Re: Help! Steering wheel removal

If you have a limited that did not have the heated wheel, can you add one?

Re: Help! Steering wheel removal

Yeah the Hex can be no fun - If you are having trouble holding the steering wheel straight I saw another writeup where they tied a loop around the bottom spoke of the wheel with a tie down strap or similar and then tie a loop you can step your foot into to hold it straight. Essentially it allows you to hold the steering wheel with your feet and use both hands to try to crack the bolt. I also had a small section of pipe (actually a section of the handle of my jack) that I used for extra leverage on the breaker bar.

You're so close!

Re: Help! Steering wheel removal

^Holding the wheel still was tricky. I did something similar with a hefty broomstick between my legs. Felt like it was gonna end up where the sun don't shine.

Having the 10 hex key socket fitment with short extender and breaker bar was a must to get clean leverage onto the hex bolt. Note there is blue locktite on the damn thing.

Tip: Do not use an allen wrench, you'll screw yourself up pretty easily and/or strip the bolt head.
