Removing Steering Wheel

I need to remove the steering wheel (aftermarket, no air bag)to replace the combination switch. How difficult is it? And are there any helpful hints that could save me a lot of trouble? Thanks

Not hard. There is a big nut in the middle and you will need a steering wheel removal tool. Like 20 at Harbor Freight.

The windshield wiper and turn signal mulitfuntion switches need the steering wheel taken off. You can get cheap steering wheel pullers at NAPA or Auto Zone.

What ^ said. When I replaced my clockspring Advance Auto around here let me take it off right in the parking lot with their removal tool free for nothin'. Sure you need to remove it?

Be sure to mark it for centering the wheel on the bolt, otherwise when you reinstall it you'll be doing it again.
