Just had my new MCJ steering wheel fitted. Photos to follow.

It's fab!!!! Great quality and looks amazing.

Had a gear stick knob fitted as well.

Struggling to fit the handbrake knob. Simply can't remove the roll pin and daren't whack it with a hammer.

They are good aren't they. So nice to drive with. Bit cold first thing in the morning at the moment though. Smile
Can't help with the roll pin. Just make sure you've the correct sized drift.

Looks great, as does the new gear knob. Liking the door cards too.

Looks swish but , importantly, can you now see the left indicator light ? I find this is obscured by the original steering wheel resulting in my driving for miles with my near side indicator still flashing - an ongoing niggle.

Know exactly what you mean and no, I still have the same problem after fitting mine.

Timer relays are available that will switch off the indicators after 15 seconds, or alternatively buzzers to make them more audible.

I don't know the method of wiring them in,.......but I'm sure someone will.

Just a thought that might work, although I haven't tried it myself.

If you have a G cramp, use a nut at one end to give clearance for the pin to be pressed out, and a bolt or other rod of the right diameter at the other.

The pressure of screwing up the cramp may be sufficient to press the pin out without bashing it.

I tried the g clamp method. Didn't work.

The mechanic at the garage also tried it with better clamp and tools.................still didn't work.

But, my super mate, Wally, we combined to make a two man super team..................and hey presto........................we did it. Yes, we had to hammer but with having two people (i.e. me pushing back on all his hits, we used the correct sized punch and it took maybe 5mins to get pin out.

Getting back in..............wow! Tricky!

Firstly the MCJ handbrake know was literally 1/10 milli to tight, but expected. So after a lot of turning and moving we got it on. Took a while to line up the holes so that the pin would go back in....................but again, with bit of team work, we sorted it.

Job done. Took about 30mins in all with no heavy, overly hard hitting. More hard taps.

Pic below Smile)))



So, cup holder - ON!
Gear knob - ON!
Steering wheel - ON!
Hand brake - ON!



I now want chrome switches for the rear window heater, front window heater, etc.......................any thoughts?

You can get them directly from MCJ Products Rachel.
Once you've chosen your wheel make sure you add the Brazilian Boss and horn push.
