Default removing steering wheel.

You guys had me real worried about replacing steering wheel on my club car ds
I saw threads about guys attacking it with angle grinders and dismantling whole column from cart.
When I arrived home from golf,I got large lump hammer piece of 1 inch dia,brass rod,removed nut and washer give it good squirt of graphol and before replacing nut I give the wheel a few twists left and right,stuck my feet on dash grabbed wheel and give it an almighty yank{no pun intended} and bloody near broke my nose with wheel.I still don't know if I was happy it came off so easy,or cranky cause I nearly broke nose.

Mine came off easy as well. It's just the luck of the draw so to speak.

I fought with mine the other day while installing a dash cover. Maybe I should have read the forum for advice before I just cut the bottom piece off of the dash and "Laissez les bon temps rouler". It still bothers me that I never got it off and I WILL get it off one day soon, but I was just a little more interested in drinking beer that day.

Had to use a gear puller on the steering wheel of my '85 DS. It extended the core of the wheel a good .25" before the rust bond was broken. I didn't think plastic could do that!

Gorno speaker of plastic,I thought the column cover was metal painted with enamel,until I slipped it off.

I just replaced my wheel and column cover this past week. One short pop with a dead blow hammer from underneath and it came right off.
