How do you remove the steering column off of a 1994 Chevy Beretta?

Remove the lower dash panel and steering column cover. Disconnect all harnesses going to the column. There is a metal bracket attached to the steering column with brass-colored bolts, and attached to the underside of the dash with chrome-colored bolts. Remove only the chrome bolts. They're fairly long. Once completely removed, the entire steering column will drop slightly. Now pull back the plastic boot from the bottom of the steering column and look for the small bolt securing it in place. I believe it is 11mm. Loosen the bolt only enough for the column to slide out.

How do you remove neutral safety switch on a 1967 Chevelle?

It is located on the steering column. The same switch usually controls the backup lights as well. It is under the dash. Two screws attach it to the steering column. It is a LOT easier to get to it if you loosen the column and drop it down, but you CAN get to it with the column in place. Make sure it is properly adjusted when you reinstall it if you want your car to start though.

How do you remove the airbag on a 1995 Ford Escort wagon 1.9 in order to replace the gas gauge light?

You shouldn't have to remove the airbag in order to replace the gas gauge light. The steering column is held up by a couple of retaining bolts. Remove these bolts and the steering column will lower enough that instrument panel will come out easier. The steering column won't drop to the floor when you do this but will hang in midair. If you have a tilt wheel, you might have to adjust the wheel tilt to allow the panel to come out easier. Don't forget to remove the steering column cover though.

Remove the dress plate under the steering column. There is a clip there for the shift indicator, if you shift on the column. There are two nuts on studs, one on each side of the column, remove these nuts, and the steering column will drop down. The switch is on top of the column just lower then the fastening bracket. Unplug the wiring, remove the screws that retain the switch, install new one and adjust. Put everything back together.


How do you replace the ignition switch on a 1969 impala?

The ignition switch is attached to the stearing column, below the dashboard. You will need to drop the column, but don't forget to disconnect the little cable that operates the gear indicator first, or it will break when you drop the column and it will not be an easy repair. The switch is held on by two screws and operates from a rod that travels front to back along the steering column, changing the position of the ignition slide switch.
