You'll need a specialized puller to remove it. You can fabricate one with a pair of vice grips and a regular gear puller.You attatch the gear puller to the back of the adapter and use the vice grips to hold the puller jaws together and slowly pull the adapter off.

Taking steering column


No,it unbolts at the box,one pinch bolt and a splined shaft.

1 Answer

Occasional bumping feeling in the steering column


I can think of one of two things:
Make sure your power steering fluid is full. My Bonneville was low, and it did some weird stuff.

But more likely it's your intermediate shaft. This shaft looks like a mini drive shaft with two miniture u-joints. It's located at the end of the steering column and passes thru the firwall. It's about 12 inches long. It has a slip spline that starts to not-slip, and you will feel a light thump in the steering wheel when turning. Sometimes thumps a little, sometimes alot.

There are several articles at the forum at: http://www.naioa.com/v2/modules.php?name=Forums

I decided to just pull my steering column on my 2002 Impala and lubricate the spline with regular grease.

0900c15280267f2b.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Lock cylinder drill point.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering wheel, then remove the steering column covers.
  3. Remove the turn signal and wiper switches.
  4. Disconnect the ignition switch wiring.
  5. On some models, the hole in the lock body for removing the ignition lock cylinder was not drilled by Volkswagen. To make the hole, use the following measurements in conjunction with the illustrations. Drill the hole where "a" and "b" intersect on the lock body. The hole should be drilled 0.19 inch (3mm) deep
  6. Remove the lock cylinder by pushing a small drill bit or piece of wire into the hole and pulling the cylinder out. It might be easier to insert the ignition key, turn it to the right a little and pull on it.

To install:
  1. Insert the lock cylinder into the housing with the key in the cylinder.
  2. While gently turning the key side-to-side, press the cylinder in to the stop. It should click into place.
  3. Temporarily fit the steering wheel onto the splines, then make sure the column locks and unlocks smoothly.
  4. Install the switches, column covers, wiring and the steering wheel.
  5. Connect the battery cable.

  2. Center the steering wheel.

  6. Remove the adapter sleeve from the steering column.
  7. Remove the spring and horn contact ring from the steering column assembly.
  8. Detach the sheer bolt.
  9. Insert the ignition key and unlock the cylinder, then detach the wiring connectors.
  10. Once all wiring has been detached, slide the housing off the steering column.
  11. Mark and drill the lock cylinder as shown and described in the above procedure.
  12. Compress the stop spring and pull the lock cylinder out of the steering column housing.
  13. Put the new lock cylinder into the steering lock housing.
  14. Insert the key into the lock cylinder.
  15. While you gently turn the key, insert the lock cylinder fully into the housing.
  16. The rest of the installation procedure is the reverse of removal.


NOTE Always use a new shear pin when installing the lock cylinder.

How do you get off the steering column of a 85 buick century


You really should use a steering wheel puller some folks hit it with a hammer but that is so not good!!
Wheel pullers are cheap enough a single 1/4" thick plate steel with a 3/8" hole drilled on each end, one hole may be slotted, the length is about 4 " and its about 1 " wide.

You must remove the horn cover to gain access to the steering wheels center nut(approx. 3/4 " hex nut) that locks the wheel onto a splined shaft.
Remove the 3/4 nut and mark the spline shaft to the steering wheel with a light tap of a punch just to identify how the wheel goes back on the spline when you are finished changing out the wheel.
If a vehicle has an air bag attachment in the horn cover you must remove the air bag fuse from the fuse panel before servicing the steering wheel area, it could go off that is a very dangerous accident if the air bag deploys while you are over the top of it working.
Happy Motoring!!

Steering wheel shaft is loose in column. I removed the steering wheel to replace ignition switch that went ok but when all back together, wheel has about a half inch of play all the way around.


Don't know exactly what you mean, but the steering wheel is tapered and has splines. You sort of wiggle it as you put it on, in order to ensure the splines line up. Then you tighten down the center nut. In which case it can't possibly wiggle.

Where are the splines on a steering column


splines on any shaft are used where two parts are joined together ie: your steering wheel is joined to the shaft by way of a spline. (serrated part of shaft that matches serrated receiver hole). In some cases there is no spline, but a flat is added instead which serves the same purpose of keeping the shaft from turning without turning the shaft it is attached to.
Some lower shaft joints can be either splined or use a flat. Be aware that some splines have a "locator" spline which essentially one fat spline that aligns with a wide spline groove in the receiver hole.
Most splines have a locking collar on them or a cross bolt that helps keep them together, except for the steering wheel that uses a nut on the top of the shaft.
Confused yet? Hope not!!!
Good luck!

I need to replace the rag joint at steering box of a 1976 Doge D100 truck. Can you give me any information on how to do it ?


first thing is to loosen the column mount at the fire wall inside where the column goes through the fire wall and also loosen the column support up next to the dash. so you can move the column up and down. at the rag joint remove the bolts that pass throught the leather dampner between the two pieces of metal one is clamped to the steering gear box shaft and the other is clamped to the steering column loosen the bolts that hold the pieces of the rag joint to the column and steering box. and remove each piece from the shafts. you may need a hammer depending on how rusty the are on the shafts. the steering gear box shaft is splined so when you install the new joint line up the splines so it will slip onto the shaft. a little WD40 sprayed on the shaft will help it slde on. then slide the column into the top part of the joint until it is seated. tighten the clamp nuts and torque to 40 ft Lbs each retighten the firewall clamp and the dash support and you are done.

97 ford f150 steering column bearings


There is a tool that presses the spring down to allow for the replacement of the clip. It is also used in the removal of the same spring and clip. This is if you are refering to the spring and clip that go on last, after your turn signal switch. If you are referring to the spring that goes around the spline, I would recommend finding a deep well socket of similar diameter than the spring, but big enough to allow the spline entry and use it to depress the spring fully bfore placing the clip
