Re: Steering wheel removal...Need HELP!!

I am really not sure where you are having a problem since it's such a simple operation.

1) Undo the 2 bolts
2) Disconnect the airbag(orange connector) and the ground connector


3) Undo the main nut
4) Disconnect airbag connector from the slip ring.


5) That's it

I got it unhooked from the airbag, but it's attached to the main shaft AND weaved through the wheel itself! Does anyone know how I can remove this without cutting the wire itself?? I sat there for 30mins and couldn't figure it out. What am I missing here?

Here's a pic of the steering wheel I'm having trouble removing in case you can help if you've done it before...





oh btw....am I the only one who absolutely HATES removing the cover from that style of steering wheel? I had to use a dental mirror just to see what size torx bit to use! what a pain in the ass!
