Re: How do i take off the steering wheel in my Corsica?
You need a steering wheel puller to take it off. You may be able to rent one but they are not that expensive to buy. It looks like a Y shaped piece of metal with a slot in the tail and 3 slots in the Y end. It has a large bolt in the center and an assortment of bolts in different sizes to bolt it to the steering wheel. The steering wheel has bolt holes beside the center nut for these bolts.
Once you get it hooked up and tightened up give the large center tightening bolt a sharp rap with a hammer and then tighten it again. You will likely have to do this 2 or 3 times before the wheel comes off. Hope this helps.

use a screwdriver to remove the screws that attach the horn to the wheel and disconnect the horn then loosen off the large centerbolt, then use a steering wheel puller to remove the wheel from its hub.
its not really hard ,remove horn cover and horn assembly you'll see a wire and unplug it and remove 3 screws holding grounding ring, now remove nut holding wheel on , you want to mark it in a way you will know where to aline it when putting it back on ,now use a steering wheel puller with extracting bolts and tighten center bolt to remove wheel that's it.
the center section where the horn button is should slide out with some resistance. then one large nut holds the steering wheel on usually accompanied by 2 or 3 small bolts to hold the horn actuator down. it takes a gear puller to actually remove the steering wheel. as for the steering column itself it's a conglomeration of lag screws and plastic covers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You need to rent a steering wheel puller or just buy one. Part stores should have both situations available.Remove center cover and the plate will bolt in to the two screw holes in center. The large center bolt will screws inward and pushed the wheel off evenly. Don't forget to remove the center nut on the wheel before you begin.
Are you speaking of the horn? Or the horn relay? Or the horn button? Or the horn button split ring armature? To remove the horn assembly in the steering wheel you will need a steering wheel puller and a U shaped clamp that will screw down to the steering bolt you will need a 3/4 socket with a 3-inch extension and a ratchet. You will also need to picks to pull center snap ring off to get to the parts under the plate for the horn. To remove you will need to buy 2 security nuts tork wrenches #8 I believe, you will have to disconnect the battery before working on it as the bag could explode if you do not have the battery disconnected. After removing the positive side of battery cable wait 5 minutes before proceeding. Then remove the two bolts that hold the front horn assembly and air bag from the rear of the steering wheel next remove horn air bag assembly and disconnect the wire for the air bag. Place horn to the side then remove the 3/4 bolt out from the center, next install steering wheel puller on the steering wheel and put in three bolts and tighten them evenly so that the puller is on straight. Screw center bolt into the steering bolt until the wheel comes loose, remove steering wheel and place it at the side, next use the U shaped clamp to press the center plate down 1/4 inch to be able to clear the snap ring around the steering wheel. With one pick hold the ring in place with the other force it between the steering wheel bolt and work the ring up and out of the grove it sits in. Next work it all the way up till you have it in your hand, and do not lose. Now pull plastic plate off if you put the wheels straight then it will go on the same way you pulled it off because it's keyed mark it with a felt tip pen so you don’t have to hassle with keying it in again. Next remove the plate and there you will find the horn contacts and the round disk that the connectors push against, so if you need more info just ask on this post.
Replace your headlight switch. You need torx bits, a steering wheel puller, and bolts to perform the repair.
Disconnect your negative battery cable and wait at least 1 minute before going any further (this insures your airbags are disabled if your vehicle has them).
Remove the plastic covers that cover the steering colum. If applicable, remove the airbag from the steering wheel; if you don't have a airbag pull the horn switch from the center of the steering wheel. Remove the retaining clip from the center shaft in the steering colum. Remove the bolt that holds the steering wheel, then use a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. Remove the torx screws from the headlight switch, and remove the electrical connectors. Install in reverse.
I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
