Step 1

Using a trim removal tool, pop off the side trim piece. There are three clips, one on each corner.

Step 2

  • Wedge your fingers behind the lower section of the trim and firmly pull upwards as shown by the red arrows.
  • With the bottom clips released use a gentle hinging and pulling motion to release the top clips on both sides of the steering wheel. Pull away as shown by the orange arrows.
  • Be careful releasing the clips as the trim will drop downwards. It is quite heavy.

Step 3

As the trim is released you will need to unplug the headlight switch. Push on the clip and unplug.
