    Theres a M10 nut in the inside of the steering pod that needs to be tightend down as you hold the latching pin.

    Thats my guess, as the nut appears to be on the top side of the steering column

    Take a mirror and a flashlight to see if you can even see the nut from inside the hull.

    Did you pull the rubber cap off the pin to see if you can tighten it up from the top??? The nut could possibly be locked on the inside by the housing

    Mine tightens from the top.. .can't get to it from the inside as least when it's on anyways. The top has a bolt around it and when you tighten it down it locks it into place. At least on the 07's it does.
