Step 13 - Remove clock spring connectors

Remove the 2 connectors just behind and to the right of the clock spring, the outermost one requires you to rotate a lever 90 degrees, don't force anything.

Step 14 - Remove steering column bolts

Remove the 4 E10 External torx bolts from the top of the steering column. Make sure to the support the column once you get to removing the last 2, it is rather light but be careful not to damage any plastic trim.

Step 15 - Remove steering column lock connector

Located on the left side of the column, about halfway down. Be careful not to break the connector as I did by accident.

Step 16 - Remove 2 wire harness clips along column

Step 17 - Remove steering column
