Default Steering column disection

Does anyone know what the basic steps are to remove the steering column housing to get at the ignition wires in the column? 92 SSE

Thanks

I'm not sure I'd be willing to attempt this on verbal advice. Spend the 15 bucks on Chilton'* #28200 for this one.

The column usually does not need to be removed to "get at" the ignition wires. Can you be more specific as to what you are doing?

If I am correct, the VATS wires should be coming from ignition key module.

Since this is obviously your first time I strongly suggest you get a book before trying this.
