Cannot remove steering wheel

I have a 1999 Daewoo Lanos and my mechanic cannot remove the steering wheel. The nut holding the wheel on has been removed yet the steering wheel will not budge. A great amount of force was used as was a pulley from GM. Help!!! I want to install a sports steering wheel.

    Just read this with google - you need to remove the steering wheel and the wheel lock collar then
    remove the signal switch plate.....on the left side of the steering
    shaft there is a single screw remove it and the ignition switch will
    slide out

    first remove steering wheel cowling. 3 screws underneath, and 1 either
    side of the steering wheel.(turn the wheel both left, and right to get
    these, they will prob have plastic caps covering the heads)

    then remove the speedo surround, 1 screw at the top centre (above the
    milage reset pin) and a screw either side of the steering wheel.

    then screw either side of the speedo body, and thats it.

How do I take off steering wheel on my 1999 nissan pathfinder

A steering wheel is not an easy job. First remove the battery earth cable.

Be very careful that you don't activate the airbag while you're working. Remove the screws that hold the center pad to the steering wheel from the back of the steering wheel. Slowly move the airbag out and undo the wires.

Now the steering wheel shaft should be exposed with the nut that holds the wheel in place. Loosen the nut but do not remove it completely, leave it on the shaft.

This is the difficult bit. Grab hold of the steering wheel and pull real hard on it until it moves up against the nut. It might feel as if you are going to break the wheel, but it is not easy to do. Just keep at it until it comes loose. Now remove the nut completely and pull the steering wheel out.

the pulley nut comes off by turning it to the left yes counter clockwise and all you need is a steering wheel puller in most cases the pulley comes out by prying on it on one side with hand and tapping the opposite side with brass hammer.

Severe bearing noise from front wheel bearing/cv joint area.Cv joint still lubricated,I tend to think axle support bearing is dry & on the way out,but only assuming.How does front wheel bearing come out of...

you have to replace bearing and hub as a have to remove remove brakes and caliper rotor set them aside dont disconnect brake line. get a piece of clothes rack wire to hold brake caliper .do not let it hang by brake hose. you got to remove hub nut. best way to do that is loosen it a litttle while tire still on weight of car keep wheel from turning .

A clacking or popping noise on turns means one of the CV joints is bad. A scraping sound means you need to oil the steering wheel support bearing, or maybe something like loose change fell between the steering shaft and collum.
