steering column removalto replace steering column: take lower cover off, then there is a bracket on the bottom of the column with four brass bolts in it, remove those. on that same bracket there are two metric nuts on either side of the column, remove those. now the column will drop. next remove the ignition switch and dimmer switch. now that u dropped the steering column you will have access to them. go ahead and remove three bolts from where the steering column meets the firewall(you will need to pull the carpet back a little). next pop the hood and locate the steering gear on the drivers sidetowards the front take ou the bolt holding in the shaft to the gearbox. and then the steering column should slip right out.
