    If you were a paid member, you could do a search and find several threads on the topic, as well as links to related articles presently published on the Internet. :thumb:

    But basically, you need to take your entire steering column apart, down to the tilt mechanism, loctite and retighten three or four Torx screws, and reassemble the sucker.
