Renewing steering lock 1995 E34

Just ordered a new steering lock and trying to get the old one out.
Wheel is off but I now need to get top half of the clamshell removed to see where I go next. Can anyone tell me what holds it on and what the job entails as I have never changed a steering lock before on any of my previous 50+ cars. Many thanks Terry UK

Just did it on mine not to long ago , go to youtube and type steering wheel lock assembly . It is a video for q e36 but it is exactly the same . Took me 30 min. To do . There is two break of screws on top of the clam shell . What I did was used a punch to remove it tapping it counter clockwise little by little . It does not take much to loosen up . Then I replaced it with Allen screws,so if it happened next time I could easily remove it with Allen wrenches .
