Preliminary work: Cars with mechanical steering column adjustment: Steering wheel removed.

Steering angle sensor removed.

Version B has a ridge in the middle (arrow) as an identification.

Insert both withdrawal hooks to depth of approx. 8 cm at side between instrument cluster and instrument panel with curved end pointing downward and turn 90°inward toward instrument cluster.

Carefully pull out withdrawal hooks until they catch in the recesses on the instrument cluster.

Alternatively pull out instrument cluster on left and right sides approx. 5 mm with withdrawal hooks.

NOTE: In order to prevent the withdrawal hooks from slipping off while pulling press outward at angle of approx. 120°and never pull withdrawal hooks simultaneously.
