2002 Jeep G Cherokee 4.7 v8 - Pulled steering wheel/column out of jeep and column flipped over 180*
HELP PLEASE! I was taking the dash out of my 02 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 v8 so that I could replace the heater core, ac evap, and blend doors. After dropping the column and pulling the steering wheel and column out of the vehicle safely and setting it down in the correct orientation, I picked up the steering wheel and column from the ground without holding the column (so i just grabbed the wheel with 2 hands and picked up the part) which led to the column flipping over 180 degrees. Now the column is upside down from the correct orientation of the wheel and its locked so that i cant turn it back the correct way. I also didnt see which way the column flipped so i dk if it flipped 180* to the right or left.. I dk if this is bad or not. Trying to find info online has been unhelpful so this is the first time ever asking a question online. I figure i need to insert the key (which is now on the left hand side of the wheel) to turn the wheel back to its original position, but is there something that could go wrong if i turn it the wrong direction and or does anyone know if I broke something or misaligned the column? I try to work on my vehicles if possible but i'm no mechanic. Any help would be great.
