Recently the Steering Column Actuator failed on my son’s truck. I managed to get it replaced and everything works fine. However, I took some advice from the internet and cut the end off the actuator to get it in the slot before connecting the ignition rod. Now, the truck goes into gear, with or without the key in the ignition. I learned that the piece I cut off works the shift interlock. I feel this is unsafe, especially since this truck belongs to my 17 yo son. Anyway, I want to purchase another one and reinstall the correct way. My question is how do you install this the correct way? How do I remove that last piece of the column to properly install the column actuator? You can find pictures and videos of people replacing this all over the internet, but all of them cut the end off the actuator. How do I do this correctly?
