    I have a steering knock and i was wondering how one goes to replace the lower steering column bearing. I thought that you could take the Intermediate steering shaft and then pull the bearing down towards the bottom. But i don't know how one can get it out of the column itself. I have had a headache and a backache from bending over backwards under my dash to try and get this beast off.

    Any idea's would be awesome.

    I just replaced my int shaft and bearing yesterday, it was really easy. if you want to just replace the bearing, disconnect the shaft from under the dash using 15mm wratchet wrench. then use a flat head screw driver and pry it in between the bearing and column base, then turn the screw driver and watch the bearing separate from the column base. then just use both hands and sum force to pull it out.
