18 Cover the upper steering column shroud with cloth to protect it during the following procedure.

19 Working under the instrument panel, prise the ends of the trim panel upwards to release it from the facia, and withdraw the panel (see illustration). If necessary, unscrew the lower steering column fixings further to enable the column to be lowered sufficiently for access.
