If I understand you correctly, you are trying to reverse the sign on a column of numeric data in Excel. You should be able to use a formula in your results column (Column C?) that looks like this: =(A1*-1) That formula should reverse the sign of the values in column A.

Tools Required

ā¢ J 41352 Modular Column Holding Fixture

### Removal Procedure

Warning! Refer to SIR Caution in Cautions and Notices.
Caution! The wheels of the vehicle must be straight ahead and the steering column in the LOCK position before disconnecting the steering column or intermediate shaft from the steering gear. Failure to do so will cause the SIR coil assembly to become uncentered, which may cause damage to the coil assembly.
Caution! Once the steering column is removed from the car, the column is extremely susceptible to damage. Dropping the column on its end could collapse the steering shaft or loosen the plastic injections which maintain column rigidity. Leaning on the column could cause the jacket to bend or deform. Any of the above damage could impair the column's collapsible design. If it is necessary to remove the steering wheel, use only the specified steering wheel puller. Under no conditions should the end of the shaft be hammered upon as hammering could loosen plastic injections which maintain column rigidity.
1. Disable the SIR system. Refer to SIR Disabling and Enabling Zone 3 in SIR.

2. Insert J 42640 into the steering column access hole in order to lock the steering column. This will maintain the correct orientation.
3. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.

4. Remove the intermediate shaft lower pinch bolt.
5. Remove the intermediate shaft from the steering gear.
6. Lower the vehicle.

7. Remove the knee bolster. Refer to Bracket Replacement - Knee Bolster in Instrument Panel, Gages and Console.
8. Disconnect the steering column wiring harness connector from the main body wiring harness.
9. Disconnect the shift lever cable from the linear shift assembly.

10. Remove the shift cable retaining clip.

11. Press the shift cable tabs (1) together and remove the shift cable (2) from the steering column.

12. Caution! The steering column should never be supported only by the lower support bracket. Damage to the lower support could result.
Important Stabilize the studs in order to remove the nuts securing the steering column to the instrument panel.
13. Support the column.

14. Remove the lower steering column retaining nuts.
15. Remove the upper steering column retaining nuts.
16. Important Discard the clips at the upper steering column support, if equipped. These clips are for assembly plant usage only.
17. Remove the steering column from the vehicle.
