Hey i have an EL mont and I'm trying to take off the steering wheel, I've taking the air bag off now im trying to remove the wheel itself, does it need a 7mm allan/hex key or is it soething else, i tried a 6mm key it was too small and the 8mm too big or is it imperial?

you need a torx security bit...a T50 i believe ?

just remember when you undo the screw, remember to leave it threaded on a little bit....
because after around ten minutes of pulling, twisting, swearing and yelling...it will come loose all of a sudden, and leaving it threaded on a bit will mean the difference between a suprise and losing your front teeth...

i already own T10 > T40, hopefully i can get theT50 by itself, though the T40 in prob 1/4 of the size i need so it seems a big jump in sizes. Goin to have a look tomorrow shops r shuttin now so the people there will rush me out rather than helping lol
