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.

How do you move the steering wheel on a 1998 C230 Mercedes like going up or down or high and low?

There are two small access holes on the backside of the steering wheel. They are a torx head, remove these screws (screws will stay inside of steering wheel, but must be loosened all the way) then pop the airbag off. You then will have a big Allen head nut holding the steering wheel on the steering shaft. 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. In both cases there is a lever near or along the steering column that allows the adjustment.

How do you take out airbag 1998 altima?

There are two 10mm bolts under the shroud surrounding the steering column directly behind the steering wheel. They go in on either side. You will see a small plastic cover either in the side of the shroud or, if you have steering wheel controls the plastic panel in the back of the steering wheel controls. Remove the panel and you will see the bolt heads, one on either side. Once you remove the bolts carefully pull the airbag away from the steering wheel and remove the small yellow plastic wire. By the way. Before you do any of that disconnect the battery and wait for about half an hour so you don't have residual electricity deploy the bag.
