    Steering Column Removal?

    Ok, I am about to tacle a steering column swap. I looked into the engine bay and had a question, thanks Haynes.

    There seems to be only one small bolt in the engine bay that connects the steering column to the rest of the steering knuckle shaft thingy.

    Is this easily removed? With the steering wheel centered the bolt head points up right at me. I felt behind there an couldn't tell what is on the back side.

    Is pulling the steering column as simple as the two under dash bolts, three interior floor bolts and this one lonely engine bay bolt?

    Will that engine bay bolt come off easy? BIG question, what is the torque spec on all of these bolts? Haynes has let me down.


    thanks

    Once you start taking it apart, you will realize how easy it is.

    Torque specs? Use your best judgement.
