Default Tilt lever removal

I'm a newbie to Dodge products and I need too repair what seems to be a bad connection on the steering column at the top. My heater/AC blower goes off and on when tilting the wheel. My problem is I can't figure out how to get the tilt lever off. I have the top of the column cover off and can wiggle the connector to duplicate the problem, but can't get the bottom cover off.
Any help would be appreciated.

i replaced my ignition switch last month and ran into the same issue.it took me longer to figure out how to remove the tilt lever than it took to replace the switch.if i remember right all you do is pull lever toward the back of truck.

When I installed my remote start I needed to remove the lever. If I recall correctly I had to pull the rubber part off by pulling it toward the driver seat then the bottom cover of the column just fit right over the remaining piece.
