I have been searching all over for a steering wheel cover,most of them are 37cm-39cm---14.1/2"-15.1/2" my steering wheel on the "400" is 40cm---15.3/4" I know one of the members on here had covered his S/wheel but I cant find the thread. Does anyone know where it is.Or maybe the owner can come back on. All information most helpful Cheers.

have a look at this post and my pics:

http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=80946

I bought it from the USA and it was a really really sung fit - had to warm it up first to soften it and the put it on - slowly bit by bit - needed 2 of us - one to hold it in place and prevent it coming off and the other to gradually slip it over - very comfortable and very easy to steer with just one hand!

Alas i have had to get used to wooden steering wheels on my Mark 4 and LS430 - they are more slippery therfore you cannot steer with one hand

hope this helps

Not keen, makes me think of a taxi driver out of Bradford.

I saw a post somewhere years ago where the guy had actually had the sterring wheel recovered professionally along with the shift lever. I will try and find it.

I'd be interested in that info mine has a few ring marks in it

If you enter "Steering wheel refurb" into google loads of them appear. Mike

Is that referring to royal steering wheels ?

If you get some strong thread that will match in colour you could stitch the two inner sections together and it will not look so much like a cover, which of course it is. A friend of mine did it and it looks brilliant. Mike

yes - heating on a radiator will make is softer and will help - dont try to get it all on in one go - start at top and then slowly work your way round - an extra pair of hands will help

If you can run an extension lead out a hairdrier will be a great help but dot heat the wheel up at the same time. It looks good. Mike
