DISCONNECT BATTERY FIRST. Let set for about 20 minutes or so. This is to make sure no residual power left in system. Next remove air bag. Usually two screws holding it in from the back of the steering wheel. Remove the connector. There is probably a large nut. Remove the nut. Then you should be able to use some type of bolt puller or steering wheel puller to remove it.

DISCONNECT BATTERY FIRST ! This way it makes safe the airbag so it wont hurt you if it goes off. There are screws behind the wheel you unscrew to remove the centre airbag assembly and expose the large nut that secures the wheel to the steering shaft. Remove it then you will need a steering wheel puller, (a tool you can rent from some auto parts houses and can certainly buy for around $50) to remove the wheel. Dont try and beat the wheel with a hammer, you will certainly damage the wheel and also run the risk of accidently smashing plastic dash or steering column parts, and as the wheel has been on since new, it wont come off without a puller.

Okay a Mazda and a Ford pick up are basically the same thing so first check the top part of the cover directly behind the steering wheel. If there is a small removable cover there, remove it and look inside. You should see a what appears to be a small bolt going straight down. As you turn that bolt it will gradually force the steering wheel off. If you don't have the small cover, there are four small bolts on the back side of the steering wheel to remove the air bag. Once the airbag is off you will see a large nut that has to be removed. Once removed you will need a steering wheel puller to force it off.

Start with the front wheels in the straight ahead position. Disconnect the battery then go for coffee to let the system discharge, this is so the air bag does not go off in your face. Remove the steering wheel centre and air bag screws from the rear of the steering wheel. Remove the air bag. Remove the nut retaining the steering wheel to the shaft. Unplug all wiring that is still attached, be careful to not break the special latches. Use a special steering wheel puller set to remove the wheel. The clock spring should now be exposed and the replacement straight forward. When plugging and unplugging be careful with the latches. Reassembly is reverse of disassembly.

I have a similar problem. Once in a while I can't turn the key to the start position. I have found that turning the key towards the acccessory position first releases the key cylinder. Apparently this is a quirk of the '99 windstar. Carl
