when do you know when you have a bad steering column
gtx castrol 5w 30
On top of lower portion of steering column.
as far as I know, left side of the steering column. At least, on the column somewhere.
under the dash around the steering column area.
Most likely next to steering column. near dash board
Any steering column from a 1978-83 Chevy Malibu, 1978-87 El Camino, 1978-88 Monte Carlo could work, depending if it's a column or floor shift
Both. The Monte Carlo SS had a floor shifter (what I own), but the regular monte's had column shift
You will have to replace the switch that is under the top cover on the steering column, the steering wheel has to come off to get the cover off.
apparently the dimmer switch is bad in the steering column.
Top of the steering column, it pushes down and pops back up on the 2nd try.
It is serviced in the power steering reservior.jd
1995 Chevy Monte Carlo has front air bags and has special tools to remove them. It is about a 7 hour job to remove a dash from this vehicle but if you insist on doing this start with dropping the steering column.
Probably the high beam switch in the steering column is bad.
You're going to have to unbolt the steering column and drop it down. The ignition switch will be on the top of the column along with your high beam switch. Unbolt the switch then unplug it.
Disconnect the steering column from the power steering box in the engine compartment (there is a seal and it will not pull out easy). Remove the cover from underneath the steering column inside the car. Disconnect all wire connectors. There is a bracket underneath the column - remove the four bolts from it. There is s boot seal where the column goes through the firewall - it may also contains a bolt that wiil need to be removed. If it has a column shifter, you will need to disconnect this as well. Make sure when you slide the new steering column into the power steering box that the tires are straight and so is the steering wheel. If you forget, the steering wheel will not be straight while driving.
The flasher relay switch is located beneath the dashboard, on the drivers side. The flasher handle is located on the left hand side of the steering column.
No , the only compatibility for a 1970 Chevelle is a 69-72 Monte Carlo, Chevelle, El Camino... hope that helps...
77-85 Impala, 77-90 Caprice, 78-83 Malibu, 78-88 Monte Carlo/El Camino
Yes, most montes in 85 had the column gear shift.
