Answer
Hello again Virginia:
Thank you for the clarification but it will still be difficult to accurately tell you what you need.  There are multiple ways to steal a car like yours involving breakage of different components.  If you can send us a picture of your column (from your phone) we will be better able to see what you need.  You can send the photos to info@steeringcolumnservices.com

However, with that said, most of the time the parts required are the upper lock cover an internal gear or two and a dimmer cap with actuator.  These parts run less than $100 and we have the instructions on how to replace them available as well on our website: www.steeringcolumnservices.com

We look forward to being able to help you.  Feel free to contact us by email or by phone
