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.
