There are three bolts under everything that you see. The steering wheel comes off first,then the retainer ring has to come off(it's on the same steem that the wheel is on,there is a tool for that). There is a plate with slots in it that will come off. Pull everything else out carefuly as not to lose any screws or break any wires, and you should see the three screws in a triangle formation. Tightin them & reasemble.

yes it is one big nut, however it looks like 4 individual nuts due to the fact that they are a thinly stacked layer or thin nuts held together by what you called the tab washer............only way to replace is to get a new one from ford........
