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.

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.
