I tried to remove steering column plastic shroud this morning on my 2000 Morgan plus 8 to cover in leather.I removed the 3 screws from underneath the shroud and separated the 2 halves but the bottom part I am having trouble get over the lift lever that raises and lowers the steering wheel as lever is bigger then the slot opening on the shroud.Any help would be appreciated also going to replace the airbag steering wheel with the new mot lita wheel I just got and boss after I deactivate airbag.
