I started out by removing the steering wheel to gain access to the clock spring. Here you can see the old CS with the blank connector in the upper left had side of the connector cluster. We will be replacing this with the CS from a heated steering wheel so we have two pins in that location so we can pass the actuation signal for the paddles.

Start out by removing the four (4) Torx bolts on each corner and unplugging the four (4) connectors on the back of the CS.

Remove the control stalks from the original CS and transplant them onto the new one. I didn't document this, but it should be fairly intuitive.
