First disconnect the battery cables. 2. wait approx 3-5 minutes then There are 3 bolts holding the steering wheel on in the back of the wheel. Locate and remove. After that Be EXTREMELY CAREFUL on disconnecting the airbag plugs. After you remove that there will be a huge bolt in the middle remove that. Then go to an auto parts store and ask for a crowfeet steering removal tool. Then put the screws through the holes. 1 on top other bottom. then put the big screw through the middle and turn it counterclockwise until you hear a pop. After you hear a pop the wheel will be disconnected. Be very careful not to damage the clockspring. The wheel is now disconnected.
