Taking Apart Steering Wheel

Hey guys (and gals - if applicable)...

Anywhoo...I found out my gear shifter is bad since I keep getting (repeat gear selection) error when I stop.

I already ordered the part and hopefully I can tackle this and my headlights (magnetic cleaning - ill try) BUT how do I take the steering wheel apart?? I'm just looking to take apart the steering wheel to replace this gear shifter.

Please help!!! Thanks!!!
