1990 944S2 Instrument cluster removal

Electrical

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 S2; Year: 1990; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 112,000 when odometer failed;

I am going to pull the VDO gauge assembly to replace my apparent failed odometer drive gear. I don't see any typical speedometer cable entering the back of the guage assembly. Can I assume that the rotation is converted to current somewhere else and that the odometer is driven by an internal motor? Also, do I have to remove the steering wheel? It looks like I may not be able to pull the instrument cluster without pulling the steering wheel? FYI I know about disconnecting the battery 30+ mins and not reconnecting until all is assembled.
