As above, I have a new steering wheel (nardi) and adaptor coming this week, what do I need to get the old one off and put the new one on?

Cheers

Sean

There's a thread somewhere about this I think.

Some say you need a special puller to avoid smashing yourself in the chops. Others reckon just a socket.

Or, as Edd China advised, leave the centre nut on a few threads while you tug and pull.

It will save on any expensive dental work:thumbup:

You'd be lucky to just pull the steering wheel off toward you, without a puller. GD I can lend you one (I made) if you promise to post it back.:beer:

Funnily enough I fitted my new Nardi wheel last week. Yes I'd be very surprised if you can wiggle the old one off especially if it has been on a long time, I tried lots of pullers but this one did the job, and yes do make sure you leave the loosened nut on.

Fitting the new wheel is simple, mount the boss and attach with the nut as you would if refitting the old wheel. Bolt the new wheel to the boss making sure the road wheels are straight and connect the horn wire.

Cheers all, my local italian car specialist have kindly offered to swap it over for beer as its a minimal job for them, so just need to plan getting over there. :)

Thanks Simon, the wheel has been off in the past couple of years so might not be that bad to get off.
