Changing out Turn signal switch on my Ford

I need to change my turn signal switch but I can't get the steering wheel off. I got the horn and middle part off and took of the nut that was on there but it still won't come off. Its an 89 f-150. Could anyone help?

go to the parts store and buy yourself a steering wheel puller.>$12 at oreillys
or you can find a puller kit that would pull several different things, steering wheels, harmonic balancers, etc.....for just a little more...... where 'bouts in tx are you? close to crockett?

I don't understand why you took the whole column apart. Normally you only have to take the steering wheel off to get to the switch. The wirees are fed up through the other stuff. Also don't understand why you would need to re-wire the brake light switch either. Maybe you should have posted what the problem is. That could have saved you some trouble.

i took off the steering wheel but the part that plugs into the dash is too big to get inside the column while all the pices are one there.
