    got a steering wheel puller and something called a lock plate remover...

    the lock plate remover is broke, and the steering wheel puller bolts wont fit in the holes they are supposed to

    no...rather one of them will and the other one wont.

    loosen the bolts that hold the steering wheel down, and beat around the rim of the wheel with your hands til they get red, should come loose...

    Dude, the steering wheel puller should be a breeze to use. You shouldn't have to do any banging or anything. It should have all different sizes of bolts for your application. If you rented it from an auto parts store, some may be missing. You may be better off just buying one that Grant makes. It should have all of them. By the way, you don't have to remove the lock-plate if you are just changing your wheel. Hope this helps.

    Oh, and you should be using 3 bolts at the holes where the original screws for the horn go. And one larger bolt in the center of the puller. This is the one you tighten to break the sterring wheel loose.

    long story short...i broke 2 pullers, and we wound up pulling the wheel while a guy used a sledge on the center and it popped right off...
