Should be a pinch bolt at either end. Unbolt one, compress the slip joint, unbolt the other and pull it out. Do Not rotate steering wheel with shaft out. You can brake your clockspring wires in the steering column. Mark the orientation of the shaft ends to get the new one in exactly the same way. Some models can be really hard to access. Seperating the subframe and body may be necessary. Removing the steering column may be necessary.

Yes I have an 89 Ford F250 truck steering wheel will go around and around and around but the tires will not move what could be the problem

Maybe the steering shaft is broken? You can look under the hood, where the steering shaft connects to the steering box, see if it moves. You may be able to get another steering shaft from salvage yard, if that is the problem?

Just replaced the gear box and steering coupling kit. but it still has a little play but not as much as before

it could be the knuckle on the steering shaft that runs between the gear box and the steering collumn I just had to replace that on my Dakota. You will probably have to find one from a salvage yard though, unless you don't mind getting raped by the dealership.

The steering wheel adjustment lever is broken

using a small pair of vise-grips, lock onto the shaft (what is left of it) and unscrew it from the steering column-you can get one at the dealer, but a junk yard shaft is a lot cheaper and they are everywhere.

Cae was stolen and recovered. they broke the ignition. how do I replace the steering column Is it necessary to replace the entire column?


I am sure this would work by just replacing the ignition switch, not the entire steering column.

However it also depends on how bad was it broken.

Please let us know for future assistance.
