Alpine widow tool/ Steering wheel tool

I am looking to for the tools to replace the Alpine window gasket and remove the steering wheel. Looking to buy, borrow or rent. The latter two options will get the tools sent back with a nice box of Artisan Handmade chocolates.

Here is just one site to buy tools from. You can use the one of the locking strip tools as low as $10. There are youtube videos showing how this task is completed too. In the second video, I don't reccommend using a screwdriver unless you round and polish all edges to prevent cutting, gouging or panit/panel damage should it slip out.

Pulling the steering wheel back and forth or using a rubber mallet works fine (make sure you leave the nut on a little bit so you don't hit yourself in the face with the wheel when it comes loose)

One of those tasks that takes 30 seconds or three hours in my experience. I always refit the steering wheel with anti-seize.
