I am trying to remove the steering wheel. I don't want to pry and break steering head. I need direction. Any help,tips pointers greatly appreciated.

Loosen but don't take off the nut. I put a little Liquid Wrench on, wedge my knee under one side of the steering wheel and pulling on the opposite side with my left hand. Hit the shaft and it should pop loose. Done it a million times this way.

You might want to try a puller, which puts a more even pull on the wheel. Most tool rental places have them or auto parts stores. Do leave the nut on a few threads,as suggested in the previous post, this will keep the wheel from poping off at you when it does break loose. Hope this helps.

I Outraged mentioned leaving the nut on but loose serves to keep the wheel from flying off but also protects the shaft threads when tapping with a hammer. I happen to have a brass hammer which helps to protect the threads but it's not that necessary.

In the style of those American Express commercials:

--Teleflex steering gear: $200
----Grant steering wheel: $85
------Cheap Made-in-China gear puller: $7

Using the right tool: priceless
