hey guys,
I just completed my climate control conversion, but now ive hit a bit of a speed bump. I didnt read the tech documents properly which tells you to put a mark on the bolts above the steering column so that you have a reference on where they go when you put it back on...

so now i dont know how far to go on the nuts and so far i keep getting real tight spots when i steer either way..

anyone know how to adjust it?

help would me much appreciated.. i would like to fix it before i damage something .

If you let the column rest on the floor while removing the dash you may have damaged the bearing at the firewall.

I concur with this statement, have seen it happen many times.
