Not a hard column to remove. Make sure the steering wheel is straight. take off the airbag and then the center bolt holding the steering wheel to the column. Go under the vehicle and disconnect the column from the rack. Ensure the rack is in approximately the center position. Remove plastic trim under drivers side dash, remove instrument cluster. remove combination switch (turn signals etc). Disconnect all electrical connectors. unbolt steering column and pull out of vehicle. The only problem you may run into is if your replacing the entire column you will have to switch over your igntion lock. A special tool is required to switch it over.
