Message It's part of the engine pull TECH page. Simple stuff:

11. Disconnect Steering (not required, but can make things easier)
Unbolt the steering u-joints, remove both bolts (2 x12 mm)
Slide joints upward to come off steering rack
Make sure not to move plastic indexing piece on lower splines

Since you're replacing the U-Joint. I'd find some way to index the steering column so you get everything lined up the same. I recall the plastic indexer is on the rack and typically that's the end you would pull free to disconnect the column from the rack.
