If your steering is worn-out and you would like to replace it, the following how-to will help you achieve that. Very simple to do.
Step 1: Disconnect the battery
Step 2: Unscrew this 10MM nut and one more on the opposite side.
Step 3: The airbag will now be able to come off, but be careful and be slow. If you man-handle the airbag, it can possibly knock you in the face. There are two connectors attached to the airbag. Disconnect the two wires as shown.
Step 4: You will need this tool to complete the job. This can be either bought or rented from any of the big 3 auto chain stores. Under $30 bucks.
Step 5: Take off the center nut first. It will have some torque to it so don’t be afraid to give it some strength. After you take the center nut off, you will see two threads (marked by the white arrows). That is where you will place the two bolts that come in your puller kit.
After the puller kit is in place, just ratchet away and the steering wheel will pop off. When placing on the replacement wheel, you will see a notch in the center of the steering wheel and another small notch on the steering wheel thread. These notches need to be lined up when inserting the new steering wheel or your steering wheel will be crooked.
DONE! And that is it for this DIY. Tit’s simple and straight forward. If you are doing this for the first time, it should not exceed longer than an hour.
