On my Pearson 323, access to the rudder post is by an aluminium deck port just behind the wheel, on the 'floor' in the middle of the cockpit. Easily recognised as it is (a) above the rudder where it hinges and (b) the port has two small recessed holes where a special "key" fits in to unscrew it. As arf145 said, the tiller itself is a substantial L-shaped aluminium tube, maybe 4' long (total), formed to a hex socket on one end to fit onto the rudder post. Check out the lazarettes - it is often buried in there (hopefully not buried too deep, 'cost when you need it, you really need it!!)
