I just had to take mine off today to fix my steering lock. First off you'll need a 24 mm socket, I had to pay 12 bucks for one at carquest. So the cover should just come off, I just yanked it right off. Once ya got that off, take off the 24 mm bolt and the steering wheel should just pull right off no problem. I think from there you should be able to get the windshield wiper switch off. Ya should be able to figure it out. Good luck man

if you need to take off the wheel gear youll need a gear puller. those can get expenisve as i recall but i think u shoudl be able to do it without taking the gear off

yeah i got it all figured out. i went to my local VW parts shop and i guess my problem was caused by dust getting in there an corroding shit. the dude said it was pretty common. so tomorrow i get a new switch and about 30 minutes later, lets hope everything works.
