how easy is it to remove the shaft from the tube ??
which way out does it slide and do i have to remove the tube from the car to pull the shaft ??
its a mk1 non adjustable one
want to machine the wheel end to accept a removable boss
The inner column comes out from the top (steering wheel end). It's a while since I touched mine but I think the retaining caps are simple
push-in items but the outer may be peened over (?) and need a little persuasion.
Hopefully this link shows the constituent parts sierra column
Inner shaft comes out from the bottom of the main tube. Undo the steering wheel (nut on the mk1, Bolt on a mk2) and the shaft will come out of the
bottom. As per pic in the link.
Take care with the springs and bushes.
thanks for that....
will have a go sometime in the next 6 months!
