  1. Hi. I am almost feared that question to come up as it might again indicate my total knowledge lack of everything 🙂 Fact is, the nut which by the way was broken from the beginning, has very little thread to work with. Sitting tight it actually does sit slightly on top the steering column itself. Well, whilst saying that my brain begins to work and I am beginning to wonder if that is maybe linked to the wrong nut? LOL. Certainly something I need to investigate a bit further. Thom
  2. Sorry for not having responded earlier. Thanks to your kind and rather explanatory support the wheel finally came off. Just before Christmas. It is now undergoing "surgery" and will hopefully be properly alive and kicking in a couple of weeks. What I did notice, however, the wheel or at least a wheel was taken off before. The steering wheel column was significantly shortened during that process to such a level that I might have to think about a solution for security reasons. thanks again
  3. Ups. No. 😄😊 But amazon. That will do. Thanks by the way for the on going interaction. Unfortunately with work and family requirements in place it is often rather difficult to sneak out for a minute or two to work on the car 😁😭😔
  4. Thanks. I did not get round to it tonight. Shall look at it over the weekend. But generally speaking my set does not look any different. The nut approach I have not tried out yet. But despite this set up I have failed 🤔 I am unfortunately a third try lucky man 😔😊
  5. Awfully kind of you for providing so much insights. I shall keep this in mind for my hopefully final push. 😄
  6. Well. I certainly thought so. But I will go back to it again tomorrow. Thanks. And I certainly love the Arnold phrase. Lol
  7. Hi. Me again. How much pressure is actually necessary to get the wheel off? I have tightened up this device so strongly that nothing can be moved any more. But still the wheel sits strong and is not moving.
  8. Thannnnnkkkkkkkk youuuuuuuu😊
  9. I will just do as you have recommended. Thanks Just to be on the safe side and to get it right. The nut and I call it spacer, which it probably is not called. So the nut and spacer can be taken off easily obviously. Which I already have. When using the puller shall I leave this set up on or off? My assumption would have been: off. Kindest regards. Thom

  11. OK. Just ordered one. Thanks 🙂
  12. Now the terrible part of the year is here again. Driving is no more and I am embarking on improving my cars health, fitness and look and feel. With the usual, almost unbelievable obscure battles and feeling lost far too many times. I literally spent 3 hrs. today trying to the change the vent window gasket. Ok, the change is done but the window does not close nor move. What an annoying bummer. Something that should take 2 hrs in total will probably take me two weeks in the long run. Well, sorry for me dragging on. Here now my actual question (supported by pictures below). The steering wheel needs refreshment. On I went and aimed for a 20 minute session (that is actually the link to my long and winding introduction :-). Off they went, the screws, the horn ring, the nut and I felt like the best mechanic in the world. Cool, that was easy, so I thought. And then I pulled on the steering wheel for the final feeling of victory. Only looking baffled and ... well of course this bloody thing does not come off, does not even vaguely move. Now what? I have searched and saw this ancient looking horror device called "steering wheel puller". Is that the answer to my problem? Have I missed any other screws? What if such a puller is not at hand (which is the case), how else can I do it? Is it in the end a question of brute force? thanks for your help. Thom
  13. thanks. Both information are sufficient enough as I shall simply aim for a similar paint number that is being in use over here 🙂 Thanks to both of you for your swift and kind response. Thom
