Height adjustment steering wheel 308GT4
Just noticed by accident that it is really simple to adjust the height of the steering wheel of the 308GT4!!!
Remove the plastic cover underneath the steering column. You'll now see a bolt head and nyloc nut that hold the steering column in place (the bolt runs horizontally underneath the steering column, left to right). In fact, there is a second set on the top end, but that one is quite a bit harder to reach, hiding behind the dash. But there really is no need to reach it anyway.
Undo the nyloc nut while holding the bolt in place, using two 13 mm spanners and you'll find that you can move the steering column up and down while the bolt slides through its oblong slot in a metal bracket. You'll get some friction from the top bolt that is still in place, but nothing too bad.
Adjust the wheel to your taste and re-tighten the nyloc nut. Put the cover back in place and presto!
My wheel was placed much to far up for my taste, so I put it down a bit. Big improvement!
Thought I'd share this tidbit.
