Default Re: Removing the original steering wheel

Havent you all seen my video on this? Ive hammered off so many steering wheels and NEVER once have I pulled the shaft out of te steerng box. How could you? You still have the steering joint that would have to go completely straight before pulling the shaft out.

BigDaddyRog - If you're still reading this thread, I feel your pain brother. I had the same trouble with my wheel, and reading your post was like a verbatim description of my blood battle with my own cart.

I worked on my cart for like 3 nights in a row, til 10-11 pm trying to get that **** wheel off. Scoured the Internet trying to find help.....pounded the ever-lovin sh** out of it with a rubber mallet, then a claw hammer....bruised the crap outta my thighs from putting them underneath the wheel and pushing up while I pulled with all my might....bought a **** steering wheel puller from Autozone, (and all that did was rip holes in the plastic)....attacked it like a psycho and yanked it back and forth while foaming at the mouth and screaming cuss words.....but nothing. Didn't budge it a milimeter.

Finally gave up like a whipped dog, trailered the cart, and hauled it to a GC shop and paid them to do it.....and they got it off.

You're not alone my friend!

.... my little (no cost) homemade puller removes the steering wheel in no time. No bruises or damaged wheels. Club Car sells a special puller but the last time I checked it was $160. You would have to put 10 a day to make that pay

We need to start a "Classic Threads" section. This needs to be in there!

I sounded a lot like skm. I bet if someone looked in the garage window they would have thought I was a lunatic.

scottyb, I made one from your model. It indeed applies alot of pressure...

Been shooting with PB Blaster. Been using lfh and BFH, been tapping metal collar with screw driver, applying more torque, spraying repeating.....

Almost looks to me like the the plastic collar that holds the metal knurl collar is going to give up first. So I will have the wheel off but the metal collar still on :)

Pictures are fun....
