Steering Wheel repairs

PostPost by: Tim Heading2INLA9B » Fri Aug 12, 2005 7:17 pm

One of my steering wheel 'spokes' feel like it has become unattached from the rim (I have yet to remove some of the leather to see what's going on) any ideas as to who might be able to repair it ?

Sorry I cant help but there was a post a while ago saying someone in Chobham (Surrey) repaired steering wheels, maybe the poster can give details.

What kind of steering wheel is it. Is it a wooden one. If so the spokes are held in with a screw. You need to inspect for the condition of the wood

TH wrote that he has not removed the leather, so I assume that it is not a wooden steering wheel!

You could try Nick Fulcher, who is ex Lotus and a real wiz with interiors, upholstery and steering wheels. Of course, he is based in Norfolk! His web site is :

I hope he can help you.

You could always try Len Chandler (01276 856951) , email at [email protected]. I have seen him around at Club Lotus shows and the quality of his work looks good.

Len Chandler is in fact the guy in Chobham who re-leathered my wheel. Not cheap, but good workmanship.
