Re: Help! Remove ignition cowl..
I removed my cowl yesterday as my steering wheel had an annoying squeak so had to grease the ring at the rear where an electrical contact sits against it. Anyway, I removed the two screws either side of the steering wheel, these are easy to remove by turning the steering wheel to give clearance. I removed all the screws, and then slacked off the clip for holding the adjustable steering column in place.
I have mine as high as possible - still knock the wipers off with my knee when going for the brake pedal!
Lower the column and just gently wiggle the two parts of the cowl, they should come apart easily. If not then double check you have removed all of the screws and check that theres nothing obstructing it.
Hope you sort it out. Paul.
