Steering wheel moves up and down

Recommended Posts

I’ve had the common clutch pedal box issue with my car and have repaired it myself. However after replacing the steering column the steering wheel can now move about an inch upwards with relatively low force. Also while turning the wheel it becomes loose and then harder to turn at certain places. Would this be due to some bolt I have missed out or something? 

If anyone could help me sort this issue I’d be very grateful!

Two things here... first guess is clock spring has been turned while steering was off. Movement probably by a bolt being left out.

Hello thanks for the fast reply!

i believe it’s only the two sheer bolts holding the steering column in? When the steering wheel moves it appears as if it’s from the height adjustment thingy however I can’t stop this from happening even with pulling the lever up. Also does anyone have a diagram of the column as this might help?
