Re: [DML] Steering wheel removal

Oh my goodness! Going to a hammer to get the steering wheel off??? 

Saturday, I did find the solution at ACE Hardware. I got a normal 
harmonics kit from Autozone (as they rent 'em to ya) Found the bolts 
that were the closest fit which came with the Harmonics kit.. I knew 
that the thread and bolt had to be metric... I am really not happy 
that I did not write down the size, so whoever else needs it, I can 
mail them to you. Please message send me a message offline. I can 
also send pics of the setup I did. 

I then unscrewed the center nut 80 to 90% of the way off so that I 
could guide in the center thingy that comes with the harmonics tool 
as it fit in nicely without touching the threads. The reason I did 
this was because, it would slide off the center post of the steering 
column. I put 2 washers on the end of the bolts purchased from ACE 
Hardware. (One washer on it bent and broke prior to pulling the 
steering wheel off) With that setup, I was able to get it off no 
problem. I have vin #003372

The harmonics kit was free (refundable deposit) and the bolts cost 
1.20 a piece. The washers I already had, so it cost me the $2.40 to 
make the necessary adapter.
