Steering intermediate shaft and flexible coupling - removal and refitting
1 Apply the handbrake, jack up the front of the vehicle and support on axle stands.
2 Working in the engine compartment, unscrew the bolt securing the intermediate shaft to the inner column, swivel the clamp plate to one side, and disconnect the intermediate shaft.
3 Unscrew and remove the clamp bolt securing the flexible coupling to the steering gear (see illustration).

4 Mark the coupling in relation to the pinion, then pull off the intermediate shaft and remove it from the vehicle. The pinion has a master spline, but making alignment marks will aid refitting (see illustration).
