Hello

Does anyone know where you can get a steering wheel puller to get the standard wheel off a corsa b without an airbag. I know it has to be a special 2 bolt fitment. Also how much would this cost?

Grateful for the help.

If your strong lol you don't need 1 - my girlfriends step dad did hers and just undid bolt and then pulled steering wheel a good few times and it comes off no problems - save yourself some money that way.

You don't really need 1 tbh.
just get a hammer behind the wheel and tap it whilst someone is pulling hard on it.
I've took countless steering wheels off using this method.

I made my own one out of 2 hex ended bolts and piece of steel, bit of cutting and drilling all thats needed, very crude but does the job perfect! will try and get a pic tomorrow if you want.

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...

Possibly Halfords?

Draper would probably do a steering wheel puller too so it may be worth a google of them.

Your local tool hire shop will have a variety of pullers if you don't want to buy one.

I'm always a bit wary of hammering at a steering wheel too much. The steering column has a collapsible section that is designed to give way in the event of an impact. It is possible to bust that if you get too enthusiastic with the hammering and then you're looking at replacing the column as well.

you could also try a large bearing puller,which should be no more than a few quid for 1/2 day hire.:thumbs_up:

Thanks guys.

I've looked in Halfords...they didn't even know what one was!

I'll have to try and find some local tool shops...

I must be one strong **** then. Got my steering wheel off my GSi no problems. :confused:
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...

The bolded bit - that's what the ladies say. ;)

I don't eat Weetabix, just use small children as dumbbells. :)
