Tilt Steering Lever mechanism snapped
Has anyone had the lever mehcanism snap for the tilt wheel assembly? The level itself didn't snap, but I think there's a cable inside the column that controls the tilting that felt like it snapped. Now the lever moves up/down, but the steering wheel doesn't. Thankfully the steering wheel is locked in a somewhat comfortable positon...
What kind of repair would this involve? Tearing down the whole steering column? Can it be taken apart easily without compromising the airbag control?
Any threads people have seen with a step by step?
