Steering wheel comes out

Recommended Posts

My steering wheels come out as if there is no tilt lock? Is there some locking mechanism that can easily break? I tried looking in the boxster teachnical manual section 48 but could not find anything related. The steering wheels come in and out whenever, usually under hard acceleration it will pop up. Otherwise I have it sitting in as deep as possible.

Any help on repairing this would be greatly appreciated.

Your profile says you have a 1998, and the steering wheel did not tilt back then. Just slides up and down.

yes that sliding up and down. Its loose on my car. Just goes up whenever it wants. There is a lever below the wheel but it dosn't do anything.

I looked at the repair manual section 48 but nothing about the lock, there is something called steering lock but i don't know if that is related that just locks the wheel when there is no key in ignition. I found my level in a picture on 48-37 but nothing more about it.

Thanks

I highly recommend further investigation of the cause - this could be very dangerous if something in the steering has failed. Or, if the column has partially collapsed.
