BDR...

I meant no disrespect! it just seemed like a lot of work to get your wheel off!
But, you'll have to understand that I'm a locksmith... I can't even count how many steering wheels I've pulled off! so it was kind of second nature!

Hoodawoo ... that's VERY similar to the one I used!

Well, now it is time for me to eat a little crow.....Today I went to remove the steering wheel on my 2000 model CC . There is no way the little puller I posted earlier is gonna work on a late model Cart. The wheel center is much too wide. Now if you didn't care to save it - well no problem , trim it down to fit the puller. But, I just want to remove, turn, and reinstall. Looks like I will be making another puller soon......Darn CC.

I didnt take it in any ill manner, and you're right...it WAS INDEED alot of work for such a simple task!!! It took me a day and a half to do what what you guys claim to do in 10 minutes!!!!! But when it finally came off....I felt like a champ!!!!

I called my CC dealer today... they said $189.60 List price

But for me... it would be cheaper! (I'm guessing, around $100.00 to $125.00)

Again... Still too pricey to pull off just 1 steering wheel! So BDR did what he had to do, to get the job done!

Well, for me I guess I could buy a used wheel and destroy mine. NOT. I'll figure out an easy puller that works......$200?!

I used a cheap puller from Harbor Frieght that uses bolts ,got some long 1/4 inch bolts & nuts, drilled 2 holes beside the hub,put on puller, tightened & hit puller with a really big hammer,poped right off.

That's what I was thinking about doing .....What harm can two little holes in the bottom of the wheel hub do? Thanks Hookem! Hooda

Try some JB blaster, let soak and that should be good, took me less than a min after I took off the nut with a couple wacks with a rubber mallet.

That usually works ..... I did end up making a puller from scrap steel stakes. (no real costs) I have used it several times now. It takes about 10 minutes max.

I swear the person before me Gorillaglued mine on ;).

As you can see the collar is giving before the wheel moves. I have been soaking with WD40, periodically rapping on the bolt in the puller....

I am going to try and move the puller to the outside of the collar next..... after that I am at a loss...
