SOURCE: how to take off steering wheel.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
If necessary for access or service remove the steering wheel. Except for on 1967-69 simulated wood wheels, be sure to use a steering wheel puller.
  1. Remove the nut/bolt from the upper intermediate shaft coupling, then separate the coupling from the lower end of the steering column.
  2. If equipped with a column mounted shifter, disconnect the transmission control linkage from the column shift tube levers.
  3. If equipped with a floor shifter, disconnect the backdrive linkage.
  4. Disengage all of the electrical connectors from the steering column assembly.
  5. Remove the floor pan cover-to-floor screws, the floor seal, and the cover.
  6. Remove the steering column bracket-to-instrument panel nuts and carefully lower the column. If equipped with an automatic transmission, disconnect the shift position indictor pointer.
Once the steering column has been removed from the vehicle, be careful not to drop it (especially on it's end), lean on it or damage it in any way; the column is very susceptible to damage.
  1. Remove the column from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the steering column in the vehicle. If equipped with an automatic transmission, connect the shift position indicator pointer.
  2. Raise the column into position, then install the column bracket-to-instrument panel nuts and tighten to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
  3. Install the floor pan seal and cover, then secure using the retaining screws.
  4. Engage all of the electrical connectors to the steering column assembly.
  5. If equipped with a floor shifter, connect the backdrive linkage.
  6. If equipped with a column mounted shifter, connect the transmission control linkage to the column shift tube levers.
  7. Connect the intermediate shaft coupling to the lower end of the steering column, then secure using the nut/bolt.
  8. If removed for access or service, align the matchmarks and install the steering wheel.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.

Good luck..

There should be a button inside the column that you push in, or a bolt to remove, been awhile since I did one. You may need to have the key in the lock cylinder and turn the lock cylinder.

How do I remove the ignition switch from a winnebago lesharo


Instructions depend on whether it's on a dodge, ford or chevvy chassis. If the steering wheel is a tilt wheel. special tools will be necessary to get to the key cylinder. Go to an auto parts store and pick up a manual for whatever chassis you have and the same year. It will have instructions on getting the steering wheel off and getting the key cylinder out.

there is a rod or rack inside the steering column that pulls back on the ignition switch. the ignition switch is bad or the rod is bent from tilt steering if the wheel is slammed up. on the otherhand the switch may be right inside the colum attatched to the ignition tumbler> either way it is an ignition swithc problem.

My turn signals don't work on a 2000 ford


If you have tilt steering,after a while wires in colum tend to cut in half when tilting up and down. Not to complicated to fix. Take apart colum by removing the three screws underneath,philips(star screwdriver) then unscrew the handle that tilts the strring,you will see a flat part to the rod,,,then remove plastic that suronds the colum,all clip ons.Take a pointy tool or nail will do,put the key in the ignition,you will see a hole underneath the key cylinder,push in and the whole baril with key will come out.Now you can remove both plastics covering colum and the problem should be odvious,,,,,Be patient and enjoy your fix.

Steering column loose and causes auto to stall and jump out of gear when steering wheel moves.


There are 3 tilt colum screws deep inside the colum, it's common for them to come loose and eventually cause wiring problems. special tools are required to thighten the torx head screws.

Used colums for that year are cheap however.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle


sounds like the key is either worn down to where the ridges in the key wont push the tumblers inside the key lock cylinder into their proper place to move the cylinder into the starting position. Or your steering colum is locked and the wheel is moving freely as if it were not. So your solution would be to either have an expert look at it (estimated cost: 200$ low/400$high) or you can attempt to fix it yourself.
should you choose the "I'll fix it myself" method....try getting a new key made at a hardware store since keys wearout over time (ie:10years of turning that old key), this may solve the problem right away if the ridges are just worn on the key. Or the hard way, you need to get a phillips screwdriver and some jewelers tools and an 8mm or 10mm wrench/rachet+socket to disconnect the battery, then underneath the steering colum just under the ignition is a hole in the colum shroud/cover, from there you can disconnect the ignition key lock cylinder (the thing you put your key into). once you've removed the cylinder from the steering colum you should test your key again to see if you can turn the cylinder outside of the colum if you cannot then buy a new ignition key lock cylinder for about 15$-30$...problems solved.

Yes, it will fit.Years that fit are 89 to 94.Appearance may be different it steering wheel between a chev or gmc,but wiring should be a exact fit.Other differences in columns are column shift(auto)w/tilt or w/out tilt wheel or floor shift(standard)w/tilt or w/out.

How to remove the key and lock ingnition on a 1999 chevy cavilier


Detach the negative battery terminal and disable the airbag system if you have it. Remove the steering wheel. To do that remove the clip and the large nut and then use a steering wheel puller. (You will need to buy or rent a steering wheel puller They can be found at most auto parts stores) Remove the turn signal switch assembly. Place the lock cylinder in the run position. Remove the turn signal switch housing screws. If you have tilt steering column you will need to remove the pivit pins on the sides of the tilt housing. (you will need a pivit pin puller which can be found at an auto parts store). Pull the buzzer switch out (make sure you note how this is correctly replaced. If done wrong the buzzer will stay on....it is a little plastic piece with two wires). Turn the lock cylinder to Accessory. Remove the lock cylinder screw which is by the buzzer switch you just removed. Remove the lock cylinder.
