i replace these all the time. but let me warn you, its a lot of work. you have to virtually take the whole steering column apart. there is a couple of special puller you need to do this. the part is cheap. about 10 dollars but it could take up to 2 hours for a seasoned pro such as myself. if you try it yourself, expect double that . and make sure you put everthing back exactly the way it came apart.
