Universal Instructions on Installing a Quick Release Steering Wheel

Even if you just bought an aftermarket brand name quick release hub such as NRG, Momo, Sparco or JDM racing the majority of these products follow the same general principles of installation.

Learn the basic steps of properly adding a quick release steering hub to your vehicle.

Nobody detests car thieves more than the car owners themselves. Regrettably, it is far too often a common occurrence among owners of regular stock cars and especially modified car owners. There is basically not much a person can do short of spending hundreds of dollars to add the most sophisticated alarm system to their vehicle to deter thieves, but even that may not seem like enough sometimes. Fortunately, there are other simpler and less expensive methods to alleviate this growing problem. You don't have to just wait around hoping that you car won't be stolen. Simply invest into an aftermarket quick release steering wheel for your car. These generally fit most vehicles on the road today and it takes less time to install then it would take to wash and wax your entire car.

Before we dive into the general step by step procedures please note that this particular type of modification is only legal on vehicles that are not originally equipped with an airbag or that are for off-road or exhibit/show purposes only Autel MaxiPRO MP808TS.

Firstly, to install a quick release hub into your vehicle you would need to refer to your manual to find instructions on how to remove your stock wheel. Then disconnect the car battery and remove the horn button so that you can reach the steering hub bolt. A regular socket wrench or lug-nut crossbar can be utilized to loosen the bolt. Once the main bolt has been removed you should be able to take the steering wheel right off of the steering column. An important thing to know here is to remember the original alignment of your steering wheel. This is important since you will need to put it back into the exact position when you attempt to reassemble it. The worse thing to happen is that you forget and then your alignment is off which will affect the safety of your vehicle.

Whether you need to install an adapter plate or not to your quick release hub is contingent on what type and brand of aftermarket steering wheel that you own. A good way to check is to see if any of your Allen screw holes line up properly when you try to put your steering wheel onto your hub. Once everything is properly aligned you can tighten the Allen screws to finish this particular step of the installation process.

The next step is to attach the quick release steering hub directly onto the vehicle's steering column and securely tighten it down with the main steering hub bolt. When doing this it is critical that the wheel itself is properly positioned to prevent any problems with alignment.

Fasten 1/2 of the hub plate to the farthest end of the hub, and tighten it down securely with the Allen screws. This particular hub plate will be the actual point which the quick release hub plate will attach to. Anchor the ground wire of the vehicle's horn button to this plate as well. Afterwards you would need to fasten the other half of the hub plate that belongs with the car's steering wheel.
Line up the Allen screw holes together beginning from the steering wheel all the way to the hub plate Autel MaxiTPMS PAD. Then fasten the steering wheel down with Allen screws. Thoroughly inspect the steering wheel alignment again to make sure that everything is in their proper locations. Now you can attach the ground wire of the vehicle's horn button and push the horn button into position.

Now that your quick release steering wheel is installed you can complete the final step by testing it. You should be able to use the included keys to lock and unlock the quick release hub and depress the release tabs to remove your steering wheel. Again, these are general steps which we have provided for the majority of major aftermarket brand name quick release steering hub products on the market today but we still recommend that you consult not only your vehicle's manuals but also the detailed instructions of the product which you have purchased before attempting to perform the installation yourself.
