    Ah, that is good to know, so better take it off gently.

    Ron, once again I think that you cant hook up a VCIM in the SSV/PPV as there is no onstar to begin with , thus no wiring harness , for the same reason that you can't hook up your rear audio controls. The article you posted about adding Bluetooth is for earlier models that are equipped with onstar. No OnStar =no Bluetooth. please correct me if I am wrong.

    Also picking up a "steering wheel puller", I know.. I probably won't need it BUT, karma dictates when I don't have one, the steering wheel is stuck and I need one, then I have to drive all the way to town and back, and waste the money on gas. :)

    Do you need a steering wheel? I have one from an 08 Tahoe with cruise and audio controls and gloss black trim pieces. Comes with everything but the airbag

    @Ron C, just leave the nut on partway and wiggle the steering wheel loose; the nut will keep it from coming off completely. After the wheel breaks loose, remove the nut all the way.

    Hmm, that's an idea, why didn't I think of that? (I did buy a steering wheel puller a few days ago, so might as well use it). Just keep my fingers crossed the airbag doesn't act up. (I read to disconnect battery and let it sit for 15-30 mins)
