Hey guys, I was replacing my ignition lock cylinder and then was going to replace my ignition switch so after I replaced the lock cylinder, I thought I would remove the entire shroud from the steering column to get easier access to the ignition switch. Well, I removed those four bolts under the plastic assembly that all the wires go to and the shroud wouldn't come off all the way, so I tried to get it to slide back down the column into position and it is stuck too far out.

Note: In the meantime I dropped the column like I should have done in the first place to replace the ignition switch so that is taken care of.

So now I am trying to get the shroud to slide back down into position and it's about two inches too far out to get those four bolts back into place. It seems like it's hanging on something.

All help will be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!
