Mine requires a puller but the wheel doesn't have any threaded holes to bolt into, its the dumbest shit cuz i think i may ve jacked up the main bolt hole with the puller center piece consistently sliding sideways cuz dumbass me didn't put the big bolt back in but the kit i got didn't have an adapter for it to hug the big bolt, make a bad situation shitty the puller i got only has 2 slots and my wheel has arrows pointing towards 2 vaguely wide open spaces im apparently supposed to pull from but with only 2 slots the puller bolts never grab the wheel, and when they do the center piece starts gettin jacked up crooked. Im pist its the one thing i haven't been able to figure out, of course the more expensive solution [in my case] would have been to neve r have gotton a ford focus in the 1st place, but my wranglers guzzling straight 6 was sucking my wallet dry plusi got a sweet deal for this focus, but now i know why; its a fordable

I was going to do this on my Mercedes C-Class but I decided just to double-check eBay first and found a steering wheel that was still in really good shape for 25 bucks. So if you're thinking of refinishing your steering wheel it's never a bad idea just to check the used market first.

you could also just keep the steering wheel on and just remove the old leather and clean the glue off

I'm still driving the car on the street, so I have to retain the airbag for now! But I have something cool coming with the steering wheel very soon, stay tuned!

I've used Wheelskins steering wheel covers with alot of success. It's easier. At the spokes, it isn't quite as nice but, it looks good. Also, I didn't remove the original cover. Yes, it made the wheel a little thicker but, that's fine. The vehicles I did were a 2006 Ford Ranger and a 2006 Expedition.

How do I know if my steering wheel also has that extra layer underneath the leather?

The upholsterer in me cringed, but good job otherwise. I would recommend getting a kit so the seam looks toasty af. Even holes and no bulk. You also won't have to take the steering wheel off and they make different sizes/shapes for your type of steering wheel.

Any update to how this held up? You did an amazing job. Just curious if there is anything you notice that you may have done differently

It has held up perfectly fine! I might have used a different material, but other than that I wouldn't have changed much! Thanks a lot!
Yakav8r55m Prieš mėn
That was really interesting to watch. I was going to opt for the easier steering wheel cover but like you found out..the extra bulk to the feel wasn't desirable so I'm gonna give it a go. I was a little leary about the whole airbag disconnect though. I don't like messing with them.

Now for the real question. How to discard the airbag without error codes and how to cover up the wheel as to avoid being forced to install another explosive device within your personal vicinity.

Admirable job, though It looks like its just it could just be leather coating that is worn? Like leather shoes or any leather , it is sprayed (coloured ) and clear coated . There is a potential easier solution I would have found a leather spraypaint and clear coat , sanded , resprayed and coated much easier, done this on black faded leather wheels that had the colour and coating had peeled in sun

I always like what you're doing but this steering wheel doesn't look that nice if I'm being honest
dup Prieš mėn
of course it wont look factory. it's like 80% the way there but about 500% cheaper than a new steering wheel.

I have wrapped a steering wheel before and mine turned out well too. Where I found problems is the rubber parts of the wheel. When worn the rubber parts of the steering wheel will have another color show through. I needed to refinish the rubber surface and I couldn’t find a matching color to refinish it with. What is your suggestion?

As always great video Chris. What do you do if the steering wheel doesn't have a wrap to start with ? (2002 Toyota Corolla) Do I need to take the top layer of foam off? or put the leather over top.

Hi Chris, love your videos. One point though - people doing this should ensure their wheels are dead straight before doing any of this and that way your mark will be dead centre because the steering wheel may not have been straight to begin with. Cheers

You are supposed to disconnect the negative (ground) first. If you disconnect the positive and touch the wrench to any part of the cars body (the chance of that happening are high), it could be deadly!
