Loose steering wheel

10

Asked by Oct 06, 2016 at 09:26 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt LT1

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While I was driving to work I noticed my steering
wheel would just move up and down freely I tried
relocating it in place becomes it has tilt steering
but it did nothing. After I got to work I looked on
the floor of the car an there was a really long bolt
laying there. Could this have anything to do with
the tilt steering not locking in place? The bolt is
about 6 to 7 inches long. But I didn't have time to
see where it goes because I had to clock into work.
I'm currently still at work I work night shift. The
power steering still works fine just the steering
wheel moves up and down freely. Like if I push on
the steering wheel it will go all the way up an if I
take pressure off of it it will go back down to the
lowest position of the tilt steering. Can any one
help me figure out where this bolt goes to?
