    E series Vauxhall

    Hellooo....can anyone tell me how to remove a 1953 E Series steering wheel please? To be more exact; how to remove the horn /indicator assembly. On the PA it just prises off but on this it's not that simple, or so it seems.

    Thanks in advance.

    Isn't it like a 100E one where there is a long steel stube that pushes all the way down the inner steering column? Look at where the horn wire exits the box at the bottom will give you a clue .

    Yep, it probably is but, I can't get the horn button etc off to get at the nut ya see. The only reason I want to remove it is to put it back on again (I really do need to get out more don't I?) The spokes on the wheel aren't straight across but on an angle when I'm going straight. I don't know about anyone else but it gets to me. (Yep...it's official...I really DO need to get out more)

    ...or....does anyone have an E Series Vauxhall Wyvern Workshop Manual they could have a look at for me please. Only need to know how the horn button assembly comes off to reveal the nut that holds the steering wheel on. That reminds me of an old joke but it doesn't because I can't remember it but would do if I could.

    If it hasn't been off in ages and the wheel is ****ed it's more than likely been tracked incorrectly whne the steering wasn't middl eof travel. OR worn track rod ends etc that allowing all the slop to be taken up by the road camber and pulling the wheel round

    It has had new track rod ends a few hundred miles ago so thats probably it. The previous owner, like me, hadn't got a clue how to remove the horn assembly etc so left well alone. But...his o.c.d. wasn't as bad as mine. Haha.

    Kev, you are quite correct! It's one of them there tube thingys that run down the centre of the column. I haven't done the job yet because the chap who renovated the car has put a juction box on the inner wing right up against the bottom of the column and at the moment I can't get that off but will do at some point. Thanks Kev and get better sooooon.
