Try removing the lower shroud you might be able to manually pull the actuator back down, but you may need special tools to compress the column to replace the part(32) in diagram Doc is probablt right, but worth a shot!

On column shift, disconnect transmission control cable. On all models, remove steering wheel. See STEERING WHEEL . 2. Remove electrical connectors. Remove nut and bolt from upper to lower shaft connection. Remove upper and lower steering column support nuts. Remove steering column, rotating column to allow shift lever to clear instrument panel opening, if necessary. Installation To install, reverse removal procedure. Tighten upper and lower steering column mounting bolts to specification. Tighten upper intermediate steering shaft bolt and nut to specification. See TORQUE
CAUTION: Ensure wheels of vehicle are in straight-ahead position and steering column is in LOCK position before disconnecting steering column or intermediate shaft from steering gear, or SIR coil will become uncentered.
