You have to remove the steering wheel ,lockplate, turn signal assembly and you will get to four bolts that are loose. Go to your local auto patrs store and tell them you need the special tool (lockplate removal tool and steering wheel puller)for GM steering colums.

How do you tighten the bolts on the ignition switch yoke of a 1989 Pathfinder?

you must remove the steering column cover to gain access to the screws, they will be on the left side of the steering column, four of them in all. If you have a problem with the ignition switch being loose, to prevent it from happening again you should remove the screws and apply some " loc tite" to the threads. This is only true if the vehicle is equipped with a steering lock, all other models the switch is mounted on the bottom half of the steering column cover.

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 removed to access the 4 inverted torx drive bolts that have come loose.

How much should you expect to pay to fix a steering column on a 91 Chevy crs?

What it would cost to fix your steering column depends on what is wrong with it and you did not tell us. The tilt steering column in my 1989 GMC Suburban became loose in the tilt mechanism. I was quoted as much as $125.00 to fix it, but I shopped around and got it repaired for $60.00. Unless your steering column has the same problem that number is probably useless. I would suggest you call several shops and get a quite to fix it.
