How to remove steering column on a 2005 Buick LeSabre


Steering Column Replacement Hope this helps?

Tools Required

• J 42640 Steering Column Lock Pin
• J 41352 Modular Column Holding Fixture

Removal Procedure

    Warning! Refer to SIR Caution in Cautions and Notices.
    Caution! The wheels of the vehicle must be straight ahead and the steering column in the LOCK position before disconnecting the steering column or intermediate shaft from the steering gear. Failure to do so will cause the SIR coil assembly to become uncentered, which may cause damage to the coil assembly.
    Caution! Once the steering column is removed from the car, the column is extremely susceptible to damage. Dropping the column on its end could collapse the steering shaft or loosen the plastic injections which maintain column rigidity. Leaning on the column could cause the jacket to bend or deform. Any of the above damage could impair the column's collapsible design. If it is necessary to remove the steering wheel, use only the specified steering wheel puller. Under no conditions should the end of the shaft be hammered upon as hammering could loosen plastic injections which maintain column rigidity.
  1. Disable the SIR system. Refer to SIR Disabling and Enabling Zone 3 in SIR.



  2. Insert J 42640 into the steering column access hole in order to lock the steering column. This will maintain the correct orientation.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.



  4. Remove the intermediate shaft lower pinch bolt.
  5. Remove the intermediate shaft from the steering gear.
  6. Lower the vehicle.



  7. Remove the knee bolster. Refer to Bracket Replacement - Knee Bolster in Instrument Panel, Gages and Console.
  8. Disconnect the steering column wiring harness connector from the main body wiring harness.
  9. Disconnect the shift lever cable from the linear shift assembly.



  10. Remove the shift cable retaining clip.



  11. Press the shift cable tabs (1) together and remove the shift cable (2) from the steering column.



  12. Caution! The steering column should never be supported only by the lower support bracket. Damage to the lower support could result.
    Important Stabilize the studs in order to remove the nuts securing the steering column to the instrument panel.
  13. Support the column.



  14. Remove the lower steering column retaining nuts.
  15. Remove the upper steering column retaining nuts.
  16. Important Discard the clips at the upper steering column support, if equipped. These clips are for assembly plant usage only.
  17. Remove the steering column from the vehicle.
  18. Install the steering column into J 41352 .

    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..
