This is the process that I used to rebuild the steering column in the malibu.  The majority of this process has been taken from ElCaminoCentral.com.

Tools Needed:

  • Phillips #1 & #2 screwdrivers
  • Small flat blade screwdriver
  • Ratchet
  • 13/16 socket
  • Small brass hammer
  • Small picks
  • Needle nose pliers
  • #20 & #30 Torx bit
  • Inverted Torx bit #E8
  • 7mm socket
  • 1/4 socket
  • Small chisel
  • Modified, (ground down) 1/4 socket driver
  • Steering wheel puller
  • Lock plate remover/installer
  • Pivot pin remover
  • Lock tite thread locker
  • Wheel bearing grease
