I got the nut off the bolt, but the bolt won't budge. Dug out my Ford service manuals and they say to take the whole column out... screw that.@74stang2togo Did you remove the bolt? I've been sitting here thinking about it for a minute.... I think the bolt for the clamp mechanism actually locks onto the main steering shaft through a half-moon notch in said shaft. Seems like I struggled with that for a little while thinking all I had to do was loosen the bolt, but it come apart pretty easily once the bolt was removed - you know since it wasn't physically stopping the removal of the intermediate shaft....
I could be wrong and/or you could be done already! Better late than never - unless of course it's in this case!!
I dunno what vehicle this is from (looks like a Fox?), but this is what I'm talking about-
I'll be bringing some "persuasion" home from work for it.
