This post has been extremely helpful, but can anyone tell me how to remove the electrical harness from the back of the IS!. I have everything else done, but can't get the ism out became I can't figure out how to release the electrical harness from the back.

Step 2: There were no torx screws here, so I skipped this step.

Step 5: Apparently not relevant to the manual transmission.

Steps 9-12: I didn't perform these as there was enough play in the center console at this point that the ISM could be easily removed. This is a compromise between MyersGraphics instructions on this page, and the abbreviated instructions that dzlsabe and jcliff posted at

I have seen people post that the Steering Lock Malfunction can be fixed with a new battery, or buy cleaning the contacts on the ISM. I charged my battery at the same time I was removing, cleaning and replacing the ISM, so I am not sure which solved the problem, but it appears to have gone away.
