Steering column rebuild questions

Does anybody have a good diagram or pics of the upper bearing retainers and spring. Mine looks worn and it appears like the upper spring and retainer clip are rubbing on the plastic piece that cuts off the blinker.

I also have a little bit of play in the wheel and thought I may replace the bearings in the upper part of the column. It is a tilt column.

I looked at it real good but it befuzzles me how it comes apart. Does anybody have the instructions? Diagrams would help too.

I know most people just replace the column but I want to fix it.

Thanks Guys,
Neal


P.S. PM me if you want

WOW, Ask and ye shall recieve!

I am only interested in the upper bearing and what I need to replace it.
I am most interested in the location where you need to use the "fabricated" tool.

On mine the spring appears to have a washer under it. The spring is worn down and is flat on the bottom of it now. On the top side of the spring there is the clip and the spring rubs on it. The clip also rubs on the plastic piece that has 4 tabs around it and is used to turn off the blinker. QUESTION: How do I remove this plastic piece that clicks off the blinker. It is located where the "fabricated" tool is located in the picture.



Thanks guys. This is awesome info. Rick did you rebuild yours ? I may want to talk to you on the phone if so.

Rick, the ones that are colored in the first picture are the ones I think I need. I just can't zoom too close on that one, the resolution is not good when I copy it. Is there any way you can e-mail that one to me?

BTW I have a manual so I don't need anything for the shifter selector.

Thanks again guys.

I tried to rep you Rick. but they are *******s on the rep system around here.

Isn't that the way it pretty much is with our forum? We can never rep.

I tried to appeal this, but i wasn't successful. \=
