Unhappy steering column rubber coupler replacement

Hi!
I stopped by the dealership to have my 2011 sonata GLS recent recall-serviced. The service manager recommended me to get mine urgently serviced of the above coupler replacement. Unfortunately do I have to pay all the expenses caused out of my pocket, for the reason of warranty expired. I've already noticed some problem of free play or movement of the steering wheel, but not too seriously annoying me. His quote shows, the part: $1.39, labor: $222.20, total $237.13 including taxes. He also explained this coupling-worn out problem is not related with the previous recall campaign of steering column. So....
I'd like to get it done by myself. My question is how I can access to this coupler 1)Remove steering wheel OR 2)Remove front knee panel OR the other step needed. I'd appreciate for some help in advance to give me some clue or explanation for this job. Thanks again for your help.

Hi,
My 2011 Sonata has the same problem and the Hyundai Service Manager recommended the same to me at a recent recall service. However, the quote I got was ~290$ plus tax. I went to Hyundai South. I am not a car person. So would like to get it done by a mechanic. Which Hyundai did you get a quote of 237.13 including taxes?

Thanks!

It's ridiculous that this part fails after 47K like on my car. This issue and the engine recall that still has not been fixed will make this the last Hyundai that I will ever purchase.
