steering wheel removall

Can someone tell me how to go about removing the steering wheel on my 146 its the 1700 on a p reg and has got an airbag.
It went in to have a new trackrod put on and came back with the wheel offcenter.

Thanks in advance.

In your case the answer is: Take it back to the garage and tell them to put it right. It sounds like they've replaced the trackrod with the wheels centred and the steering wheel not. It's possible you could fix this at the steering wheel end, but what really needs doing is the trackrod dis-connecting again, everything centred, then them re connecting. They should do this for free, since they basically haven't done their job correctly in the first place.

do not take the steering wheel off ! THE BAG MAY EXPLODE !!!!
try adjusting the steering rods (left and right) to get the wheel right. A bit of a hassle and indeed better to have the garage do it.
