Hi there. The tilt steering wheel function is inside the steering column and can break due to excessive use, debris inside the steering column or other mechanical issues. If the lever doesn’t loosen, this could be just stuck, requiring some maintenance or broken, which will require repair. It’s probably a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a steering column inspection.
