Electrical key switch assembly

(1990 Audi 100)
in Carson City, NV on February 06, 2010
The electrical assembly on the back of the key switch is bad. In order to replace it, I have removed the lower panel, the steering wheel & steering column switch assembly, and the instrument panel assembly. The electrical assembly is secured to the back of the switch by two small screws. There is a aluminum crash bar surrounding the key switch. How do I access the retaining screws? There are no holes in which to put a screwdriver.

you need to remove the steering column lock assembly (the part the switch is in) by loosening the #30 tamper proof torx screw. you will probably need to remove the key cylinder to make extra room to slide it out. knowing where to make a hole to remove the key part is a talent and will take a long time to explain. if you need it explained, leave another post.
