U can replace the bolts urself its not real easy though u have to remove the coulmn shrouds and igniton cyclinder get a thin long round punch with a sharp tip and u have to bite into the bolts head at differnt points and unscrew like that untill u can grab it with pliers to finsh unscrew it all the way then put the new screws in with a small reverse torx socket or inverted torx. Sound like something u want to tackle?
