NOTE: All fasteners are important because they can affect the performance of vital parts and systems.

Incorrect installation of the fasteners can result in major repair expenses. They must be installed new with fasteners of the same part number if installation becomes necessary. Do not install a new part of lesser quality or substitute a design. Torque values must be used as specified during assembly to make sure these parts function correctly.

The body of the steering column (3C529) is made of magnesium die castings. The steering column is attached to a support that is an integral part of the instrument panel. The lower attachments of the steering column are through a bracket that bends during collapse. The upper attachments are through plastic shear modules that separate from the main casting during collapse. A clip and washer are attached to the shear modules to reduce steering column shake and to assist in installation of the steering column.
