Default What is this on steering wheel?

There is a knob underneath the steering wheel that we have no idea what it is for. This is a 2000 1800SR. We can't seem to turn it left or right, but not sure if it is locked up or something. Any idea what this is?
Thanks,
Vicki

It allows you to adjust the wheel up or down. Try pulling or pushing on it.

I don't see any reason to need to grease it.

On my old 1990 2700SCR that knob was to used to set tension on the steering column. Worked perfect if you thought your steering needed a bit of tightening up.

So do you turn it left or right - (to tighten or loosen) because we tried that and it would not turn either way. We haven't tried pulling it or pushing it - we'll try that tonight.

I cannot tell on my iPad, itís either a tensioner that you would turn to increase or descrease tension on the wheel movement. Or itís a tilt that you pull towards you to release to tilt the column up and down.

Well, you cannot push or pull it. There are threads like it needs to twist left or right but it is stuck. Should we manhandle it and see if we can turn it? Updated photo below.
