Well if its loose like mine was (where it flops up and down) You will find a pin missing that locks it into place. Basically it holds it into one of three positions. Replace the pin lots of options at hardware store if you cant get the original.

you take out whatever is making the tilt thingy tilt and it becomes non-tiltable

If your car has a tilt wheel it is operated by a short lever below the turn signal. Pull back on the lever to tilt the wheel.

You must loosen the top motor mount and tilt the engine forward.

They are on the actual blade assembly. Tilt them back & you wil see the fluid line line on the backside.

Unfortunately, tilt wheels are fairly complex and your question can't be answered here. Sorry. The problem seem to be a common one for this make, model and year of the car, and is caused by a loosening of the metal pin that holds the steering portion of the wheel in place upon the steering column. You can opt to use a hammer and chisel to pound the metal pin back into the column on your own to get it to hold up the steering wheel, however, since this is actually a common occurrence, specifically for the 1994 Pontiac Grand AM, according to GM dealership mechanics, the price is about $300 to have it done by a licensed professional that knows how to reset the airbag system that's in the steering wheel.

It is a steering wheel that can be adjusted to different angles.

Usually means the car has a tilt (adjustable) steering wheel.

There are two metal things that hold on to the wheel when the tilt is adjusted. They probably broke off.

You have broken wires in the tilt wheel. You will need to take the steering wheel off and start looking for a broken wire in the steering column somewhere. You will have to have a steering wheel puller to get it off.

the fan is located in front of the radiator you should be able to see it. its not a very big fan though. tilt your head a little and you should se it.

i have a 1993 ford f 150 truck , it has the same problem, i removed the steering wheel and found a bad bearing. i just need a schematic drawing to see how to replace, and to see the order in which to remove.

Sorry...you can't tilt it! I think they added that feature in about 2008.

For the 1997 Mercury Villager, the limited tilt steering wheel is very limited. This is likely due to design constraints.

User Avatar

Depends on if your car is equipped with tilting capabilities. I have an 02 GL as well and it does not tilt, unfortunately that was an option.

User Avatar

If you have tilt steering, there should be a switch or little pull lever on the left side of the steering wheel, but i havent had a tilt in any of my Paseo's xP

MOST VEHICLES WITH TILT STEERING HAVE A LEVER LOCATED ON THE STEERING WHEEL SECTION OR ON THE STEERING COLUMN.THIS LEVER IS PULLED OR PUSHED AND ALLOWS THE STERRING COLUMN TO TILT

It is used for the scrolling in the monitor.

usually steeing wheels don't come loose. the steering colomn is probibly just worn out an needs replaced. if it is just loose you need to un hook the battery and pull out the screws on the back of the steering wheel that will let yu remove the airbag and once that is out of the way you can see the nut in the center of the steering wheel and just tighten it back up and put everything back together. actually tilt wheels can come loose ,do the same as above but instead of tightening the center nut undo it then with a steering wheel puller take wheel off take out signal switch ,now the tricky part theres 3 torx screws which attach the top half of the cloum to the tilt kuckel .can only tighten 1 or 2 sometimes but it works. if you need to go and buy manual or go ask Pontiac dealer for a shematic .

The bolts have come loose that hold the upper/lower column parts together. It is a very common problem. Take the car somewhere that can break the column down to tighten the bolts. Though it is a fairly easy job, there is a lot of parts that have to be removed/replaced, and it is quite involved.

If your van is equipped with this feature as it was and still is today an option. There will be two levers on the left side of the steering wheel. One will be for the turn signal, the other about half the length is the tilt. Pull it toward you, and the steering wheel will move freely.

A bad wheel bearing can cause your tire to tilt inward. The motion of the tire tilt thing in word, while you are driving, can cause the axle to break and the tire to come off.
