Just bought the eBay box wiring unitizer, what do I need to pull a column from a Vue? Want to take everything I need to the pic a part place.

You will need some wire cutters, a 13 mm socket, a socket wrench with extension (impact driver with socket adapter is what I used) and a smaller socket (7 mm i think, bring an assortment) that can go on a screwdriver. The smaller 7mm bolts hold the dash panels on, once those are out of the way there are two 13mm bolts holding the front (1 and 2 below) and one long 13mm (3 below) that the column pivots on, you access it from the left side and it pulls all the way out. All three 13mm a easy to reach, but getting the long one threaded out can take some time.



Take as much wiring as you can get.

The car I pulled mine from had been smacked in the front, so I couldn't get under the hood to release the steering shaft. There is a bolt holding the first u-joint onto the splined shaft (4 above), I undid that and gave the whole unit a good yank. Well, the u-joint in the engine compartment failed first (5 above), which worked out great for me. As you can see, I got the first u-joint and the collapsible part of the column behind it.

I just pulled the epas steering column out from the junkyard as well. Thinking of getting the ebay Vue epas steering controller...

Couple of questions...

Anyone figure out the wiring to make the steering sensitivity based on speed?

Anyone with the ebay controller willing to send me a pic of their instructions via PM? I'd like to see what controls what with the wiring...

I know that some people have figured a way to make a corsa b/c epas steering speed sensitive by using a speedo corrector/healer box....thinking there must be a way we could do the same with the vue/equinox epas steering setup.

From what I've read the speed sensitivity really isn't worth it. If you mimicked the vue setup then you would have an assist "curve" for a small SUV, not a classic mustang with whatever steering setup you have. It would take some fiddling to get it to feel right, if you even could. But with a knob, it sounds like most find the sweet spot quickly, then set and forget. I don't have a problem turning a knob for parking lots or freeways or whatever comes in between, I bet I barely ever adjust it once set.

Found one already pulled at a local salvage yard. Is there anything else I should need or look for that they may have taken off the column that I may need? I'm pretty exicited about this. Another question. Say you bought one of those tilt columns from ididit, would this work with that?

A pm so that nobody else can see it? Sharing info is cool.

How big is that cylinder? Its tight but where the pump is in the engine bay if removed it may fit... Only thing i would be worried about would be how close to the manifold it may be

Any links to eBay harness or seller? I agree, this thread has the makings to be one of VMFs greatest.

i keep looking over this document and hoping somehow 3254 can be replaced with the unit.. It will be tight, may require some kind of coupling or adapters but it may work if the long shaft on the vue column is sized down... I really need to get one and start measuring stuff.. this is all in my head but with no power booster i think it could fit
