Question about 1992 Chevrolet Camaro
We did the same on a '89 model so it should be similar. The column is not very heavy but as you are unbolting it you will want to find a way to support the column at the steering wheel end. Disconnect the negative battery cable before starting and if there is a steering wheel airbag you should have that disabled before starting the removal process.
Start by unbolting the column from the steering box, if you are reinstalling the same column mark the column and the shaft/plate of the steering box with chalk so that you can easily reinstall it in the same place. The column has two supports inside the car, you will need to remove the lower dash trim pieces and possibly part of the instrument panel. Release all of the column wiring connectors, most of which are also clipped to the column in some fashion. The first support is at the floor, pull back the carpeting and you will see the support plate, ours had studs rather than bolts so we removed the corresponding fasteners from under the hood. The second support is under the dash near the lower edge and is simply unbolted. At this point the column should be completely loose, the next issue is getting it out. You may find some interference with the brake and or clutch pedals. Slide the driver seat back as far as possible, if the seat reclines that would be helpful. Hopefully you will now have enough room to pull the column straight back and out. The assistance of a helper would be useful at this point too. As mentioned before, the column is not heavy but it can be cumbersome to get it out of the car. Installation is just the reverse. Let me know if this helps you out or not.
