So,I've got what appears to be the typical ignition switch/connector issue on my girlfriends 2007 Beetle.The symptoms are very typical with no headlights,no turn signals,A.C./blower fan and no wipers.The problem was intermittant until now.Now I've lost the afore mentioned controls.When ever the steering column was raised or lowered or the column was bumped into by a knee, thecar would either stall or lose those system funtionalities. Ive started to remove the steering column upper and lower covers but to no avail.I can remove the top piece only.The bottom piece will not let go even after all of the screws have been removed.No amount of gentle prying and manipulation can free the lower cover. It's frustrating to have something so simple to repair be held up by something so rediculous. Anyone know what may be holding this piece up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
