I would like to thank @ermax for his detailed procedure.
I am going to attempt this fix tomorrow and will report back with my feedback.

Just to some up the points I read in the other thread discussing the same issue, so that anybody can read all the required information in one place:

Additional tips:

1- use little bit of grease on the coupler to keep it in place when installing it in the motor.

2- While installing back the 14mm flange headed bolt, be aware not to cross thread it.
You have to hold the unit by the motor to get enough leverage to rotate the whole
unit until the bolt runs through and lines up with the flange nut.
When pulling it apart if you don't pay attention, you will spread that bracket so it
is no longer square and then the bolt doesn’t line up properly when going back in.
If you can get a C clamp vise grip in there to bend the bracket back into shape that
may help.

3- If you release the telescoping/vertical adjustment lever after you've undone the
front two 12mm nuts, the whole wheel end of the column pulls right off the spline,
and you will be in danger to go out of alignment if you did not mark the connection before.
So it's better you telescope the wheel all the way out before you start disassembly.

Alternative way:
Removing that forward chunk of steering column (circled by red in the blow diagram) by playing with the telescoping lever made getting to and reattaching that back bolt way easier.
MARK the connection with a marker so you can get all the splines aligned back in place.
Check diagram pic for more info.

below are some of my notes while I was doing the job:

1- To remove the odometer switch, pry the circled tab at the back of the switch a flat head screw driver.



2- When removing the knee protector pad, there is an Air Bag clip connected to it. To remove the clip, follow the instructions below:





3- To remove the brake light switch connector, push on the circled tab below:



4- Below is a picture showing the notorious 14 mm bolt and why you cannot take it out without rotating the assembly:



5- I found that the 2 nuts holding the steering column were 14 mm and not 12 mm.
