None of them seem to say that the hole is covered and you have to feel very gently to find it. Then pierce the material with the aforementioned implement to pop off the bag.

The wheel nut will probably be king tight. Resist the temptation to use the steering lock to hold the wheel as you undo. 99 times out of 100 it won't matter, the 100th time the lock may give!

The wheel will probably be even tighter on the splines/shaft. Don't break your nose when it finally does come off!

Funny. On mine the nut came off easy and the wheel just slipped off its splines with no real effort. Was the easiest mod I ever did. Even my Gear knob swap took more effort!
