Please take a look at the image below.
After your remove the bolt and washer, that secures your steering wheel, to your steering shaft, you can use a rubber mallet to tap up on your steering wheel.
There are splines on your steering shaft, and your steering wheel. Just in case some rust is on the splines, it will be great if you use a lubricant, or penetrating oil.
You will not have to re-align your splines during re-assembly. We can continue from here. Thanks!
