Inner Shaft removal for Upper Steering Column

Question: How do I remove the inner shaft from the upper steering column? Looks like there is a snap ring that holds the shaft in place.

Application: The PO cut the stock steering wheel spline off and welded a different spline to accomodate a Sparco aftermarket steering wheel. I have the stock steering wheel and a used 97 upper steering column I purchased from Safari Rover. The LR Manual states I need to drill out the shear bolts to replace the entire upper steering column, but if it is easier to just replace the inner shaft like Mike from ECR suggested in old post then that is what I want to do that. Anyone have suggetions or experience with this?

Thanks,
Rob

No, just his posts and my offer to move them. Since you read it, you should recall he posted this post, then a post saying he didn't realize it was in wanted and that he'd start a new thread. I posted offering to move the post to a new thread, and after seeing he had already created this one, I cleaned up. The previous thread is here:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...teering+column

Do you have any specific problem or concern with this housekeeping?

BTW, I'm glad to see you fixing this Rob - that looks downright scary.

A lot must have happened in the time I opened it and went to get breakfast. I opened the thread, opened a photo, then when I got back (with that photo still up) I went to go to the next photo and it gave me some invalid message. I hit the back button to see if something had happened, and the thread was no longer there - just wanted to see what ECR had said as from what Robert had said I thought it was a more detailed solution than ECR had actually written up (now that you linked to the thread and I read it). Since the thread was "gone" I was seeing if he knew what had happended to it.

None of the follow-up posts or your posts were in there when I had it opened.

I'm not sure what happened to you but the thread never went away. Perhaps because the post you were looking at went away, things got wonky for you. But as you can see the thread is still there. It happened over the course of a minute or so, so you must also have missed his follow up post, which was simply

Damn, didn't realize this was in the "wanted section". I will re-post in the technical discussion area.

You eat a late breakfast. I think it's called brunch at 11:00.
