Pop the horn pad off, theres one or two screws on the back depending on model year. Loosen nut on steering shaft(don't take it all the way off yet). Try rocking the wheel back and forth while pulling. this will usually get the wheel off. If not, you can borrow a wheel puller from autozone. Getting the remainder of the switch assy swapped out is a bit of a jigsaw puzzle. Not real difficult, but hard to explain the steps. I found that lowering the steering column helped gain access to the column switches etc.. Its held up by a couple of bolts on a cross brace. Good luck.

thanks for the info, exactly what i needed :) if for no other reason, i want the wheel off for the extra space (not much to begin with) to fiddle, but it does look like i'll need to pull it anyway for what i wanna do.. also, is the wireing diagrams for the stereo on this sight at all? i'm gettin a cd player later this weekend from a buddy and dont want to have it hook it straight to the battery with a kill switch like i did in my honda because i couldnt figure out the wireing, lol
