When replacing the steering lock assembly in your Benz you will need to remove that little black plastic switch on the side of the lock from the old one and put it on the new part. You can not pry it off, squeeze it off or pull it off by hand.
Kent has seen so many of these damaged that he decided to do a video instruction on how to remove it without damage - and no frustration! This video will cover the following:
- The theory of operation
- How it is made
- Methods of removal that will not work
- How to depress the button
- How to install the switch
- How to remove the switch with the right tool
- Other resources available when dealing with steering lock issues
The procedure is really quite easy once you see the technique. This is a classic example of the importance of understanding the theory of how something works and knowing the steps on how to do it correctly.
