How to disassemble teleflex steerbox

Hi,

How to i disassemble the shown Teleflex backmounted steerbox (mechanical).
it's from 1998. I have removed the cable.

The grey metal part is the problem. It has to be removed to enable the steerbox to be removed from the backside. I know the picture is very poor, i'll try to make a better one if needed.

There is a small hole right next to the threaded bolt (the one for the steering wheel). I suppose there is a sort of "key" down there to prevent the wheel from turning on the axel.

any ideas how to get it of ?

br
Nikolaj

Get a bearing puller, That should do it as long as you can get the legs behind it

Yes.


It's a Morse Taper with a woodruff key behind it. Soak the middle (NOT the outside) in penetrating fluid and use a bearing puller on it.

As others have said, a 3-legged puller will do it. Put some tension on the centre bolt, then give it a sharp tap with a hammer and the whole lot will come off and land on your foot.



SR4.7 console?

It's done

hi guys .. thanks a lot for your help.. I managed to do it without the retractor/puller. A few knocks with a small hammer did the job. It's the first time in 12 years i diassemble the steering system so......

Yes it's 4.7 steering console. I have just build a new seating part and i'm reusing the old front part. My new part supports a 62 liter build in fuel tank. After applying some top-coat and a new seat i think it looks pretty good considered it's build by an fiberglass amateur ;-)
