    then why dont you just pull the whole thing?

    two bolts on the coller on the fire wall, two under the dash, and 4 or 5 around the collum where it gose through the fire wall , it will pull out. and you dont need to take it apart.

    okay I went out there and got 6 bolts off, there are some smaller bolts around the steering colum, holding this unpainted piece of metal to the firewall, do I take these off too? What other ones do I take off? /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    yeah thas is atached to the collum so the little bolts arount the collum has to go, as well as two in the engen compartment on the fire wall there is a little coller, and two under the collum under the dash, make sure you get rid of the dash stuff under it and remove the piece between the box and collum /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    you know i was thinking you could have pulled the cab off with the collum in right?

    the saft that goes from the collum to the box disconects and you could have left it in. ahwell another lesson learned eh? /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
