Remove instrument panel on Vectra

Needed to change my instrument panel bulbs as i couldnt see my speedo at night. Pics from my vectra 1997 model. This may also apply to the improved later ones before the facelift Vectra.

Here is my how to guide for everyone: -

STEP 1: Remove steering column surround. 2 screws holding the top piece to the bottom. Adjust steering wheel as in pics. 3 screws holding the bottom piece. NOTE 1 screw is different!

STEP 7: Lever the black retaining clip from yellow plug. This is behind the left hand side but be careful, just move left side towards you till you can see behind instrument panel. Main instrument panel connector will automatically disconnect when you move instrument panel.
