Hi, 1st you need to take off the steering wheel, if the horn does not just pop off, check for 3 torque bit 8mm at the back of the steering wheel, they could be star point screws, depending on where is was built. be sure your wheels are true straight, and lock ignition so wheel not turn, it makes it easier to put the s wheel on true again, With the nut keeping the s wheel on, just crack it a little, then with a brass drift, give it a good hard quick hit, as its on a spicket & can cold freeze on, some come off easy, but what ever you do, don't flog nut with hammer, use brass as its softer than tempered steel,
Once you have s wheel off, 3 screws under the column, 2 one side of the tilt lever & one the other side, make sure u note which one come out of what holes, as they differ in length, then pop off the top plastic cover, ( un clip airbag wire from horn pad, ), no need to disable battery), once both cover are off, you will see 2 screws holding the ignition lock in place, could be torque head, or just a 8 mm nut,) unclip the plugs, and take out , do the reverse to fit back together, if you source on from Auto Wreckers, make sure it has the correct key, to suit that ignition, as they are coded, Good luck

I have a mazda bravo 2 wheel drive ute I can start car and press in clutch place in gear and release clutch and take of but then can change into next gear and with foot on clutch the car still moves

This sounds like the clutch, at the engine end, has a problem. The clutch plate might not be releasing correctly. When the engine is Off the clutch isn't spinning so doesn't affect the gear change. You might need to have the clutch replaced.
Your only sensible option is to get a Good Mechanic to remove the gearbox and inspect the clutch parts.
This, unfortunately, will not be a cheap fix.

Hi I have a mazda bounty/bravo 2005 2.5 td wl engine. The engine has a a slight tapping noise once it reaches operating is more noticeable at idle. I have done the tappets to spec but that didn't...

First I'd put a manual oil pressure gauge on it to verify it's holding proper pressure. If it passes the test it could be as simple as a collapsed oil filter or possibly a bad lifter.

Strange Problem Bravo Ute Air Conditioning

the blower motor has no affect on the AC system,
start the engine and turn on AC and watch the AC compressor to see if clutch engages,if it doesn't the system isn't full,if you are correct the clutch should be engaged and should quit when you change heater speeds,
