How to remove steering shaft?
As the title says, I'm stuck on how to get the steering shaft out. Everyone says its simple and straight forward. I like to think I'm fairly mechanically knowledgeable. Hell I rebuilt this car, but geez this has me lost. I've already loosened the pinch bolt at the rack. My problem is: Everywhere I look says remove the bolt on that shaft by the firewall. I'm guessing this means the engine bay side of the firewall. Well, there is no bolt on my engine bay side of the firewall before the u-joint. Just a black sleeve that runs through the firewall with a shaft running through it. Following this shaft into the cab it connects to another u-joint via pinch bolt and ultimately to the steering column. I have also removed the two nuts on the cab side of the firewall holding the plate on. But still to no avail.
Any and all help is appreciated.
