Removing the Steering Wheel - no swearing involved

Recently I had cause to remove my steering wheel. I struggled, and then did a search here for advice, most of which amounted to "get a bigger hammer."

Not being certified in the use of heavy equipment, instead I ordered an OTC model 7245 steering wheel puller for $25. It doesn't come with the proper size bolts for the Defender steering wheel, but some 4" long 1/4-28 hex bolts work fine. Had the wheel off in less than 30 seconds, without breaking so much as a sweat.

I just though I'd pass that along.
