Go down with your head under the steering wheel,
look up, you see 4 small torx screws to unmount the lower dashboard,
it reaches from under the steering wheel to the pedals.
There may be some connectors attached on the backside.
Under there is a rubber boot wich seals the steering column and the engine compartment,
spray a little silicone oil on top where the steering column goes inside the rubber,
there sits the felt joint.
