Steering wheel removal

Does anyone know what tool is used to remove the center retaining nut to remove the steering wheel. Would I just use a large socket? Any idea what size I would use? Just trying to line up the tools before I get started. Thanks.

Here is what the workshop manual says. Looks like it is just a big hex nut once the plastic cover is removed.. I have no idea on the size. You can always measure it. Here is a blow up of the nut once removed.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Thanks Taz. It turned out to be 24 mm.

Were you able to reuse the wheel retaining nut? The workshop manual suggests using a new nut. How easy was it to install and reinstall the wheel?

Thanks!

It was pretty easy to do once I had the right tools. The nut is on pretty tight. I had to use a big breaker bar to loosen it. I was able to reuse the nut which seemed fine. I was able to torque it to the recommended spec. So far so good.

torque

Hi, what is the recommended torque for the steering wheel, I believe I read 50 Nm somewhere but I am not sure. Thanks for answering ...
