246 Cayman Steering Wheel

Recommended Posts

Looking for some help on my steering wheel. I am upgrading to a gemlux wrapped wheel. When I unbolt the existing wheel it is "stuck." I want to make sure there is not something I am missing and can loosen the wheel with a rubber mallet. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Not unusual for some corrosion between the shaft or shaft key and the steering wheel hub.  Spray a little penetrating oil on the shaft, re-install the nut on the shaft a few turns, then pull on the steering wheel while someone hits the nut with a hammer.  This should shock it loose.  Be sure to put the nut on and do not try hitting the end of the threaded shaft, or you will damage the threads.
