    How to remove steering wheel

    From a 650. I went to borrow a service manual from a friend and it turned out to be an owners manual. So now I have started this project without a reference. I am planning to purchase a service manual but for now if I can get the steering wheel off that will get me a little further along. I am assuming that there is a method to remove it in a way to not break the steering wheel.

    Loosen the nut but let it on so it's flush the the shaft to protect the threads.

    The. Get an air hammer or rivet gun and pound on it while using you knees to pry up on the wheel. Took me about five minutes to get mine of my 955 this way. It's also what the tech at he dealer said to do.

    The service manual isn't any help. It just says remove steering wheel.

    Usually a standard steering wheel puller tool will do the trick. Did JD give you any threaded holes next to the main nut to attach the tool?
    A picture would help.

    That was the problem on my 955. The wheel is all rubber and plastic by the hub. No place to attach the puller to.

    There are holes but no threads.

    Could you tap them or get a nut on the back side?

    I should have taken a picture. The metal with the holes is no thicker than a flat washer. Not enough to thread for sure. Good idea though. Also it is not accessable from the back side.

    Footy, I used J3 Driver's suggestion on our 650. Sort of need two people though.

    I tried the air hammer while pulling up on the wheel. I was not successful. I then tried a puller and it was off in less than 1 minute.
