What kind of car is it?
Most columns, you just look at them ,get your wrenches, find the bolts ,take them out. and remove the column. Good Luck,

Troy,

Troy.... I understand your confusion. Your first response is how I usually take anything apart. Take the bolts and nuts off 1 at a time until it comes apart. Seems simple to me. Sometimes I get extra bolts that way.
