Remove steering wheel with a radio control next to it

I try to remove steering wheel on my 99 sienna. There is a radio control module on the left of steering column, it is fixed to the column by a single torx screw, I loosened it, but it did not come off, I don't know what is the locking mechanism behind, so not know towards which direction I should pull/pry it off. To the left, straight up, towards driver's face, or where? Thanks!

I have my code but dont know how to put it in my 2006 Chevrolet radio


This is easy, you will need a 7mm socket. To the right of your radio you will see the end of the square trim bezel around the radio, air bag switch, hvac controls ect, start by pulling firmly on that panel, you'll then start pulling toward the drivers door carefully getting the panel looser and looser, drop your steering wheel down with the adjuster on the bottom left of the steering column and remove the panel, next remove the 2 7mm screws on the left of the radio and the 1 7mm on the right of the radio, remove the radio and electrical connections, reverse for install.

99 Acura RL 3.5 horn does not work


You have a defective part called a clock spring contact under the steering wheel, this contact is a coiled up simi rigid plastic ribbon with circuits embedded in it, after many years they l break and you loose the connection from the steering wheel controls (radio) and the Airbag. You must disarm the airbag on the steering wheel and remove it and replace the clock spring contact drum under the wheel, the cost is about $300.00

I cannot figure out how to pull the steering wheel off of my 96 honda accord


Read this carefully, in total, before you begin.

With car wheels aimed straight ahead, disconnect the neg. battery terminal (if you have an anti-theft radio, make sure you have the code, because you will need it.)

Wait three minutes before proceeding to allow the airbag’s backup power supply to be depleted.

Remove the access plate from the lower steering column cover and remove the short connector from the access plate (the short connector is stowed on the inside of the access plate. It is a little device that is used especially for this purpose)

Unplug the airbag module-to-cable reel connector (yellow) and plug the short connector into the airbag module side of this connection to disable the airbag.

Remove the access panels from each side of the back of the steering wheel cover, then remove both of the torx screws (you’ll need a torx screwdriver) that retain the airbag module to the steering wheel.

Pull the module off the steering wheel and CAREFULLY set it aside with the trim side facing up.

Unplug the electrical connector for the horn, and, if you have it, for the cruise control.

Remove the steering wheel retaining nut. Paint or scribe a mark indicating the relationship of the steering wheel hub to the steering shaft.

Remove the steering wheel with a steering wheel puller. DO NOT turn the steering shaft while the steering wheel is removed. If you do so, the airbag reel could be damaged.

Reinstallation is the reverse of the removal, making sure the cable reel is centered with the car wheels straight ahead (if you haven't moved the shaft, that should not be a problem), and making sure that the locating pins on the steering column engage the holes in the back of the steering wheel. Put the nut back. Torque it (36 ft. lbs). Reconnect horn and cruise control. Replace airbag, tighten torx screws. Reconnect airbag and put short connector back in access plate. Reconnect neg. battery cable.

Hope this helps you.
