Steering Wheel Hub Removal?
Hey everybody! I just searched the site and couldn't find the answer to my question, so I decided to post. I don't like to re-post and re-ask questions that are well addressedin the archives.
This might seem pretty basic to most of you, but I'm fairly new to this. I just got ahold of a really nicely re-finished steering wheel hub for my 73 trans am along with a new Fat Grip formula style wheel to dress up the interior a bit. I was able to remove the old wheel by removing all the allen screws and the horn button popped out pretty easily.
Here is my question, how do I go about removing the steering wheel hub? The horn mechanism that the horn button presses into is right in the middle of the steering wheel hub where one would ordinarily insert the two bolts for a standard steering wheel puller. Do I need to remove the horn assembly from the center of the hub in order to use a standard steering wheel puller? If so, how do I get the horn assembly out of the center of the steering wheel hub?
Or, can I just remove the center nut and gently pry from the base of the hub where it meets the steering column? Any and all help greatly appreciated.
