Tried Bronco boys write-up for this but can´t find an answer for my problem..

My tilt function on the steering column doesn´t work, nothing happends when you push the turn lever forward.
If you push the tilt jaw by hand it works fine and you can adjust it.

The metal rod doesn´t travel enough to push the jaw open.





Do these get bend by time? It looks quite straight..



Do I dare to bend it slightly or will it snap of..?!

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, I tryied push as hard as I dared before I took it apart. The problem is that the metal rod isn´t doing anything to the tilt jaw.

Can anyone please tell me if their column looks like mine inside?

Wo-hoo! It now works!

Thought I try massbronco solution out and push the metal rod really hard a couple of times and it broke free. Lubed everything up and put it all together of course it didn´t work anymore...

So I pushed a little more...breaking the turn signal plastic housing where you put the lever in... :banghead

..but it works and I´ve got tilt wheel! :chili:
