What? You had the wheel off but now you only want to remove it one time? I'm totally confused.
Steering wheel removal does not affect other parts at all. The spline is clearly marked with the steering shaft. Use a good puller.
And yes, that cancelling 'C' is not welded or glued. It's simply an open piece of rolled steel. It may be turned or it slides off. You may have turned it inadvertently the last time you had your steering wheel off. - Dave
