Is there any way to tighten anything to make the lever lock the steering wheel (in the up or down position)??

    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:
