To make it easier the next time, I used a file to eliminate the 
groove. The grove was only in a small place in the top center which 
is shaped to keep the IC in place. Once it was smoothed rather than 
grooved, the IC is able to pull out quite readily (just like I recall 
it doing 8 years ago before I started the "dashboard pounding"). No, 
I didn't remove the steering wheel.
