I thought I would tackle an “easy” project with a few days of rain coming up so started taking apart the steering column and thought I had things well in hand until it was time to remove the turn signal assembly. The e type video I saw the turn signal assembly came off with little fuss however I’m stymied as to how to get any farther from this point (picture).
Shop manual has me as step 1 remove the radiator.
did a great job of describing the process however I can not seem manage this step
7.Unscrew and remove the metal clamp which retains the turn signal
are two screws on this clamp, and they use some oddly shaped washers to
grip the ring. Do not lose these.
8.Unscrew the ‘plug’ which keeps the upper column from sliding out
of the center
column. This plug should be hand tight, so no tools. Do not lose this plug.
Slide out the upper shaft and the shaft retainer.
