Steering Wheel Removal
SRS components are located in this area. Review the SRS component locations,
and the precautions and procedures
before performing repairs or service.
|1.||Make sure you have the anti-theft codes for the radio, then write down the audio presets.|
|2.||Make sure the ignition switch is OFF, then disconnect the negative cable from the battery.|
|4.||Disconnect the cable reel subharness connector (A).|
|5.||Loosen the steering wheel bolt (B).|
|6.||Install a commercially available steering wheel puller (A) on the steering wheel (B). Free the steering wheel from the steering column shaft by turning the pressure bolt (C) of the puller.|
Note these items when removing the steering wheel:
- Do not tap on the steering wheel or the steering column shaft when removing the steering wheel.
- If you thread the puller bolts (D) into the wheel hub more than five threads, the bolts will hit the cable reel and damage it. To prevent this, install a pair of jam nuts five threads up on each puller bolt.
|7.||Remove the steering wheel puller, then remove the steering wheel bolt and steering wheel from the steering column.|
