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.

There are 3 bolts under the steering wheel that sometimes work loose, usually because of people grabbing steering wheel to pull themselves into truck. You will have to rent or buy a steering wheel puller & re-tighten the bolts that are under it.I would reccommend cleaning them & using locktight brand thread lock.

To remove the steering wheel from your 1985 Chevy Celebrity: First remove the horn button. There should be a keeper at the tip of the steering shaft, remove it. Remove the nut that holds the wheel in place. Use a steering wheel puller to actually remove the steering wheel.

Removing a standard steering wheel from a Chevy Cavalier requires taking off the lower steering column and horn button. The steering wheel is held on by mounting screws, after removed be sure to unplug the horn wire.

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.

It can be hard to remove a steering wheel by hand on any vehicle. To remove it, there is a tool, steering wheel puller, that can be bought or rented from local auto shops. It will help remove the steering wheel.

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.

Replacing a steering knuckle on a Chevy Colbalt is easy. All you have to is take the steering wheel off and replace the old one.

It's on the corner of the steering wheel. With little horn signs. It's not in the middle of the steering wheel.

The steering wheel cannot be bypassed to rewire turn signals in a 1989 Chevy Corsica. The switch for the wires is in the steering column. If the steering wheel were bypassed, the wires would not be connected to the switch.

Assuming you have power steering, you may have a loose belt or the power steering system has a leak and the power steering fluid reservoir is low or empty.

Use a basic steering wheel puller. It should come with three different sets of bolts one will match up and then tighten the center bolt until steering wheel comes off.
