    Its not the same as that, its a complete sealed unit not a separate PC board. You need to drop th steering column covers, the bottom one is held on by the screws in the reach/rake adjustment handle, the top clips to the bottom, the centre section of the clocks just pulls out.
    The steering column electronics control unit -J527- is attached to steering column module with two spring catches. – Use small screwdriver to release springs -1- and -2-.– Detach the steering column electronics control unit -J527- by pulling it downwards from steering column module.Installing– Note the safety measures for airbag systems → Rep. Gr.69.– Installation is performed in reverse sequence.– Make sure that all connectors are engaged and that wires are positioned in guides provided.

    Its a very fiddly job I found. Elsawin says to use a 4mm drill (if I remember correctly) and I spent ages trying to get the ****** off! Went and had a cup of tea and when I came back to it I freed it within a few seconds. Patience is the key. Take your time and what ever you do don't force it
