Smile Steering wheel removal r32??

Hi guys was looking for a pointer, I'm quite spanner savy but never taken Off and replaced a steering wheel, so rather than lunch something I thought I'd ask before I start, how do you remove and replace an r32 GTR steering wheel???

Straighten the wheels.
Carefully prise out the horn button, disconnect the wiring.
Undo the nut but do not remove completely yet.
Pull steering wheel towards you sharply until it hits the nut you left on,(or if you ignored me, it hits you in the face lol)
Now remove nut and wheel

Ah brill, thank you very much for posting that. (I guessed that was about right but always best to check)

what do you need to torque the nut up to when butting the wheel back on...

Don't turn the steering angle sensor whilst the wheel is off, or it can break when put back on (If not in correct position).
