you could also try a large bearing puller,which should be no more than a few quid for 1/2 day hire.:thumbs_up:Sorry to bump such a relic of a thread (i didn't see the need in starting a new thread...), but i'm in desperate need of a steering wheel puller. I spent an entire day last week trying to get the wheel off my Corsa B, but it just won't budge. I've had 5 different people on it (including a Bodybuilder), and it's stuck fast. I've completely raided my tool shed and have used almost every tool in there to try and get this thing off!
I've also tried making my own leverage devices, with little success. I even went down my local 'handyman', and he was stumped!
So, does anyone know where i could get myself a half-decent puller that will get this damn steering wheel off...before i wind up in the mental ward? I've seen a few on ebay, but i'm not sure whether they'd be up to the job...
Depends on the tolerances. The wheel & column shaft aren't that critical. If you get a large wheel on a small shaft then it's quite a loose fit. On the other hand, a small wheel on a large shaft is a very tight fit.I must be one strong **** then. Got my steering wheel off my GSi no problems.
The bolded bit - that's what the ladies say.Depends on the tolerances. The wheel & column shaft aren't that critical. If you get a large wheel on a small shaft then it's quite a loose fit. On the other hand, a small wheel on a large shaft is a very tight fit.
It also depends if someone has had it off before.
On the other hand, you may just have had an extra Weetabix that morning...
