Customer Question
I have a 2009...

I have a 2009 f250 super duty crew cab. The tilt wheel lever has never been attached since I have owned it, 3 years. Now suddenly the tilt wheel goes uo and down, doesn't secure. Thoughts?

Mechanic's Assistant: Besides this, what condition is the car in?

Excellent

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F-250 Super Duty yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm going to try to fix. Haven't tried anything yet, except visually looking at it.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you gotten the shroud off yet?

Does the lever spring back properly?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The lever is missing since I owned the truck. The steering wheel stayed locked in the up position. Now it flops up and down.
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

oh so you will need a lever then

I haven't needed it in 3 years. Now it flops up and down. Can I lock it in place?
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

From the diagram It looks like there is 3 prices to make that happen, you should be able to set the locking cam in place but with no lever you will have to rig it up some way, can you send some pictures maybe I can see something better that way, the diagrams are not to detailed

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
