I have an 87' GN and all of a sudden on Friday it's like my whole steering column has play in it, up and down, and side to side, no matter which position it's locked in. Also I'm having trouble getting the key out sometimes. :dunno:
to get the key out when stuck...grab the hub on the column (the hub where a column shifter would attach) and rotate it a bit further conunterclockwise and see if that releases the key. If so, crawl under the car and adjust the rod running from the linkage on the side of the tranny to the lever sticking out of the column in front of the firewall. Probably will have to make it a little longer. Might check the grommet in the lever to make sure it has not fallen apart.
