon the hourly rate of the mechanic.

Where can you get an exploded view of the steering wheel and column for a 1990 Chevy Silverado 1500?
book stores may have a repair manual for your truck, or your local library may have the book, and you can copy the page at the library.
If it has excessive wear in the rack & pinion then rebuilding or replacement may be necessary.
Up to 1994 will fit, Chev or GMC
No there is not.
you will need a special tool called a steering wheel puller. they are needed to compress the rings around the column and wheel and release it so you can remove the main nut.
Do you have a tilt steering wheel ?? If so then more then likely the wires are shorted out where the wheel tilts. Common problem.
The column has to be diassembled, there are 3 torque screws that come loose and also there is a bering that wears
You have to replace the entire steering column. It is not loose, the lock is broken on your column height adjuster.
If your referring to having loose steering, then you need to tighten the adjustment set screw on the steering box under the hood. Don't tighten this to much, or it will lock u…p the gears. Typically a loose box needs to be replaced, in very few cases will tightening the set screw actually help.
