    Finally got my K5 back in action and the new (old) tilt collumn in and after a trip up north and back, the Collumn wobbles right at the tilt. It has more play right to left than it does up and down, but I would like it nice and tight like it was when it was new. Never have dug deep into these collumns, but i think I remember there being an adjustment or a way to tighten these things back up.

    If anyone has done this, please let me know if possible and what It might involve.

    Thanks! :D

    You are rite, there are 2 screws that you can tighten up to fix your wobbling problem. You have to take off the steering wheel the horn, and turn signal thingy, and the 2 screws should be behind that. You will need a long screw driver to tighten them up. This is just a basic desription of what you have to do. So good luck.
