You will need a special tool (available through Lisle, Snap-on, Mac, Matco, and possibly as a loaner through Auto Zone) which is a small bolt-puller combination to remove the tilt pivot pins. It has been a while since I have done this so please refer to a manual for all of the particulars. You have to remove the steering wheel and other items to get to these pivots. Once the pivots are removed, you can access the 4 bolts that need tightened. It would be a good idea to remove the bolts and apply lock-tite to them.
