Pulling off the steering column cover?

Title says it all...how in the hell do I gain access to all the wiring under there?

Fuse keeps blowing and I'm thinking it's shifter related. Really hoping to see some bare wires!

Thanks

Or if anyone knows how to pull the ignition let me know, that's all that's stopping me.

you can pop the plastic trim off the ignition , or disconnect your batteries turn the ignition on and insert a tool such as an o-ring pick into the hole on the lower column cover ( the one with no screw in it) and push up on the pin , it might require a litle jiggling but you'll fell the pin move up and you'll be able to remove the tumbler assemby

It's that easy? I wasn't sure how it was secured on there. So i'll be able to pop it back on?

Which fuse are you blowing? Just FYI there is a common problem with the wire going to the OD switch. Right where it comes out of the shifter column the insulation wears off and shorts out.

You hit the nail on the head

That's the issue I'm having, Fuse #19 keeps blowing as soon as I attempt to shift to Gear 2.

Just got back from work and about to go check it all out.

Thanks for the heads up
