Not to sure m8,as far as i can see the steering shaft comes out in one piece with the column...you might have to take a look once its out to see if ya can seperate them,sry cant help ya more..
Had a look in the manual but doesnt say either about seperating the 2.

The steering rack should connect via a yoke to the steering. Should be as simple as removing a locking bolt and sliding the splined shaft apart as you lower the steering rack. May take a little convincing if it is corroded, but off the top of my head at this hour that sounds about right.

under the vehicle,remove the steering shaft coupling to steering gear pinion clamp bolt and nut.Discard the nut and remove the clamp from the steering gear pinion.
then inside remove the bolts from the steering column lower bearing housing.
remove the bolts retaining the steering column mounting bracket to the dashboard,withdraw the steering column assembly from the vehicle.
Bit more info for ya...
