Steering wheel shaft removal

Recommended Posts

Nick
What's the best way to get my b-110 steering wheel shaft apart? I am trying to remove it from the old dash to install it in my replacement one. The set screw up top is pretty rusted shut. It's been sitting a few days in oil, to help losen it but it still won't budge.

Nick, Is the hex head stripped out or can you still get a hex wrench on it. If it is stripped from trying to get it out I have had good luck applying a little heat to the screw and then trying to drill it out with left handed drill bits. Usually the bit will catch enough and eventually unscrew the set screw. If it isn't stripped try putting some heat to it put a hex wrench in it and give it a few wacks with a hammer while you put pressure on it and alot of times it will loosen. An impact driver with a hex head will do the same thing. Good luck and Merry Christmas Stan

Nope, not stripped, I'll try it later on with some heat and a few whacks of a hammer. I did manage to bend a few hex wrenches though, my advice DON'T USE CHEAP TOOLS ON RUSTY OBJECTS! I learned that today. I'll be using my Elkind hex set, never bent them once.
