You will now have to remove the large screws (usually 3) that holds the upper column together, and be careful because there is usually a bearing at the top of the column housing when you pull it apart, and if they drop out you will have to put them all back into their carrier cage with some grease to hold the bearings in place when you re-attach the upper coulmn.
\015\012As soon as the upper steering column has been removed you should see the culprit, and it will be 4 little reverse torx head bolts that hold the carrier assembly together around the steering shaft pivot.
\015\012You should use the correct reverse torx bit with a 1/4" drive ratchet and extension, to remove and replace those carrier housing bolts. and it should be done one bolt at a time. (you might also need a 1/4" drive swivel) You should clean the bolt threads on the bolt and in the carrier assembly with some brake cleaner in a spray can to remove any grease or oils from the threads, and then use the medium grade blue "lock-tite" thread locker on the bolts when you re-install them.
