    Default Steering wheel repair

    The cover on the steering wheel on my 95 405 is starting to separate from the metal core.
    The cover is not damaged but I can feel it move around the core when I grab it.

    I was wondering if any AFers have done a successful fix.

    I was thinking of inserting a long syringe so that it ran along the wheel core and slowly withdrawing it as I pump in something along the metal core. Would probably have to do two or three times as have about 100 - 125mm to secure

    Any suggestions on a better method... and what to use. araldite, silicone????

    you are on the right track some in PCCV have used a Sikaflex product in a mastic gun injected thru a small hole in back of the loose bit of wheel cover
    from memory it spreads along about 100 to 150mm if you can get the pressure

    Further to "Alpine's" suggestion. I've heard of urethane being injected into the loose section of wheel cover. Urethane rubber is fast curing.

    What I find incredible about this steering wheel problem is that it has been ongoing since the later 504's.
    Surely they, Peugeot, must get some feedback from their service engineers throughout the world ?
    Maybe it's the French attitude that, "why should we care about a problem that shows up a few years into the cars life?"

    I have used uretane adhesive from Clark Rubber with complete success (from memory it was about $12- for a 500ml can ).

    Uretane. is that correct spelling?

    did you syringe it in?

    decca,

    yes it should be urethane bond and I did syringe it in, working systematically around the circumference of the wheel. But I cannot take credit for the technique which was described by Bruce Taylor in a PCCV article a few years ago.
