Helm removal

Hoping someone knows the right technique to remove a Yacht Services Co helm on my Challenger 32. It looks just like an Edson setup. There is a notch in the hub and I can see a key recessed about 1/2" back. Problem is the rear of the hub is solid and I can see no way for the wheel to come forward without the rear contacting the key, and there isn't a channel from the key to the front of the spline to allow key removal first.
Any advice would be appreciated.
