How to repair a leather steering wheel

My steering wheel has gotten worn a little bit on one side. Well...more like the "paint" of the leather has peeled somewhat away. 90% of the steering wheel still looks good. A little dirty, but still in good shape Is there a quick, cheap fix for this. Paint it, stain it, or something else. Also, please recommend a good clear/reconditioner for leather. I prefer not to put a steering wheel cover over it. Thanks.

SOURCE: How to Clean Auto Leather

I use Griot's Garage leather care products and have been very pleased with the results. Thy have a leather care spray that will clean light dirt, but very dirty leather may require an interior cleaner that is PH blanced so it does not dry the leather out. Then after the leather is clean, allow it to warm in the sun and apply leather care, leather 3 in 1 or leather rejuvenator, all excellent products, that will sink into the leather and keep it supple and prevent cracking. I would not use shoe cleaner as that leather is dyed differently and may be too harsh for fine leather as is used on vehicle seats. Also keep in mind that in most vehicles, only the leather "seating surfaces" are actually leather, the rest is matching vinyl so be sure to test anything you use on a non-visible spot first.

As for repairs, there are kits available to repair holes and rips. Many are simple and require a small patch behind the leather and the placing of a color matched "goo" on top of the patch and pressing of a grained paper over the goo to resemble the leather graining, so it looks similar when dried.

Best of luck.

My steering wheel on my mazda cx9 will not turn

Try attempting to turn the key st the same time you try to work the steering wheel side to side. It may take a little while, but it should unlock the wheel in a bit.

My steering wheel locks up and my key is a little worn and my boyfriend can never get it started whats the unlock method i have heard so many i always pull back all yhe way the go forward and it starts...

Yes, it could definitely be the worn out key, and most likely is. Your steering wheel locks whenever the wheel is turned without the ignition being switched on. You should still be able to move the wheel a little bit in one direction. Turn the wheel slightly in that direction to alleviate the pressure on the locking pin and in doing so, the ignition switch. That should make it a little easier to find that "sweet spot" where your key will work to turn the ignition. And definitely get a new key made. Hope this helps a little.

The ignition wont turn at all and car is locked in park position.

IF you are parked with your wheels turned a little, sometimes the steering can get into kind of a bind and the steering wheel lock could be causing your problem. Did you try to move your steering wheel around a little bit to see if it will allow the key to turn? Is your key worn. I have seen worn keys that will cause your problem. Also the tumblers in your ignition could me messed up. You could try putting some dry graphite lube on your key and slide it in and out of your ignition several times to get lubrication into the tumblers and see if that helps.

My 1982 Chevrolet blazer power steering is too soft and not good in traveling a high speed, how can i adjust it to become a little bit harder?

There is no adjustment on the power steering pump.If you have slack or a lack of response most likely you have a worn part such as tie rod end or idler arm.Low pressure in the power steering would cause the steering to be stiff , mostly at low speed.The faster you go the less need there is for power steering,for example turn off the engine while sitting in the driveway and see how difficult the wheel is to turn.You cand jack up a front wheel and check for slack in the steering components by trying to move the tire side to side and back and fourth.Good Luck!
