After reading Mr. Bently procedures and not having done it before I let my shop
do it.  Not fun on the 200 due to all the structure in and around the
dash.  They
were glad to see the car leave.  Involves entire steering wheel housing,
air bag,
some or all of the center console.
.... hey maybe any climate control work to be done while it's apart ?
Tough decision if you need the car for daily transportation.
