Does anyone know how or know of a website I can check out to remove a steering column out of a 1978 Ford Ranchero GT? Mine busted & I'm having problem getting out...appreciate some help
yeah, man...I'll find a U-tube for you---tube~

it's quite straight forward and simple. The column is held up by 4 big studs that are attached to the big metal bracket under the column under the dash. Loosen up those 4 nuts on those studs and the column will fall down, now all you have to do is disconnect the turn signal switch wiring harness which has a half moon shaped plug on the end of it, then under the hood the shaft connects to a rag-joint which is a round piece of rubber(made from part of a tire). There are 4 7/16" nuts that need to be removed from there and then just lift and pull the column up and out. You should be able to access pics of the column in a Chilton's Ford 1975-78 ( not Haynes) repair manual available at your local library. or you can checkout this article with pics on a '67 Fairlane as it's basically the same R&R procedure here at . http://www.mustangandfords.com/techarticles/suspension/mdmp_1006_1967_ford_fairlane_flaming_river_steering_box_kit/photo_19.html Good Luck, Kenny/MrBlueOval
