Re: Do you need special puller for steering column? (DillonS)

Go to any AutoZone Store and borrow a "PosiLock" tool to remove the steering column collar. It's basically a three jaw puller with a collar that keeps the jaws from spreading under pressure and coming off the collar when you're tightening the pressure screw to force the collar off.
The deposit is the highest I've ever seen (about $125), but you just need the tool for a few minutes. Make sure that the tool is not already broken, before you pay the deposit.

steering column

how do you put a 96 vw golf steering column together? is there a large or small spring that goes between the shaft and the Ujoint? also having troubles lining the entire interior column up correctly so that I can put my collar and steering wheel on. I bought a wrecked vw golf and starting building it from bottom up so it didnt have anything in it before I got it.


thanks for your help.
