The steering wheel is not supposed to SHINE with a high gloss or it would be too slick to keep a safe grip on. You should be able to get a dull shine however and can do so by using a little DAWN dishsoap in water or a mild degreaser to clean the wheel ( Think about all the fries and burgers you have eaten while you drive, that wheel is GREASY!)

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.

    I'd say $125.00 is a good price for a steering column.

    First, have to remove steering wheel (but I don't have instructions for the steering column. For that, maybe try alldata.com, but that will cost):

    STEERING Steering Wheel REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Without Air Bag EXCEPT F-SUPER DUTY STRIPPED CHASSIS MODELS AND MOTOR HOME CHASSIS MODELS Fig. 1: Remove the screws from behind the wheel - F-150 model without air bag 88288p12.jpg
    Fig. 2: Pull away the cover with the wiring still connected 88288p13.jpg
    Fig. 3: Disconnect the wiring at the steering wheel 88288p14.jpg
    Fig. 4: Matchmark the steering wheel 88288p15.jpg
    Fig. 5: Remove the center nut from the steering wheel 88288p16.jpg
    Fig. 6: Use a steering wheel puller to remove the wheel 88288p17.jpg
    Fig. 7: Remove the steering wheel from the shaft 88288p18.jpg
    Fig. 8: Correct steering wheel installation 84928058.gif
    NOTE: The factory recommends that the front wheels be set in the straight-ahead position and you paint or make chalk marks on the column and steering wheel hub for alignment purposes during installation. Of these two safeguards, it is more important to mark the column so even if the column is moved slightly, the steering wheel can still be repositioned in its original position.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the one screw from the underside of each steering wheel spoke, and lift the horn switch assembly (steering wheel pad) from the steering wheel. On vehicles equipped with the sport steering wheel option, pry the button cover off with a suitable prytool.
    3. Disconnect the horn switch wires at the connector and remove the switch assembly. On trucks equipped with speed control, squeeze the J-clip ground wire terminal firmly and pull it out of the hole in the steering wheel. Don't pull the wire out without squeezing the clip.
    4. Remove the horn switch assembly.
    5. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut and remove the steering wheel with a puller. WARNING
      Never hammer on the wheel or shaft to remove it! Never use a knock-off type puller.
    6. Install the steering wheel in the reverse order of removal. Tighten the shaft nut to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm)
    F-SUPER DUTY STRIPPED CHASSIS MOTOR HOME CHASSIS MODELS
    1. Set the front wheel in the straight-ahead position and make chalk marks on the column and steering wheel hub for alignment purposes during installation.
    2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    3. Remove the one screw from the underside of each steering wheel spoke, and lift the horn switch assembly (steering wheel pad) from the steering wheel.
    4. Disconnect the horn switch wires at the connector and remove the switch assembly.
    5. Remove the horn switch assembly.
    6. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut and remove the steering wheel with a puller. WARNING
      Never hammer on the wheel or shaft to remove it! Never use a knock-off type puller.
    7. Install the steering wheel in the reverse order of removal. Tighten the shaft nut to 30-42 ft. lbs. (41-57 Nm).
    With Air Bag Fig. 9: Remove the air bag module and disconnect the wiring harnesses 88288g00.gif
    CAUTION
    Read the air bag service precautions in Section 6 prior to doing work involving an air bag equipped steering column component. Always wear safety glasses when servicing an air bag vehicle and handling the air bag to avoid possible injury.
    1. Turn the front wheels to the straight-ahead position.
    2. Disconnect the battery-to-starter relay cable for at least one minute to let the air bag back-up power supply discharge.
    3. Remove the air bag module from the steering wheel (refer to Section 6).
    4. Disconnect the horn/speed control wiring from the steering wheel.
    5. Remove the steering wheel retaining bolt.
    6. Install the Differential Bearing Cone Remover/Replacer, No. T77F-4220B1, or equivalent, and remove the steering wheel. Route the contact assembly harnesses through the steering wheel as it is lifted off of the shaft. To install: NOTE: Make sure the front wheels are still in the straight-ahead position prior to installation.
    7. Route the air bag sliding contact wiring through the steering wheel at the 3 o'clock position. Position the steering wheel on the shaft an align the marks. Make sure not to pinch the contact wire. WARNING
      Make sure no air gets trapped between the steering wheel and air bag sliding contact.
    8. Install a new steering wheel retaining bolt, then tighten to 23-33 ft. lbs. (31-45 Nm).
    9. Connect the horn/speed control wiring and clip in place. Connect the air bag wire harness. Tighten the module retaining nuts to 35-53 inch lbs. (4-6 Nm). NOTE: When the battery cable has been disconnected, then reconnected, some abnormal driving symptoms may occur for the first 10 miles (16 km) until the PCM re-learns it adaptive strategy.
    10. Connect the battery to starter cable. Verify the air bag warning indicator light on the instrument panel.

    I have a wrecked 2006 PT Cruiser. How do I remove the driver's side airbag to replace?


    I assume that the airbag has been deployed,and you do not have a new one as of yet.Get your new one first and that will shine a light on how it goes in.Wife has a 01 PT and it just pushes in on two steel pins that come to a point.The pins have a grove in them that snaps into two retainer clips in the steering wheel.A word of advice...replace the retaining clips in the steering wheel as well.Wife had airbag replaced then months latter was hit from behind.Air bag flew out and rite up side the head.Trust me they are not light.Ended up in rear of car.Don't skimp like the body shop did.
