No. You can remove the entire column with the steering wheel still attached.

Usually, the bolt to remove the steering wheel from the column is located at the point where it attached to the column. If your steering wheel has a pressure switch for the city horn located in the center of the steering wheel, you'll have to remove it to access that bolt.

The plastic cover around your 1996 Oldsmobile Are Aurora steering column is held in place with retaining clips. Pry outward on each retaining clip and the plastic cover will come off.

Remove the lower dash panel and steering column cover. Disconnect all harnesses going to the column. There is a metal bracket attached to the steering column with brass-colored bolts, and attached to the underside of the dash with chrome-colored bolts. Remove only the chrome bolts. They're fairly long. Once completely removed, the entire steering column will drop slightly. Now pull back the plastic boot from the bottom of the steering column and look for the small bolt securing it in place. I believe it is 11mm. Loosen the bolt only enough for the column to slide out.

Unplug the wiring harness from the steering column. Remove the cover plate under the column. Remove shift linkage. Remove two bolts under the dash that hold the column up. Remove the two nuts that connect the column to the steering knuckle. Slide it out.
