just bought a steering wheel from ebay with a boss kit already attached, its the wrong one for my car, but the idiot who had it before me has rounded off half of the allen key holes, so they wont turn and the kit is stuck on there! URGH!

anyone got any ideas on how i can get the allen screws off without damageing the face of the steering wheel?

Marshall,any left-hand drill bit will work-especially the smaller sizes.Be sure your drill is running in reverse.
If all this doesn't work,bring it to me and I will fix it for you.

cheers mate! all sorted now, ending up taking part of the surrounding off the back and using pliers on the thread end of the screws to un do them.

having issues with the horn now.
