- If equipped, disable the SIR system, as outlined in Section 6 of this manual.
- If not already done, disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Lower the steering column; be sure to properly support it.

- Install the actuating rod into the switch and assemble the switch on the column. Tighten the mounting screws.
Use only the specified screws since over-length screws could impair the collapsibility of the column.
- Install the steering column.
- If equipped with the SIR system, properly enable the system, as outlined in Section 6 of this section.
