Re: Tilt Column Fix
Dale, Used your page and the Chevy page that LEVE put up when this all started. Was able to use the general instructions from both yesterday on my 88 YJ with Cruise...There are some differences, but they are minor, until you get to the part about removing the lower tilt assmebly, mine has something at the top of the tilt area that would NOT let go...could't figure out what it was (also snapped of a 8-32 bolt flush on one of the tilt pins...fortunately the pin was out just far enough to grab it with some channel locks...). Without being able to remove the lower tilt assembly I was able to stand on my head or crawl under the front seat enough to get to 3 of the loose rev-torx bolts...pulled them, slathered them in Loc-Tite and put it all back together. Once I had it all together I started all the checks...turn signal leaver moved and clicked, key would move in all the right detents, hazard switch clicked on and off. So I reconnected the battery to check the lights and NOTHING...no turn signals, no hazards, no key buzzer,no horn, no start! ACK! Now I've really FUBARED my Jeep...Oh yea...gotta re-connect the plug down under the dash... [img]images/graemlins/bag.gif[/img]
Thanks for an excellent write up. Now my stearing wheel is not all wiggly-jiggly.
I snapped some high res shots while doing mine, if you would like I can email them to you and you can use them if you like.
