1). Make sure the dashboard is pushed into place and flush with the rest of the vehicle. Apply pressure down onto the dashboard to give the steering rod more room to apply steering wheel.
2). When placing on the steering wheel over the rod, this may displace the rod towards the floor. Once the steering wheel is placed on, push the steering rod from the bottom of the vehicle towards the steering wheel.
3). If the rod continues to slide down to the floor, place the vehicle on its side and repeat steps 1 and 2.
