Is this a tilt column? or standard column? What bearing are you referring to? upper column or lower column?
What is the reason for replacement? column loose? or making noise?
The tool I am talking about removes the pins #6 in the picture below. It threads into the pins and pulls them out. You may be able to make one by using a small bolt that will screw into the pin, a spacer to allow the pin to be pulled up and a washer and nut to pull the pin through the spacer.
Or you could use a small slide hammer with a screw that will slide into the pin.
A lock plate remover will also be needed to remove the steering lock plate clip.
A steering wheel puller will be needed to remove the steering wheel.
Here is the diagram. Look it over and let me know what you need explained.
The bearings will go into the housing #36
I will try to get you some pictures of the tools needed.
