i`m not sure if its exactly the same, but in my Jeep there was just 4 bolts. two up under the dash, and two down where the column goes out through the firewall. disconnect whatever plugs are attached. get under the hood and there should be a bolt holding the steering shaft to the steering U-joint, take that out and the column should come right out
Go to www.painlessperformance.com and view the installation manual for part #30805 & 30806. It is a generic GM replacement harness with color codes.
Most GM veicles of that vintage are similar. Disconnect one of the battery terminals. Remove the horn button from the center of the steering wheel. It may be the type that pulls off or it may be the type that comes off with 2 screws on the back of the steering wheel. Pull the dust cover (if any) then remove the large nut in the center of the steering wheel. Note the orientation of the wheel so that you can get it back in the same place. The next step will require a steering wheel puller. They are relatively inexpensive, but you can also borrow one from many auto parts retailers. Use the puller to remove the steering wheel, then you should have access to the ignition switch mounting screws(s). Pull the screws and the ignition lock cylinder should come out easily.
take the front grill support off if the engine is in the car. then remove the plate covering the cam. then remove the cam?. it is alot easier with the engine on a stand.
To do this, first disconnect the battery so the air bag doesn't go off in your face. Remove the two machine screws behind the steering wheel that fasten the air bag to it. Lift off the air bag and disconnect the wires to it. Next you will need a special steering wheel tool to compress the strong tilt wheel spring. I'm not sure what parts might be broken in your car but they are fragile plastic parts that are available at the parts counter of your local GM dealer.
The gear mechanisms in the steering column may have busted.. also you can try to rotate the steering while,if this doesn't help do it with pair of pliers..got it?!no?!call a locksmith.... Locksmith reply: You can use the pliers to turn it back to the off position but the ignition will need to be replaced. It's pretty common on GM vehicles. Most the time it is just the lock itself that is causing the problem.
1984 CJ-7 Renegade Jeep
its in the steering column its in the steering column
YES you can.
At a GM dealer
If you use a GM steering column....many are interchangeable. Depending on the year, a column from an Impala or Chevelle may fit.
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.
the 1994 'burban steering column is generally the same as all GM light truck steering columns from previous years. Same tools, Same disassembly removal procedures
If the column has no key cylinder, just like any other column. If the key is lost/missing re-building the column will replace the cylinder.
In most GM vehicles it is below the steering column and to the left.
You have to remove the steering wheel ,lockplate, turn signal assembly and you will get to four bolts that are loose. Go to your local auto patrs store and tell them you need the special tool (lockplate removal tool and steering wheel puller)for GM steering colums.
In 80s jeep used some GM parts. a company called Ididit makes columns. What color do you need? I have a spare Tan one from a Grand Wagoneer
Check the electrical ignition switch on the bottom of the steering column.
