Steering column Shroud question

I'm replacing the steering column shroud on my '05 Lariat. I'm puzzled about the screws and what's going on with the third one. In the pic below I have my new shroud laid open like a clamshell. You can see the screw bosses in the bottom half (there are 3 of them). Each one of these 3 bosses seats on a metal boss with a hole in it on the column. I'll try to get a good pic of that up later. The screws go up through the bottom shround, through the metal bosses on the column, then into the screw receiving points in the top shroud; but there are only 2. I looked at the metal boss on the column and the screw does not bite into that.



I can't tell what was there originally because my shroud was a bit jacked up and only had 2 screws in it.

So looking solely at what I have, I have to think that either there is only supposed to be 2 screws that hold the shroud on, of there is a screw receiver thingy that's supposed to be part of the column.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Well, I must have been looking at the column hardware incorrectly. I fitted the shrouds and all 3 screws found material to secure them. I can't exactly say at the moment what that 3rd screw bit into, but it definitely ran in nicely and the shroud is held in perfectly.

Sometimes its the simple the simple things that make the biggest difference . . .like a perfectly fitting, un-hacked-up steer shroud

I am trying to remove the shroud off of my truck and was wondering how to remove the shroud from around the key area. I can't figure out how to remove the plastic piece around where the key goes in.
Thanks, Cole

Cole,
You gotta pull the key cylinder out. After you have the 3 screws out of the bottom and the bottom cover off, put the key in and turn it to ON. There's a little hole in the bottom directly below the key cylinder. You stick a pin punch up in there to release the catch ball and pull on the cylinder. Then, the upper shroud comes right off.

later,
Hemicbx
