STEERING WHEEL REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Position the wheels in the straight ahead position.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the horn pad by unscrewing the two screws from the rear side of the steering wheel crossbar.
Punchmark the top of the steering column shaft and the steering wheel flange.
Remove the attaching nut and remove the steering wheel with a puller.

CAUTION
