Rustywrangler posted a link to a site a month or so ago with a good write up. I saved the link but that was on my home computer. I won't be home for another 4 hrs. If he hasn't posted up by then, I'll post it for you.

Here is a good link for the complete tear down of the column (prolly the link I posted):

And here is a link that Big N Broke YJ posted up with a diagram of the switch:

Hope this helps you out. Just take your time and get the stinkin pullers from autozone (advanceauto wont have both) They save a TON of time.
