Steering wheel removal
« on: October 24, 2021, 10:14:31 AM »
A big thanks to Bob Gaines, I was really struggling getting my steering wheel off, tried the knee pressure trick, latest was shoe strings attached to a a puller and many others with no success. Then ran across past post from Bob talking about using an air hammer. Finally came off!  Thanks!  That’s what makes the forums so great.

I don’t say enough how much I appreciate the help from those in this forum.  I don’t post many questions, but have had countless questions answered by the postings from Bob, Jeff, Pete, Charles, Jim, and the rest of you. Thank you from me, too.  Deeply grateful.

Sorry to hear the shoelaces didn't work for you, but glad to hear you got it off.

That’s ok. I appreciate your idea and thought it would work.  It was really stuck on there!  Nice to meet you. Great car!

Nope. As unbelievable as it sounds, there are no threaded holes to attach the puller.  Hence all the questions regarding the removal of this wheel.

Just don’t forget to leave the nut on “loosely” while you work the  wheel loose unless you have GREAT dental insurance and/or enjoy pain….just sayin…. :'(
