Steering Wheel Stuck / High Beams Broke

Ok i have two issues that maybe some people have knowledge about...

I have part of the bolt from a steering wheel puller stuck in my steering wheel (damn advanced auto loaner tools). There's no threads, or anything else for that matter exposed to grab onto. I've tried with two ppl pulling the wheel, pb blasting the hell out of it, breaker bars, 'EZ' Outs on the bolt, and i cant get the damn thing off... Any idea's before i just get fed up and decide to just hook the steering wheel to a tree behind me, throw it in 4low and bail?

Also does anyone have a decent picture of how things are supposed to look under the little panel on the left side of steering column about 6 inches down from the wheel? When i pull the stalk that would toggle the high beams there is no resistance and i believe something came loose and would more than likely be under this panel.

Most steering wheels I have pulled were removed with a brass hammer.

Loosten the nut holding the wheel on (but don't remove it, just 2 or 3 threads loose), support the lower part of the wheel with your knees and grab the top of the wheel with your left hand.

Pull up with your knees and pull with your left hand. Then strike the nut sharply with the brass hammer. One or two licks usually frees the wheel.

Don't get carried away with the hammer, you can hit it too hard.

edit to add, did you pop the puller screw with a hammer after you tightened it down? This is usually needed to dislodge the wheel when using a puller.

No i didnt hit the puller screw with a hammer the time the puller broke off, it came off fine without doing so the first time so i didnt bother to the second, it could have helped for sure, but next time im just not going to use rental junk tools that just aren't made worth ****

thanks for the reply old4x
