Question

I found a steering wheel to replace my stock one, which I got in pretty bad shape (missing the horn button thing). Is it really hard to remove the stock one without alot of tools. Lets say, I have only a screwdriver and a ratchet...how frustrating would that be?

-89RS V6, powersteering.

Any advice, help, walkthroughs, paryers, or cash donations would be helpful. Thanks.

"My Camaro is V6." I said.
"......." Was there reply. And they never talked to me again. :-(

I have never done it, but is there not just a big nut that holds it on? The ratchet should be able to get that off if so. Let me know how you make out as I am curious about this as well.

Get a steering wheel puller it will be much easier. You can also use a harmonic balance puller if you have one.

When I was 19 I went to pull my steering wheel in my 69 pontiac. All I had was a ratchet & screwdriver. After getting the nut off, I positioned myself over the wheel and pulled as hard as I could. I popped off so fast and hard it came up and almost broke my nose. It was lights out and blood.
Get a puller, they're cheap.

if you have a "auto zone" store nearby..they have a tool rental program..you rent the puller for the purchase price and then return it....alot of auto parts stores have a program like that, for all kinds of speciality tools
