Thank you for the video, you helped me change the hazard flasher switch on
my dad's 90 astro. Now everything is working again. Keep up the good work.

I was able to fix my 88 Astro with no problems after viewing this video!
Thank you!

You sure can! It's a lot more work then replacing just the lever.

The gear shifter lever broke off my 98 Safari van. Can I just replace the
whole steering column to remedy that?

Take to a machine shop and have it pressed back in.

Would you know how to re-install the upper shaft on a 86 G Body steering
column. I watched your video to repair my tilt, but in the final step the
steering shaft came out. So I am having trouble re-installing the steering
column fork onto the steering upper shaft , which has the split spherical
"ball" in its fork. I have tried several times and can't get the fork over
the slots on the spherical ball. Any help would be asppreciated.

has anyone ever broke off the pivot pin tool inside the pin? i just got to
them on mine and before i even get 3 turns into pulling it, the tool snaps,
leaving the tiny piece in the threaded hole.

Hey great video!! thanks for uploading it!! I had a question though. The
four bolts that are loose, can you tighten them without removing the last
housing if you don't want to remove and locktite them?

What a friggen nightmare. The Japanese are experts at efficiency. I can
take my entire car apart with a 10mm, 12, 14, 17, 22, plus a 24 for the
rear end and a phillips head screw driver. But on my Astro, I find torque
bits right next to screws and right next to tiny bolts and so forth.
Idiotic to say the least and a total pain in the butt to work on. I got the
steering column swapped out including using this video to disassemble the
column to swap key's. Thanks again and to GM kiss my ass.

One of the best videos I have ever seen on YouTube. Great job in explaining
it. However, is it really necessary to pull the pins? It seems like last
time I did this that I could get to all four with universal and did not
have to remove the pins etc.... Tks

Hey what is the name of the tool you used to compress the plate under the
steering wheel and the 92 astro sould be just about the same assembly

Can't you tell me where to but that small special puller? Thanks you!!

Author Neil Carpenter ( ago)
