I have worked on this same problem on a 1985 F100 and I'm sure the steering system is very similar. Take off all the pretty stuff on the outside of the steering wheel (horn buttons or horn ring) then you should be faced with a 11/16th to 3/4th nut. remove that nut and get a steering wheel puller (you can rent those at most auto parts houses for about $20.00. there is no replacement for having the right tool for the right job!) There will be holes that the steering wheel for the puller to be put in to. After you attach the puller to the wheel, take the middle bolt on the puller and tighten it until it makes contact with the bold on the steering column that you took the nut off of. You might have to hold the puller while you tighten the puller. After it makes contact, keep tightening until you feel the steering wheel POP off. Please resist the urge to try and use a hammer to take the steering wheel off and not use a steering wheel puller because it will never work (don't ask me how I know this!)

I hope this helps and much good luck!

HOW DO YOU REPLACE THE SHIFT INDICATOR? MINE STAYS IN PARK NO MATTER WHAT GEAR YOU PUT IT IN


First order a new one from a Ford dealer(about $40). Remove the lower dash panel under the steering wheel. remove the instrument trim panel.
Most of the time its just the mount on the steering column. if so remove the cable from the column, remove the wheel, insert the cable in the new bracket. when done shift the selector to drive and adjust. Start car run through gears and check again in drive.

I have a 1981 Corvette with tilt steering wheel. The steering wheel has started flopping like something is loose in the steering column. Whats going on? Thanks Jim


You must remove the steering cowl below the steering wheel and see what is loose, broken or worn. It more likely to be a loose bolt, in which case just tighten it and refit the cowl.
Hope that helps

89 Bronco, ignition spins freely, replaced ignition key lock with no results


It sounds like the rack is broken inside the column.The gears would bind from old,hard grease and cause the already thin pot metal rack to break.The steering wheel and the upper column has to come apart to replace the rack,brass gear and the actuator/gear.

Need to know how to pull out ignition switch for a 1984 ford bronco


If you can insert the key and turn it to the run position. Then look under the steering column where the key is you will see a hole in the plastic cover if you push the pin inside with a paper clip or pick of some sort then you should be able to pull the switch out. 
If you cant get to the pin then pull the lower cover from around the steering column where the switch is located it should have only (3) phillips screws holding it. 
Sorry if you get confused about the plastic cover around the steering wheel, can't remember if the 84's had that. But regardless on the underside of where the ignition switch is where you will find the pin hole.
Good luck and hope this helps.
