Hey Everyone!

Here is a thought Im sure many of you have come across....


How do I take care of my stearing wheel?


Seriously, I have never owned a car with a leather wrapped stearing wheel. The other day the thought dawned on me that I dont know if there are any special things we need to do to protect and maximize the lifespan of our beautiful leather-encassed stearing wheels.

Any thoughts?


:cool:

is there anything special that should be used for the leather on the stearing wheel besides white glue?

heh.

Just use a leather cleaner and conditioner. Be sure not to put too much on there, because the wheel will get slippery if you do.

if you just use warm water, a little soap (mild d/w liquid) and a soft cloth, you should be fine . . .

if you do use treatment (anyones) use little, wipe well and let it dry

avoid silicone laden products . petroleum distillates etc . .

I use Lexol cleaner on the leather wrapped part fairly regularly. When it starts to look a little dull, I also use the Lexol conditioner. I use the conditioner sparingly, it's not as slippery as other leather conditioners (even Meguiar's is a little slippy), but even Lexol has a little slip to it; I always let it dry overnight.

It's also great for the seats, it's a spray, whereas most other leather cleaners are creams which clog up the pores in the perforated seats.

For the center of the steering wheel I stuck with the namebrand and got Vinylex. That works for most of the interior really well.
