PROCEDURE - Disassembly:
Removal of the power steering gear is not necessary to complete this repair.
Park the vehicle on a clean, dry, solid surface, preferably concrete. Set the parking brake and block the
wheels. Place the transmission in neutral.
Tilt the hood or cab using the procedure in the Vehicle Manufacturer's Service Manual.
Loosen and remove the pinch bolt on the lower end yoke of the steering shaft.
Remove the lower yoke from the steering gear input shaft. If necessary, secure the shaft so it will not be
in the way.
Do not pull the slip shaft out of the steering shaft. This would require rephasing at time
Place the drain pan under the power steering gear. Draining the system is not necessary, but some fluid
will be lost.
