The car is a '94 Chevy prism. I'm going to have to change the ignition, and I can't unscrew the screws to take off the covers without moving the steering wheel.

To remove the steering wheel, you need to remove the airbag. If I'm not mistaken, those screws are on the side of the steering wheel. (two 30 torx screws), then you can remove the airbag adn have access to the steering wheel nut. (don;t forget to mark the shaft & wheel before you take the wheel off. It can go on in any postion so your wheel will be off if you don;t mark it.
let me know if we're on the right track here
