sierra steering columb strip down

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





I'd love to give my imaginary friend a great big hug,

but this jacket makes it impossible.

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.
