Steering Wheel Removal

Hi all, ripping my car apart today. Found lots of wires that have been cut, go no-where or put in by previous owners, slowing pulling them all out.
I need to remove the steering wheel, I've removed the 17mm nut and 2 washers but can't get it to come off. Is it just a case of beating it with a rubber mallet ? I've taken loads of these off before but never had one stick like this.
Thanks

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

done It, WD40 and left it for an hour. Gave it a belt and it come straight off.
Found that someone has buggered the horn loom in the past, putting new one in but can't use the button in the steering wheel. Off to buy new dash mounted button.
