Remove steering column cover 300m chrysler 1999


Hi Trevor, I'm glad to help!

The Steering Column Cover is held by 3 screws mounted upward and you reach them through the access holes from under the column. Some are Phillip's head screws and some are torx screws. Once the screws are out remove the top cover first, then the under cover next. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Trevor.

How to remove top plate on steering column the flasher switch is on top and to fix the problem i have to remove the steering column. i can not get the top of the steering column off.


there are a couple of screws that hold the lower part of the cover to the upper part. Remove those and remove the lower cover. There will then be two male torx screws that hold the upper cover in place just behind the steering wheel (look up under the column and you should see them on either side of the column). Once those two are removed the upper cover will come off.
