Subject: Steering Wheel Removal

Mike,

About the steering wheel removal: I had the very same question about 6
months ago. I had already damaged the original steering wheel in an attempt
to get it off with a puller. I had a new wheel to install but was trying to
salvage the old wheel. Gord Souter wrote me on the list-serve reporting
that he had never found a steering wheel that couldn't be removed by
grabbing it firmly and pulling it off by hand. You can check the archives
for my original posting and Gord's response.
Basically if you grab the wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock and pull on one side
then the other, rocking the wheel back and forth, it should break free after
about 5 pulls. I remember, in my case, nothing happened at first. I was
about to write Gord back to report his idea didn't work. At the last
minute, I moved my hands to the 12 and 6 o'clock position and tried again.
The wheel "popped" and slid right off. Good luck.

I was just about to write the whole story over again.

Gord souter.

the trick is to pull litely after a hard wiggle.

Go look on ebay at the DKW Auto Union and see if you don't think the steering
wheel looks an aweful lot like an Amphi's. And at $425, what an interesting
fellow Berlin-er (not the doughnut) to keep Amphi company.
