    Thank you this was very helpful. The problem turned out to be the 2 bolts for the puller were too long and they bent when tightened i replaced 2 bolts with shorter ones and better bolts and it worked. Again thank you.

Ok, after you remove the pad in the center of the steering wheel, you will see a large nut in the center with a triangle shaped clip. Use a screwdriver to remove the clip and remove the nut from the steering shaft ( probably a 19mm-21mm or 3/4"-7/8" ) After you have this off, you set the pin of the puller in the dent of the steering shaft. Screw two bolts through the slots on the sides of the puller into the holes on either side of the shaft. When these bolts are tight, start to tighten the puller shaft until it starts to tighten against the bolts. Continue to tighten this down slowly. If you feel alot of resistance, you can bump the back of the steering wheel on either side to loosen it. Let me know if this helps :)

Remove steering wheel on 85 dodge diplomat


Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Remove the horn pad on the steering wheel-Phillips head screws from the back side of wheel. Then loosen the nut on the steering wheel center. Mark the steering wheel to column shaft position, so the wheel goes back in exact same position on the shaft. You may need a steering wheel puller to get the wheel off the shaft, not always, but sometimes the wheel is on pretty tight. Do not hammer on the wheel to get it off, use a puller if needed. These pullers are at parts stores and not expensive.

Chevrolet Truck Steering Wheel Removal Instruction


1 Turn the steering wheel from side to side until it locks into place. This will make the process a bit easier, as the wheel won't be turning as you work.<br /><br />2 Remove the horn button in the center of the steering wheel by pulling it off towards you. This will expose the steering wheel nut at the center.<br /><br />3 Unbolt the center bolt from the steering wheel, using the 1/2-inch ratchet, extension and socket. This might free the steering wheel right away, but most likely you'll have to proceed to the next step.<br /><br />4 Position the steering wheel puller on the steering wheel such that the center bolt on the puller is on the center shaft of the wheel. Then thread in the bolts supplied with the puller into the two threaded holes on either side of the center shaft on the wheel.<br /><br />5 Tighten down the center bolt on the steering wheel puller using the 1/2-inch ratchet and socket until the steering wheel pops free. Then remove the steering wheel puller from the steering wheel.

How to remove steering wheel, 2000 blazer


Parts stores sell an inexpensive steering wheel removal puller. Follow repair manual removal procedure, so the air bag doesn't activate. The steering wheel is retained by a large nut on the steering wheel shaft. Remove the nut, and attach the puller to wheel-it should pull right off.

2000 chevy how do you take out the steering column


Pull the air bag fuse...

Then get all that stuff on the steeringwheel (there is some philips head screws in the back side of the wheel)

When you get it off, there, you will see a nut, remove the nut, and you will need a steering wheel puller, to get it off. They cost about $10 at the auto parts store.
There is sets of bolts to bolt the puller to the steering wheel, and then put the long bolt through the center of the puller, and tighten it up, until the steering wheel comes off.

It's not hard to do, or require any special skills.

Can not take off the steering wheel on my 2004 e350 van, the puller i rented w the tabs (the screw bolts do not work) are just taking chunks out of the steering wheel. what can i do?


I think you have the wrong puller. The screws are not the right size. There are usually several sets
of screws with the steering wheel puller. Are you sure you are using the correct screws?

There are usually 2 sets of screws with the puller that are the same size, but have different
number of threads per inch. So check to make sure you are using the right screws with the puller.

Where did you rent the puller?

    How do i switch the key lock on the steering wheel on a 1993 gmc sierra


    You have to remove the steering wheel, Lock plate and turn signal switch. Then remove the key buzzer connector and then the bolt holding in the cylinder. It isn't real hard work, but you will need a steering wheel puller and a lock plate puller.
