Hey all, just ordered the electrical Ignition switch (Not the Mechanical part) for my '86 325e and I was just wondering if there were any pitfalls to look out for? I am at work and don't have my service manual with me so correct me if I am wrong (PLEASE!!!) but do I just need to drop the bottom half of the steering column cover and pop it out and right back in? I know this car is by far the easiest car I have ever worked on, but I wanted to check with the experts to see if there was something I am missing?!


Thanks alot all!!!

bad man working is an unknown quantity at this point
Just one thing to watch out for the switch is held to the steering column housing by two very small grub screws, which are normally painted over. Make sure that you clean the slots of the screws out before you try and turn them.
