Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
Hi this is normally done by removing the cap to gain access to the large nut under it, then using a soft hammer or mallet ( or even a piece of hard wood) hit the stem that the nut was on and the washer under it will pop off, you will have to get a friend to pull at the same time you hit, but be careful as my friend lost a tooth as he pulled it to hard and came off and hit him in the face so please take care doing this...hope this helps

On the back of your steering wheel is four Phillips head screws (bolts)which holds the outer cover in place on the spokes.
Once the outer cover is off, you'll see a big nut. Remove the nut, which usually requires you to lock down the steering wheel some how (a piece of pipe thru the spokes works). Some times you can just yank it off the shaft, but not very often. You might have some luck with a deadblow hammer on the back side, but you can damage or bend it. Most times you'll need a puller, which only takes a couple of turns to free it from corrosion, then it pops loose.
This will expose the heads of three machine bolts. Put a socket on the back and take them out.
Most unbolt from behind with 4 bolts. If you are referring to the steering shaft from the steering wheel unscrew the nut on the shaft. Don't take the nut all the way off. Place a flat or ball peen hammer on the shaft with the handle under the rim of the wheel. While prying up with the hammer strike the first hammer with another hammer. Wheel should come right off. When replacing put a thin coat of grease on the shaft.
Please accept the solution if it’s helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.
