It's been a long time so I might be wrong. But, do you have the big bubber bumper pad that's all black, like on a 97 d90?
If so, you can just pull it, and it will pop off.

130Tdi: to rephrase: Do you remove the front rubber steering wheel cover from the back of the wheel first or from the sides?

removing the steering wheel

Removing the rubber pad was not a problem: pull the edges and slide it up.

I'm using a wheel adapter and managed to get 17% off the center column. The '94 requires a 2 X 6 mm bolts on the 12 and 6 openings. Tried using a soft mallet gently on the back of the wheel. Even a drumroll cadence on the 3 and 9 from old school hip hop to the hula. Pushing in/out was another option. It still will not budge. Any other techniques/suggestions?

Is it wise to use 10WD40 in this situation?

Thanks

Undo the nut that holds the wheel to the column but leave it on a couple of turns. Rock the wheel from the 3 and 9 o'clock hand positions whilst pulling up at the same time, it usually pops off after a while. Leaving the nut on but loose stops you hitting yourself in the face with the wheel when it breaks free suddenly.
Hope this helps

Sorry for the thread highjack.
Will a NAS D90 steering wheel fit a NAS D1 (without airbags)?
Thanks

Thumbs up removing the steering wheel

Tanks for the advice, fellas.

Removed it with a Y-adapter. Best to keep the nut on.
