Remove steering column


why not say reason.. ??? is the actual shaft bad,
or just swapping out the whole thing.> with igntion switch and combo switch?
the whole inside parts?
are you removing the steering wheel ?

first hard part is air bags, very dangerous.
and the coil spring, in wheel hub. easy to damage that.
first off major work , you need the FSM. why not get it and read it.

if no bags , good. easier.
the other issue is the
there are 3 critical steps.
1: Bags.
2: ignition switch assy, anthieft screws.
3: collapsible shaft, possible damage.
4: the steering wheel puller and steps. the FSM covers each separately.

wheel. quote
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and disable the air bag system.
  2. Set the front tires in a straight-ahead position.

  1. Remove the air bag module retaining nuts from behind the steering wheel.
  2. Remove the air bag module. Defeated first !!!!
  3. If equipped, remove the cruise control switch.
  4. Disconnect the horn wiring.
  5. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut.
  6. Scribe a line mark on the steering wheel and steering shaft if there is not one already.
  7. Remove the steering wheel using a suitable puller.
  8. the palm smacking trick can get the wheel off if lucky.
To install:
  1. To install, align the scribe marks on the steering shaft with the steering wheel.
  2. Ensure the wheel compresses the 2 locktabs on the clockspring.
  3. Pull the air bag and if equipped, cruise control wires through the larger hole and horn wire through the smaller hole. Ensure they are not pinched.
  4. Install the steering wheel nut and tighten it to 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm) while forcing the steering wheel down the shaft with the nut.
  5. Connect the wire feed to the horn buttons.
  6. Connect the feed wires and tighten the air bag retaining nuts to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm). Ensure the air bag is completely seated. The latching clip arms must be visible on top of the connector housing on the module.
  7. Enable the air bag system and connect the battery cable.
  8. From the right side of the vehicle (in case of accidental deployment), turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  9. Check for proper air bag warning light operation.
end quote, get the FSM. there are many more pages, for
the COMBO section, and shaft.

That is not the key part of the switch, it is the electruical switch the key cylinder operated.
Instructions
    • Set the front wheels to point forward and remove the key from the ignition.
    • 2Disconnect the black battery cable and then the red battery cable, in that order, using a wrench unfasten the two torx bolts securing the lower lid on the steering wheel using a ratchet and torx bit. Pull off the red shorting connector from the underside of the lid and put the lid aside.
  • 4Reach through the steering cover opening, unplug the air-bag electrical connector and insert the red shorting connector to the air bag side of the unplugged connector.
  • 5Unfasten the three glove-box mounting screws and put the glove box aside using a Phillips screwdriver.
  • 6Unplug the passenger air-bag electrical connector and insert the red shorting connector located next to the connector into the air-bag side of the unplugged connector.
  • 7Pry off the small cover behind and on each side of the steering wheel using a small flat-head screwdriver.
  • 8Unfasten the torx bolts under the small covers using a ratchet and a T30 torx bit and remove the bag assembly from the steering wheel. Place the bag in a safe place away from your working area with the cover facing up.
  • 9Unplug the horn connector located on the upper side of the steering wheel assembly and the cruise control switch located off center and towards the right of the steering wheel assembly.
  • 10Make alignment marks on the steering column shaft, at the center of the steering wheel, and the steering wheel assembly so that you can reinstall the steering wheel in the same exact position. Use a marker.
  • 11Unfasten the steering-wheel retaining nut on the center of the assembly using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Hold the steering wheel steady with one hand as you remove the retaining nut.
  • 12Rock the steering wheel carefully from side to side as you pull the wheel off the center shaft. If the steering wheel is stuck, install a steering wheel puller on the assembly and detach the wheel from the shaft.
  • 13Remove the upper and lower steering column covers using a Phillips screwdriver.
  • 14Unplug the ignition switch connector.
  • 15Insert the key into the lock cylinder and turn the key to the "On" position.
  • 16Unfasten the two ignition-switch mounting bolts from the steering column using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Then remove the switch from the steering column

    The serpentine belt on my 1984 Buick Lesabre keeps breaking when turn on air conditioner or heater why?


    Most likely you have a seized AC compressor. When you ask for AC or heat the AC clutch engages with the pulley wheel that normally spins freely when the AC is off. As the pulley wheel is no longer able to turn because of the seized compressor the belt will either slip or snap.

    I'd say $125.00 is a good price for a steering column.

    First, have to remove steering wheel (but I don't have instructions for the steering column. For that, maybe try alldata.com, but that will cost):

    STEERING Steering Wheel REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Without Air Bag EXCEPT F-SUPER DUTY STRIPPED CHASSIS MODELS AND MOTOR HOME CHASSIS MODELS Fig. 1: Remove the screws from behind the wheel - F-150 model without air bag 88288p12.jpg
    Fig. 2: Pull away the cover with the wiring still connected 88288p13.jpg
    Fig. 3: Disconnect the wiring at the steering wheel 88288p14.jpg
    Fig. 4: Matchmark the steering wheel 88288p15.jpg
    Fig. 5: Remove the center nut from the steering wheel 88288p16.jpg
    Fig. 6: Use a steering wheel puller to remove the wheel 88288p17.jpg
    Fig. 7: Remove the steering wheel from the shaft 88288p18.jpg
    Fig. 8: Correct steering wheel installation 84928058.gif
    NOTE: The factory recommends that the front wheels be set in the straight-ahead position and you paint or make chalk marks on the column and steering wheel hub for alignment purposes during installation. Of these two safeguards, it is more important to mark the column so even if the column is moved slightly, the steering wheel can still be repositioned in its original position.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the one screw from the underside of each steering wheel spoke, and lift the horn switch assembly (steering wheel pad) from the steering wheel. On vehicles equipped with the sport steering wheel option, pry the button cover off with a suitable prytool.
    3. Disconnect the horn switch wires at the connector and remove the switch assembly. On trucks equipped with speed control, squeeze the J-clip ground wire terminal firmly and pull it out of the hole in the steering wheel. Don't pull the wire out without squeezing the clip.
    4. Remove the horn switch assembly.
    5. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut and remove the steering wheel with a puller. WARNING
      Never hammer on the wheel or shaft to remove it! Never use a knock-off type puller.
    6. Install the steering wheel in the reverse order of removal. Tighten the shaft nut to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm)
    F-SUPER DUTY STRIPPED CHASSIS MOTOR HOME CHASSIS MODELS
    1. Set the front wheel in the straight-ahead position and make chalk marks on the column and steering wheel hub for alignment purposes during installation.
    2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    3. Remove the one screw from the underside of each steering wheel spoke, and lift the horn switch assembly (steering wheel pad) from the steering wheel.
    4. Disconnect the horn switch wires at the connector and remove the switch assembly.
    5. Remove the horn switch assembly.
    6. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut and remove the steering wheel with a puller. WARNING
      Never hammer on the wheel or shaft to remove it! Never use a knock-off type puller.
    7. Install the steering wheel in the reverse order of removal. Tighten the shaft nut to 30-42 ft. lbs. (41-57 Nm).
    With Air Bag Fig. 9: Remove the air bag module and disconnect the wiring harnesses 88288g00.gif
    CAUTION
    Read the air bag service precautions in Section 6 prior to doing work involving an air bag equipped steering column component. Always wear safety glasses when servicing an air bag vehicle and handling the air bag to avoid possible injury.
    1. Turn the front wheels to the straight-ahead position.
    2. Disconnect the battery-to-starter relay cable for at least one minute to let the air bag back-up power supply discharge.
    3. Remove the air bag module from the steering wheel (refer to Section 6).
    4. Disconnect the horn/speed control wiring from the steering wheel.
    5. Remove the steering wheel retaining bolt.
    6. Install the Differential Bearing Cone Remover/Replacer, No. T77F-4220B1, or equivalent, and remove the steering wheel. Route the contact assembly harnesses through the steering wheel as it is lifted off of the shaft. To install: NOTE: Make sure the front wheels are still in the straight-ahead position prior to installation.
    7. Route the air bag sliding contact wiring through the steering wheel at the 3 o'clock position. Position the steering wheel on the shaft an align the marks. Make sure not to pinch the contact wire. WARNING
      Make sure no air gets trapped between the steering wheel and air bag sliding contact.
    8. Install a new steering wheel retaining bolt, then tighten to 23-33 ft. lbs. (31-45 Nm).
    9. Connect the horn/speed control wiring and clip in place. Connect the air bag wire harness. Tighten the module retaining nuts to 35-53 inch lbs. (4-6 Nm). NOTE: When the battery cable has been disconnected, then reconnected, some abnormal driving symptoms may occur for the first 10 miles (16 km) until the PCM re-learns it adaptive strategy.
    10. Connect the battery to starter cable. Verify the air bag warning indicator light on the instrument panel.
