Hey guys, Does anyone know how to take off the retaining ring that holds most of the steering column together? Either I'm a dumbass (which is probably true) or I just dont know the secret on how to remove it.

(in the FSM its the next step after removal of the wheel.

If it is the part I think it is you need a special tool. The tool compresses the ring and allows you to remove it, you should be able to rent it from an auto parts store.

You also need an icepick, and a pair of needle nose pliers. The ring fits tight and is hard to grasp.
