justin,this is from memory,i will check later with Mr Haynes(when I find it),
remove steering wheel,undo I think four screws beneath cowl and remove,the wiper and indicator controls are fixed to a centre collar, and I think it is just a matter of disconnecting the relevant multiplug and removing one or two bolts,not too big a job. I presume you have not an airbag to worry about,if you have then ignore the above.

It can just be done with the wheel on, but i'd disconnect the battery 1st!

Clear as much cowling away as possible, and use very short screwdrivers with magnetic ends and disconnect the plug 1st.

I did mine (well reconnected the old one) when it wouldn't switch from dipped to main beam. took it off, clean and reinstalled,

And yes I have SRS too. Damn scary when your working down there!

Justin,

On some cars they recommend that you do not do anything around the Airbag for about half an hour after disconnecting the battery. There are capacitors and things that need to discharge.
