      I do have an FSM and have read it fastidiously; but with 5 different car lines referenced, it has not become clear.

      It will move freely fore and aft, but just not enough to get it out.

        I'll be darned, I didn't know that goofy little clip even existed. I've been using a zip tie this whole time and before that it was just flopping around on there loose.

                That's not a very scientific description of that small amount of movement. :rofl:

                      R U trying to slid the box shaped coupler off of the splined shaft? Did u remove the set roll pin from it? or allen head plug? If so then I believe that thing will only slid up just so far without unbolting the column and yanking back on it. Still not coming then slid a big crow bar down below it and smack that with a BFH.

                        red of course :p

                        Yep. Punched the roll pin out already and it moves back and forth, but it wont come off. I took a pry bar to the bottom end of the coupler (near the steering gear) and it'll move back, but the steering shaft wont move back enough to slide it out. Im worried that if I smack it with a BFH, it may crack the little plastic bits (shear pins?) in the column
