Loose steering wheel.

Okay. This one is odd. It just started happening. So it's not that there is play in the steering feel. But I can grab a hold of my steering wheel and rock it back and forth, side to side maybe a quarter inch or less. It feels like the physical mounting point of the steering wheel to the column has loosened. Maybe the mounting bolts? Any ideas?

You can take the hornpad/airbag off. Check first for two 10mm bolts on backside of the steering wheel under cosmetic covers. If you are able to remove hornpad, DISCONNECT BATTERY FIRST. I think there is a 13mm bolt securing steering wheel to steering shaft.
