The two bolts that hjold the pod in are hex.
After that, it's a lot of wiggling and pulling with a suction cup of sorts.

Angle the top of the pod downwards to get it loose, and then you can pull it outwards.

If you just need to replace a bulb, you MAY be able to do it without removing the steering wheel, depending on where it is. Its a *TOTAL* bitch, *ESPECIALLY* if you don't have a telescoping steering wheel.

Other than that,m you may need to remove the steering wheel. If I knew how to take the wheel off, I'd do that if I had to take te pod out again.
