SOURCE: need to remove steering wheel

Disconnect the battery. Remove the 2 "Torx" screws that hold the horn pad/air bag assembly on to the wheel (there may be 2 small trim covers that you may need to remove to see the "Torx" screws. Remove the horn/air bag assembly & disconnect it at where it connects. You will now see a really large nut. Remove it, and bang back towards the dash, both sides, to pop the steering wheel off.
You do not need a puller.
NOTE: Do NOT turn the circular object that is right behind the steering wheel. This is the "clock spring". It is black & yellow, and has a lot of writing on it. If you turn it, you may damage it when you put it all back together and then drive it.

SOURCE: Steering wheel locked in place, key will not turn...

Very likely the steering thrust stored in the tires attempting to turn back is forcing excessive tension against the steering lock.

Try (very hard) to turn the steering wheel either direction while turning the key gently.

If that solves it you can avoid this by letting go of the steering after stopping to park, turn off the ignition slowly (engine off, pause, then key out). This will ensure that the steering wheel comes to rest prior to locking the column.

What should we do?


Hi there,
There is a (silly) safety lock on the ignition to stop it starting in gear, or the key being removed if not in park, and a sensible safety lock on the gear shift to stop kids letting it roll down a hill. Try putting your foot firmly on the brake, press the park release button beside the gear shift, while pulling the shifter out of park and back into park.
Getting the key out: Sometimes the steering wheel is placing pressure on the steering lock and key release mechanism, so try turning the steering wheel in any direction it can go while trying to release the key. It should come only out when you are in park.

Cant turn my 2003 toyota 4 runner to left or right


with the wheels on the ground, if you pull really hard on the steering wheel will the wheels turn?

Since you already replaced the pump the only thing left is the rack and pinion.

I have a 2000 toyota corolla and the key will only turn to acc. We have tried the other key. The stering wheel is unlocked. We have jiggled the shifter to make sure it is in park.


See if you turn the wheel and try to turn the key at the same time if it releases. We might get a free spot where the key should turn. The lock may be in a bind and pressure on it may release it.
Clean and lubricate the lock cylinder. Electric cleaner to flush the dirt and liquid graphite to lubricate. A substitute for the electric cleaner is a spray of isoprophyl alcohol.
You may also need to tap the assembly for the ignition switch to release the mechanical parts. See if you can get the cover of the steering column off to gain access to the ignition switch assembly.
Check also if the spare does the same, other wise the key may have deformed.

Steering wheel lock up


There is a factory saftey recall for this year range of toyota 4 runner having to do with the steering sy stem. Apparently, turning the steering wheel while the vehicle is not running can possibly fracture an intermediate steering column shaft and it could possibly break while driving. Contact your local dealer with vin # !

2002 4Runner locked steering wheel


Try jerking the steering wheel as your turn the key. Sometimes when you park and the wheel locks up you have to play with it to get it unlocked.
