In a nut shell:

Jack up the front of the car so the front wheels are off the ground.

Remove the oil fill and make sure it has oil. 90W GL1 is what I used.

Remove the cover cap/bolt from the adjuster. Remove that large lock/star washer. Turn until you just feel resistance. Put the star washer back on. It probably won't line up, so the back the adjuster out enough until the star washer seats and locks the adjuster in place. The front wheels should turn the instant the steering wheel does. That dead space in the wheel should be gone/minimal. If not, you can try to adjust on more star notch.

When happy, put the cover cap back on to lock the starwasher in place.

Take for a drive.

You just don't want it too tight. So if it now feels like it's binding, then you need to loosen it a bit.
