Use a stiff wire to get down the side of the column. Use it to pull a string through. Tie the string to the connector and pull it through. Patience is a virtue

Matthew, if you take the column bracket off (2 bolts holding column up and 4 bolts holding bracket) and remove the black plastic wire cover, fold the wires where the connector is in line with the wires it usually comes out without too much difficulty.

Another 3 to 9 years should finish it. In year 7 and still working on it - no end in sight.

Exactly what I did. Worked well with a minimal amount of swearing.

Thanks. Dont let the list fool you. I am a sucker for old rusty junk. A couple of those are projects i am in the middle of. I keep getting distracted. Short attention span and all.
