If it has tilt steering, you must pull steering wheel, plate, and lift up turn signal switch to access three torx screws. Remove one at a time, apply locktite and tighten. Reverse procedure.

If it is not a tilt wheel, then you may have a worn bearing or a loose center steering wheel nut. Must inspect.

Go to your local parts supplier and get an exploded picture of the steering column. Most will have this as a free service. The steering wheel has to come off, as well as some pieces to get to the bolts that hold it together. Tighten the bolts and it should be fine. This is a common problem and will probably take you about 1 - 1.5 hours to do depending on options vehicle has.
