No i dont have tilt, and ive got stock tires as well, im in the process of removing the steering column now, in putting in a new ignition so im hoping it find whatever is the source of the problem, but having a bit of trouble

im gonna attach some pics of where im stuck, the haynes manual i have doesnt seem to tell me much about the non airbag model steering columns.

any help would be appreciated

thanks a ton

That flat black steel ring has to be pressed down and a lock ring around the steering shaft removed. The steel ring is spring loaded.Then remove that steel ring to get to the signal switch underneath
