steering wheel

1. the central horn piece is removed most easily by removing the casing around the steering and cruise control & ignition, then using a small diameter but cylinderical inpliment to knock the two lugs back thru from the rear of the central horn piece, (we assummed these were screws in the 2 holes until a mirror and torch were used to reveal the back end of plastic lugs) otherwise just remove the horn fuse (2 save the noise), and rigorously prise the horn cover off.
2. the cruise control becomes obsolete , so remove it, when upgrading the steering wheel using a boss kit.
3. use strength or a proper extractor to remove steering wheel.

thanks anyway guys

nobody told us that puting on an aftermarket steering wheel means doing away with the cruise control AND the horn - no horn no rego - shooting for a refund of wheel and boss kit unless very easy legal solution is known by someone
