this is a common thing with GM tilt wheels. what has happened is the u joint in the column has come loose.can be repaired by removing steering wheel and turn signal assembly and then tighten up bolts. Another way is to find a repair shop that does "steering column repair",in Chicago most glass shops do.

If the steering column is broken on a 1989 Firebird, it may have to be taken apart to be repaired. If it is only the ignition that the thieves damaged, a new ignition can be installed.

The steering column on a vehicle can be replaced. A repair book for the vehicle make and model instructs how to repair the issue. This is considered a minor repair but if a person has no experience fixing a steering column, it may be best to have the job done by a professional.

There are 4 bolts at the bottom of the steering column that tend to get loose after entering and exiting your vehicle. Pulling your self up on the steering wheel puts stress the steering column and causes it to become loose. If you do not correct the problem fast by tightening the bolts you will have to replace the entire steering column.. -Henry's locksmith and steering column repair

The horn on the 92 Firebird is located behind the front bumper. The horn button is located on the steering wheel. Pictures can be found in a Firebird repair manual.

Repairing a steering column in a 95 Caprice depends on what the problem is. Problems with the tilt could require the outer column to be repaired, while a binding steering might need the u joints to be replaced.

The method of repair depends on what is broken or worn the steering column. In a 1963 Impala has universal joints and couplings that can wear, as well as electrical connections. Any of these will wear over time.

I'm trying to fix my truck myself, and I am a beginner. If I knew what exactly a steering column looked like I might be able to repair it myself.

If the column has no key cylinder, just like any other column. If the key is lost/missing re-building the column will replace the cylinder.

It would help if you could say what the symptoms are.

I don't know. However, generally speaking when a steering column is wrecked by theft damage as you indicate, the least expensive course is to have an experienced technician install a used steering column from a salvage vehicle. Try to ensure the used column is from a salvage vehicle that has not been wrecked through front end collision.
