Default Steering Column Seal

Need some direction as to how to install this seal. I'm assuming the steering wheel has to be removed from my 64 T'bird. Is this a difficult removal? If someone could provide the steps I would greatly appreciate it, as I have tried all sorts of manuals on this with negative results. Thank You

Are you referring to the selector tube bushing at the bottom of the column above the rag joint ?

Are you talking about the lower steering column seal (part 3513 on the diagram)? It appears that the seal is attached to the firewall and then the steering column is inserted through it. I don't see any easy way to install it without removing the column.

Yes, John that's the part. I have to look at this further on how to tackle this. Apparently its severely torn. Thanks for the reply. I did see this in the manual but it doesn't give instructions.
