On the GM cars I've worked on, you have to remove the steering wheel. There is a vertical retaining bold/pin that has to be remove to allow the tumbler/key lock cylindar. Remove the wheel. Remove the retaining pin. Then remove the tumbler. Reverse the above to install the new one. Hope that helps.

How do you remove a steering column from 1984 Corvette?

The steering column is energy absorbing and is designed to compress in a front-end collision to minimize the possibility of an injury to the driver of the car. Once the steering column is removed from the car, the column is extremely susceptible to damage. Dropping the column on its end could collapse the steering shaft or loosen the plastic injections which maintain column rigidty. Leaning on the column assembly could cause the jacket to bend or deform. Any of the above could impair the column's collapsible design. Use a standard wheel puller and never hammer on the end of the shaft. # Disconnect the battery # Remove pinch bolt at universal coupling of intermediate shaft # Remove lower steering column attaching bolt on the dash & toe panel support # Remove 2 capsule bolts on instrument panel reinforcement assembly # Disconnect all electrical connectors from steering column # Remove steering column assembly

First you have to remove the panel from the bottom of the dash board to be able to get to the steering column bolts. Then, disconnect all of the wiring harnesses from the steering column. After this, go underneath the truck and disconnect the shifter linkage from the transmission. You can then remove the four bolts that hold the column up. Then, carefully slide the column out. Once the shifter linkage is against the firewall, rotate the column until you can pull the linkage through the opening in the firewall.
