Remove the screws holding the center part of the wheel to the actual wheel, loosen the nut holding the actual wheel down to the steering column, keep the bolt on a tiny bit then just reef on it till it pulls out. Nut being partially on protects you from getting a face full of steering wheel when it finally comes loose.

It doesn't matter how many times you've done it and are expecting it and trying to be careful, it'll always happen....always...

First off does your SW have an air bag if so disconnect it or you could get hurt real bad. Secondly, I found having one person keep a steady pull on the wheel while you give the center shaft a whack with a hammer usually works.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
