In the interest of a good fit and finish by the upholsterers. I want to take the steering wheel to them so that they do not have limited access around the wheel.

And considering the pandemic, I'm not sure about letting someone sit in my car for hours together.

If you're suggesting not removing it myself because I might not have the prowess, I understand. But seeing the many steering swaps on polos and dashboard removals on the forum, I thought it would be a fairly easy process.

I will respond to this one. Your other concern regarding health safety, it is a call you have to take.

These installers are used to doing the wrap on the wheel itself, though it means a little more effort for them.

Understood.

I have a neighbour who has an LX Storme with the black interiors and no airbags. I'm going to let mine be done in the car.

But in case we need to remove the LX's steering wheel, it's going to be much easier right?

Could you pls share steps for that?


They look good together don't they?

Vixit, sorry for late reply.

To remove a steering wheel, you would need to pry open the horn pad. Then there is a nut at the centre that holds the steering wheel to the shaft. You open this one. There will be 2-3 other screws too to remove. Dont have pics for that.

Once you remove it, you will need to bang the steering wheel from below, at a few different points around the wheel. This will loosen it up. And then you can pull it out.

When putting back, reverse this process. But make sure that the screws are not loose - can end up flying on to the metal plate there causing the horn to go off when that loose & floating around screw touches something to complete the horn circuit.

And you have to remember the alignment of the wheel when you are removing it - if you dont place it at the same point, then the steering will be at a different angle than neutral, and you will have the wheel pointing at a different direction than before.

Releasing it from the shaft after you remove the nut is the tough part.

The old numbers are still there. People in services normally dont change their numbers

Nagraj - 8431768691

Call & speak to him. Tell him TBHP and he will know.

I am also looking to replace Linea Emotion plus steering cover with Airbag and steering button controls. please update here once you have done stitching it. I need to plan to visit Devraj shop when i drive to B'lore once lock down settles.

I have been searching for the same kind of fit & finish and shop here in Chennai and my native in tamilnadu. no one is ready to stitch as original with or without removing the steering. they used to stitch over the old cover and stitch lines are seen in steering joints sorely.

Nagaraj stays near Mysore road and is not well with a heart condition. He is open to complete the work if we can go to his home but is recommending to visit Devraj for any work for the next month or so.

Devraj has hired some workers and gets the work done from a parking spot behind JC road. The price also has gone up for steering wrap with 3 variants costing Rs.1500 for the base, 2K for the recommended Stanley leather and 6K for Napa leather versions.

Devraj: +91 99015 39349

Re: Leather Upholstery & Steering Grips: Devraj / Karthik Leather Arts (Bangalore)

Hi All,
Need your help. The leather upholstery of my ciaz zxi+ for my front left door panel has completely peeled off. Is it a simple matter of fitting the same leather back again? Is this something i can do myself or do i need to goto someone like Devraj to get it fixed?

I am not sure if you can do it yourself. But upholstery shops should be able to -> remember that the shops also do door pads in the same material that the seats have (when buyer asks for this)

Got my Honda City 2014 model steering wheel done by Nagaraj. He has moved his shop to Muddina Palaya, near Nagarbhavi. He has set up a new shop there. The place has good parking space and is a convenient shop. This is an honest man, who is doing a great job and isn't overcharging. He needs all the support that he can get.
