|2.||Disconnect the cruise control set/resume switch connector (if equipped) (A) and horn switch connector (B).|
|3.||Loosen the steering wheel bolt (C).|
|4.||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.
|5.||Remove the steering wheel puller, then remove the steering wheel bolt and steering wheel from the steering column.|
