Some tilt columns may require specialty tools to disassemble and reassemble. I would recommend purchasing a shop manual for that vehicle if you intend on repairing it yourself. You may have broken parts in there that you won't find until you take it apart, plus depending what year you have , you may have an air bag to deal with.

Most of the time it is the bushing in the top of the column. .Pull the steering wheel off,pull the locking plate for the steering wheel,pull the blinker assembly,then you will come to a stiff spring that preloads the bushing under it.....That bushing,and spring need to be replaced,and you have cured your problem. . . . .
