    i am going to try to remove the circular cover on the steering-lock (the circular piece that says "Lock" & "Unlock" on the steering column of my '09 RKC).
    i have a clock (Marlin's) that i want to put there which flips up, allowing access to the locking mechanism for the key.
    does anyone know the best way to remove that piece?
    i assume it is glued on. right?
    is this something that can be heated with a blow-dryer and then removed with, say, fishing line?
    any ideas?

    much appreciated.
    thanks.

    The pre-09’s are friction fit in place, you just have to pry out. Assume yours is the same?

    thanks, guys.
    so maybe a little goo-gone, let it soak, and then try to scrape it out with some fishing line?
    what does friction fit mean?

    cheers.

    Means it is a seperate plate, pressed tightly into the recessed area and held in place by friction
