Question about 2006 Land Rover LR3
I am looking into replacing the steering wheel on my Discovery 3. I have been using a DiskLock to help immobilize the car and this has gotten so hot in the summer sun that it has melted the soft leather on the steering wheel. This is now getting quite irritating to hold during longer journeys and the leather itself has become sticky, so my hand sticks to it after just a few minutes.
Is it worth changing the wheel or is there a cheaper and easier solution like a NICE cover?

SOURCE: Hi, i have a manual
All Land rovers suffer from clonks in take upo of drive. Most common is that the gearbox mainshaft not only wears itself but also wears the input gear of the transfer box. They can also exhibit this problem from other parts such as drive shaft and drive plate spline wear, worn radius arm bushes, A frame top ball joint, engine and or gearbox mountings. If the clonk is coming from the prop shafts, then by the time you hear or feel the clonk, the prop shaft is propably for throwing. They have big problems with prop universal joints and usually are replaced quite often.
Hope this helps

with great difficulty,first you have to disconnect battery to stop air bag accidently going off ,then remove the air bab ,two clips underneath steering wheel ,very difficult without the right tools ,then the big nut and maybe evan a steering wheel puller.Whats the fault that necessatates removing the steering wheel in the first place?

you've got to jack the vehicle up and rock the tire/wheel assembly back and forth from right to left, as if being turned by the steering wheel while you look to see which joints are loose. if there's clunking, it will be very loose and obvious just by looking. sometimes though you've got to put your hand on the joint to feel for play.
