In this video Kent shares his technique for removing a padded steering wheel on most 107, 114, 115, 116, 123, 126, and 201 to 1985 chassis. These are the models WITHOUT an airbag. Also included are options for removing the hex bolt (on those models so equipped) without damaging it or the steering lock assembly.
When is steering wheel removal required? On the 107 chassis it is best to remove the steering wheel to get the instrument cluster out.
