Watch out for the airbag!

From the manual (which you should buy if you are going to do this job safely), you need to disconnect the battery and wait for a few minutes before attempting to work on the steering wheel. THEN you can remove the airbag, disconnect the horn and cruise control, remove the steering nut, use a puller to take off the steering wheel, reset the clockspring etc...

Not terribly difficult if you are comfortable working with the airbag, but also not something to do without the PICTURES in the manual.

Your safety is not worth $12 spent on Amazon for the old manual.

Remove the nut and the steering wheel comes off.AnswerAnd if you actually did mean -move wheel- rather than -remove wheel - not all the cars have a moveable steering wheel. As I recall, it was an option to have one that fully tilted and some packages only came with a height adjustable one.
