This ?? has been asked before. The short answer is 'no'. It's tricky to remove the IC with steering wheel intact, but it can be done. Takes about 30-45 minutes depending on whether you've done it before.

I want to remove my instrument cluster ('00 S4) to see if I can find 
any way to restore the dim and fading display (temp, computer, etc). 
I'm thinking connectors, contacts and a quick search for dying voltage 
regulators, which at least used to plague VW dashboards. The Haynes 
book I have recommends that the steering wheel be removed, and first 
the airbag be removed.

I dont really want to get into all that unless its necessary. So:

1.) Any advice?
2.) Must the steering wheel come off before the IC comes out?
