Question Change the dash lights on a 1988 560SL

Hey everyone,
I have a 1988 560SL, the dash lights don't work. I've checked the fuse it's fine so it must be the bulb(s).
How do you change the thing?? I get the feeling the steering column has to come out, is that correct?

Thanks!

Steering column doesn't have to come out, but the steering wheel has to come off. Lots of info about the process in the 107 forum below. A search will bring up pictures and the procedure. Follow closely the procedures for deactivating the airbag.
