You cant, its a unique bearing and is not replacable.
So its either a new column from Ford (last I heard they were $700) or a visit to the wreckers.

They generally die because people drop the column and let it hang solely on the bearing, which stuffs it.
You should undo the plate at the firewall first then the other bolts.
