The top yoke needs to come off as the switch is held in with security shear-bolts that have to be drilled out (unless you can get a centre-punch or sharp/hard screwdriver on the edge of the sheared off head in which case try tapping bolts anti-clockwise with a hammer
Good Luck

    I need to remove the air bag on a 2002 buick regal. i can't see how to unclip or unbolt the air bag. any suggestions


    I believe that there are 2, 3, or 4 screws holding the bag assembly to the steering wheel. You can remove the screws from the back of the steering wheel. Be careful handling the airbag. Be sure to disconnect the battery completely, take the battery out of the car.

    Need to replace the entire ignition how to remove the steering out of the way


    Ignition Switch - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    (see Figure 1)
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the lower column trim panel, then remove the steering column-to-instrument panel fasteners and carefully lower the column for access to the switch.
    3. Place the ignition switch in the OFF-LOCK position.
    If the lock cylinder was removed on vehicles through 1991, the actuating rod should be pulled up until it stops, then moved down one detent; the switch is now in the Lock position.


    zjlimited_463.jpg

    Fig. 1: Adjusting the ignition switch

    1. Remove the ignition switch-to-steering column retainers, then remove the assembly.
    To install:
    1. Before installing the ignition switch, place it in the OFF-LOCK position, then make sure that the lock cylinder and actuating rod are in the Locked position (1st detent from the top or 1st detent to the right of far left detent travel).
    Most replacement switches are pinned in the OFF-LOCK position for installation purposes. If so, the pin MUST be removed after installation or damage may occur.
    1. Install the activating rod into the ignition switch and assemble the switch onto the steering column. Once the switch is properly positioned, tighten the ignition switch-to-steering column retainers to 35 inch lbs. (4.0 Nm).
    When installing the ignition switch, use only the specified screws since over length screws could impair the collapsibility of the column.
    1. Raise the column into position and secure, then install any necessary trim plates.
    2. Make sure the ignition is OFF , then connect the negative battery cable.


    Ignition Lock Cylinder - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    (see Figure 1)
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Matchmark and remove the steering wheel.
    3. Remove the turn signal switch from the column and allow it to hang from the wires (leaving them connected). For details, please refer to the procedure located earlier in this section.
    4. For vehicles through 1991, place the lock cylinder in the Run position.
    5. For 1992-93 vehicles, remove the buzzer switch assembly.
    zjlimited_464.jpg

    Fig. 1: Ignition cylinder replacement

    1. Carefully remove the lock cylinder screw and the lock cylinder. If possible, use a magnetic tipped screwdriver on the screw in order to help prevent the possibility of dropping it.
    CAUTION If the screw is dropped upon removal, it could fall into the steering column, requiring complete disassembly in order to retrieve the screw and prevent damage.
    To install:
    1. Align and install the lock cylinder set. On vehicles through 1991 it will be necessary to rotate the switch clockwise to align the cylinder key with the keyway in the housing.
    2. Push the lock cylinder all the way in, then carefully install the retaining screw. Tighten the screw to 22 inch lbs. (2.5 Nm) on tilt columns or to 40 inch lbs. (4.5 Nm) on standard non-tilt columns.
    3. If necessary, install the buzzer switch assembly.
    4. Reposition and secure the turn signal switch assembly
    5. Align and install the steering wheel.
    6. Make sure the ignition is OFF , then connect the negative battery cable.
