    Well, this is a lot of info to try and cram into this small space. First you have to take out the steering column.


    I would recommend that you subscribe to ALL DATA DIY for $26 for the year and they'll give you all the step by steps and diagrams you'll need. Here's a sample, below, of what you'll get (this is just for the intermediate shaft, not the steering column removal)


    good luck. The $26 bucks buys you info on any repair on your car, for the whole year.
