How to remove steering wheel cover???
OK, I planned to have pics but forgot to post earlier & wife's got the Venz so I'll describe now & post pics later.
Looking to remove either the back cover by itself......(there are peep holes via the cruise control bezel and a similar cover on the opposite side).....and possibly the front cover too, if possible.
I saw a YouTube video showing 2 torx screws removed via similar areas but want to make sure before having a go.
My idea is to bolster up that rear cover as it's sloppier than a license plate held on with one screw and to top that off, mine's popping & jiggling since they replaced my steering stuff....(I think they really screwed it up replacing the steering column, but the spiral cable & turn signal assembly didn't help matters as they fubar'd the turn signal clamshell too which I already had to fix).
I figure if I can remove either piece, then I can get some foam or something in there to make it solid so it doesn't feel like my fingers are going to fall in between the gaps there whenever I grab the 3 spokes while turning casually.
P.S. Yes, I realize airbag-critical, be safe, disconnect batt, etc. etc.
