Thank you! I'm reviewing now. The part I want to remove is here (I've already removed the key cylinder)

From you diagram, there appears to be a single Torx screw I need to remove? On my jeep, this is obscured by other parts on the steering column - perhaps the "multi-function switch".

 

Thanks,

-Jeff
