:yeah:theres a bolt that holds the two shafts of the steering column. unbolt it and pull them apart. Its kinda like a sleeve. do it from under the car.
I can't help you exactly but I can tell you what Tony said is true. Don't let your wheel go spinning around as you will damage the air bag clock spring and it will ruin your day.FROM THE DEPTHS!
I took the two bolts out of the linkage, but I was only able to move the collar/sleeve a tiny amount and it wasn't enough to get it apart. Am I doing it wrong? Any advice? Thanks in advance.
I have not done this particular task so I am not positive, but I think the deal with the steering is just a matter of not moving it. Those that have had trouble simply forgot the steering shaft was unbolted and moved the steering wheel getting in and out of the car. If that is the case, you'll being fine if you get the shaft loose, install the header, and immediately reattach the shaft.Darkman, I knew you had the goods.
Studying those PDFs, so there is a bolt under the rubber boot above the ujoint near the steering rack? I didn't move the boot when I was under there. Also, what can I stick in that hole under the steering wheel to lock it. Sadly my tool collection doesn't include a J42640 Steering Column Anti-Rotation Pin.
