'30 steering wheel removal

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

OK, slightly embarrassing but how the heck do you remove the steering wheel?! :(

I can raise the chrome ring around the horn button (I think it is the spark retard lever etc) a little but it appears to be spring loaded and only moves maybe 1/4-1/2 inch. When I raise it I do see the hex nut holding the steering wheel to the column, very frustrating...

Thanks,

Paul

You need to start at the other end of the steering column. Remove the light switch at the base of the steering gear, and you should find a retaining clip which prevents the horn rod from being removed. After removing the clip, you can pull the horn rod up, which will enable you to remove the steering wheel nut. You then can remove the steering wheel.

Googled this sight for the same reason, steering wheel removal. I don't have an assembly manual yet as I just got my 29 Tudor. Thanks for the info. First time on the sight but I'll be back alot for tips and pictures.

Sometimes you don't have enough room in a coupe or closed truck. You might have to remove the back window.

I would suggest that anyone having troubles simply read Les Andrew's Model A Mechanics Handbook. That clearly shows the two easiest ways to remove the complete steering assembly.
