The PO had stuck screws in the hazard switch and turn signal lever. That meant no wipers. I have had the steering wheel off before, but was not ready to work on the other stuff. Simple stuff taking a steering wheel off and putting one back on.

I have tried now, 3x to get the wheel of, using two different pullers. One just bends the bolts when you wrench down on it. At this point, I am no sure it wouldnt be easier to just go get an s10 steering column from a junk yard.

Ever had a steering wheel refuse to budge? What could the problem be?

I have no idea what is holding the wheel on other than did the PO use something else to hold it in place or is it just rusted on. Hard to believe a puller was bending and the wheel won't come off. You are in deep well I not much help other than take a look it will be something stupid I am sure. If not PB Blaster on the wheelshaft and see if that helps. Best I got.

I have had the wheel off before! Simple stuff. This time, it will not budge. Never seen anything like it. I trashed the steerning column trying, I think. now has a slight grinding feel when turning the wheel. Oh well. The other one will be here today.

Put the puller on it and tighten it up then pop it with a sharp smack from a hammer. The jolt should make it pop off.

Goatman, i did that, repeatedly. I tried rocking it, popping towards dash, away from dash, pb blaster, etc. i treid heat on the wheel. I picked up a used one today. I am just going to swap them.
