You have to remove the steering column partly just enough to drop it. Here's a picture of what the part look like when apart. Copy and paste the link below and let me know if you need more info.

While waiting for response noticed my Junior tech found the procedure in the WIS and he then was pulling the instrument cluster out....I stopped him to confirm the procedure......Can you tell me the process of dropping the column? based on picture you can leave the cluster intact and after the part is replaced do you go to DAS and program the EIS or Steering Column with orange key....I am questioning this since in the morning you may not be available and I can ( the tech really) compare your instruction with WIS( Germanish) and make sense out of it.....
If you have first hand experience, please tell me the do'es and don't s....
