Is there a trick to removing the black plastic tubular steering column cover off the column (without removing the wheel)? There seems to be a clip tab along the seam, but I do not want to force it.

I started with a plan to just upholster the front seats, and it has expanded to removing the most of the interior and repainting everything. The old just does not look good next to the new!!

Thanks,
Tony

Actually, there is a trick (at least what I do.) If the cluster is still in, you won't get it out, . . . . unless . . .
you take the lower column cover off, then take of the three nuts holding the steering column up. Push the steering column down until it drops about an inch, which gives you room to slide the cover towards the instrument panel. Slide it forward until it releases from the tabs (and the clip, if its still tehere), then carefully spread it open, and lift it off the column. If the clip slides with the cover, reach in and slide it off the joint.
