replacing the steering wheel?

Post by barefoot on Fri Aug 06, 2010 3:48 pm

hi, alien great website this, the manuals were a life saver! Just want to ask your advise about changing the steering wheel. Are they easy to remove and will i need a boss kit to fit a new one?? Any help would be most appreciated as not a mechanic just a girl trying to smarten up her hijet on the cheap!
cheers Question

The jet might not be the same as the Rascal........... But if it is then you will struggle to find a boss to fit. The way we got round this was to take the old wheel off, set fire to it! and then when all the plastic has burnt off, cut the centre part out and make it into a boss for your chosen steering wheel. I used a mini 10" wheel and once we cut the old wheel into a boss it looked like a factory fit!!.
