You have to get the right one as there are two different types ;)
Not too hard to do, a bit awkward if you're like me & 6'2" with broad shoulders as it's hard to fit under the dash to see, even when you're upside down :lol:
pretty sure it's 2 or 4 13mm bolts that hold the brackets for the colomn & then undo it from either the rack or the uj, i don't think the two different colomns are compatable from the join where you can adjust the hieght of the wheel.

Bob @ cgb motorsport will be able to help if you let him know what type of rack you have ;)

4x13mm bolts, don't forget to reattach the earth cable aswell when you put it back together.  :wink:
