A note about Step. 8 8. Pull the ignition switch housing off of the steering column. There is a large rubber like coller that holds the bearing in place. This must slide off and there may be a VW Tool to grab the 3 slots at the bottom of it to pull it up. Putting the stearing wheel nut back on and tapping the steering wheel shaft downwords will losen up this colar and allow it to come up, otherwise you must disconnect the steering rod at the bottom and pull the entire thing out of the steer rod housing.
