The replacement of a steering column is easier than you think, and you can do it without a book or diagrams. First, head off to your favorite junkyard and scout up a truck that is similar to yours in year, make and model. This way, you are assured to have a piece that slips right in. Take the column out of the junker before you try to take the one out of your truck. Open the hood and you will see the column shaft just sitting there, and separate the column from the steeering box. Typically, it can be a slip joint with a single bolt to tighten it up on the steering box shaft, but you could also see a canvas/rubber flex joint with four bolts coupling the shaft components. You might have to squirt the bolts with panther **** (WD 40, etc.) in order to get 'em loose. Under the dash, you'll see a long flat plugin for the wiring harness that comes from the bottom side of the column. Unplug that and remove the cover under the dash that hides the two nuts that hold the steering column mounting yoke. Pull back the carpet at the spot on the floor where the column goes throiugh, and you will see a rubber gasket of sorts that has four or five small screws holding it to the floor. If a part of the wiring harness is in the way of you dropping the column down and out, look for the plugin that connects it and get it out of the way. DO NOT PULL VERY HARD ON THE WIRES! If the truck didn't have tilt wheel when you bought it, you can get a tilt column out of the junker that can make your day a bit brighter. Remove the column out of the junker, first. Experience is always the best teacher, and the junker will show you how to go about putting the replacement column in your truck. If the truck has an automatic tranny shifter on it, all you have to do is pull a pin from the column, directly in front of the truck's firewall. I have done numerous column swaps and have never needed a book or diagram to do it, and neither will you. If a man can build it, another man can generally fix it or replace it. Remember to start out with the junker, first and foremost, and you can count on the job taking you (as a first timer) about two to two and a half hours. Take your time, pay attention, use your good eye, and enjoy yourself. Ain't nothin' scary about this job. Relax. The truck will actually show you what it take and how to do it.

My brake lites stay on all the time on my 2005 chev 1500 silverado, even if i take the brake light switch out. Is it the switch?

it may be the brake light switch. have you tryed making the connection manually? or is it the 'e' brake switch staying on? try pulling up on the emergency brake pedal to insure the "e" brake switch is'nt bad before you replace a suspected bad brake light switch on the steering column. if you suspect a bad brake light switch,pull up on the brake pedal and look to insure the brakelight swich disenguages itself,it may only need adjusted.the plunger may be loose. or the plugin may be loose. if not any of these,then i suggest you replace the brake light switch on the steering column,at bottom,near floorboard,on the steering column itself.

Electrical switch in steering post .reset 3x Lost head lights and directional lights Looking for electrical diagram with pictures for this problem. Subaru legacy wagon 1991 Thank you

I haven't been able to find schematics free online.Some local libraries carry haynes or chilton repair manuals to look at.You could go to a national auto parts store and "thumb through" one(bring pen and paper).If all those lights are controlled by a column that sticks out from the steering wheel,I would say you probably need to take apart the steering column a little,and maybe try buying a used stick from a salvage yard if one is nearby.Let me know what you find out please. Good luck! Greg

This problem is very common, your best bet is to go to the nearest junk yard and look for a new column. The amount of work needed to try to get into that u joint isn't worth it and matching up the u joint at your local parts store can be a nightmare. Swapping out the column is a twenty minute job. I grabbed a column from a GMC and just swapped the horn button from my chevy, you'd never know it wasn't orginal.
