I pulled the wheel, inst cluster, then the block of Al that is the
shaft housing (that was the hard part) that holds the steering wheel
mounting stub and the column down thru the pedals.  Nothing else needs
to come out, but it's ugly getting that hunk of metal out of the dash.
I seem to recall posting a rant about wanting to mutilate the Bentley
guy who wrote "push down and remove" about that step and nothing more.
