Help! How do I remove this plug from the steering wheel housing?


Recommended Posts

Here is a picture. I am trying to figure out how to get this ring removed and it is connected by the grey plug. I am installing a cup wheel and quick release so this needs to go!

Thanks for any help in advance!!!!! :cheers:

Cheers,

Here are detailed instructions for replacing a steering wheel and the stalks (for a Boxster, but I believe the 996 is the same) that include removal of that ring: http://www.whiteson.org/boxster/mods/obc/obc.stalk.pdf

Maurice, while I appreciate the reply, have you actually read those instructions? The grey plug is NOT removed from the plastic ring during the entire OBC hack install. Rather it is just hanging out of the way.

Thanks for the reply, but I need to know how to remove the grey plug as pictured. I have added a zoomed in picture illustrating what needs to be removed. The grey plug that attaches to the plastic ring assembly appears to be latched on or something but I can't figure out how to slide it out.

Figured it out. I decided to go further into the dash and see where this wiring assembly ends. It actually splits into to wiring harnesses just under the dash which you can reach by just removing the top half plastic steering column cover. Here is a picture of what the 2 connectors look like. Thanks Maurice for you reply....just thought I would post back the end result in case anybody else does this in the future.

And if you have a tip then you also have a blue connector.

Wish people would not look at the pictures in the link, since they were taken when we did 6 OBC retrofits w/stalk at the same time, and I am in the pictures. Those pictures are 100 years old. Don't do it that way anymore.

Sorry I misunderstood your first post. I did read and use the instructions this past summer to remove my steering wheel, but I can see now that they didn't address your problem. Glad you found the solution and posted it here for those that will come up against this later.

Looking forward to the DIY.

Regards, Maurice.
