Q:

Unable to lock position on steering wheel on 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Is there any way to tighten anything to make the lever lock the steering wheel (in the up or down position)??
(1) Answer
There are some bolts inside the steering column that have come loose. The only way that I have been able to properly fix this situation is to disassemble the steering column and tighten those bolts with red loctite. By the way, they are often #8 reverse head torx bolts.

here are some shops:
