Yo guys

I recently bought a Grant steering wheel for my 89' Mk1 Caddy and a grant boss to match.

But, as with everything...something gets in the way.

It seems that post 1989 the steering column shaft was fitted with a larger spline adapter that fits over the smaller spline

But the boss wont fit over the adapter. Ive looked through forums and found this problem quite common and that you can take this adapter off but what i want to know is HOW haha

Ive tried everything from a 3-leg puller to good ole fashioned flathead and a hammer. None have worked.

Ive also read that VW make a tool designed for taking this off, but google has failed me

I was just wondering if anyones had the same issue or had any luck getting it off?

It will be MUCH appreciated my fellow dubbers

Joe
