    Power steering or manual?
    Speaking of manuals, do you have a Honda shop manual? (Pretty cheap on ebay)

    If not, I can scan the two pages that describe removing the rack and email them to you or post them here.

    Unbolt the tie rods, the steering column, the mounting brackets and pull it out. The steering column attaches to the rack with a u-joint. When you loosen it, the u-joint will slide up on the steering column and out of the way of the rack. Then rotate the rack slightly as you drop it.
