Porsche Crest Steering wheel removal?

I'm selling mine as I'm parting out my whole car, but I can't see any method of removing it.

1969'T' style, thanks-

I wish it were that simple. I removed the horn pad already and there is no nut under it.
I need to get a pic to show what I'm seeing. Thanks-

Look down in the empty space, in the neck of the steering wheel, there's got to be a nut holding the wheel to the steering shaft. If you put a 27mm socket on the end of a 10"+ extension I bet you can just insert it down into the wheel and land on the nut.

Are those three allen head socket screws into the hub? If so they obviously must come out in order to acess the nut.

Good Luck........Mike

Wait a minute, is that a wing type wing horn button. If so you have to twist it off the steering wheel hub and then you have a clear shot at the nut.

Looks to me like you screwed up and pulled the pad off the horn button. If you did not damage it, you can glue it back on. Press the rim of the horn button down on both sides at the same time and rotate counterclockwise. It should release.

Stoney comes through again!! Thanks so much!

So rotate about 90 degrees, or does it unspin like a nut?

Yeah, the pad came off easily, so I'll glue it back again...

Sounds good! As you see in the picture, it simply comes out as a X-shaped pad quite easily Michael, don't fret!

Everything is cool so far.

I'm on it! All I lack now is the steering wheel and the long rods in the tranny linkage. I have the shifter itself out, TTYL-

Stoney and Michael- Got it!

Simple twist of the horn bracket like Stoney said, and viola!
Thanks much-

Michael, all I lack now for your order is the shifting tube back to the tranny, I'll e-mail you on this issue-
