Help.I have my 1987 Alfa Romeo Graduate being serviced

Help. I have my 1987 Alfa Romeo Graduate being serviced
for an electrical problem. The mechanic has had it more
than 2 months now to replace a bad switch. Yesterday he
advised that he has not been able to pull the steering
wheel in order to rplace the switch. Is there something
special or a trick to removing the steering wheel on
this car that he is unaware of?

    Well, I have to say, that interesting perspective

    pulled me off the sidelines and forced a response.

    I too, happen to be a 911 owner (2007 Turbo). And, not

    to play *** for tat, but I think I could have "scraped

    up the extra cash" to buy an entry level AM V8. I am a

    partner with a private equity group that briefly

    negotiated to buy the entire company from Ford's PAG.

    We elected not to proceed, but I did go so far as to

    post a $40 million personal LC to show seriousness.

    I get a humorous kick out of those who look at a $100k+

    car as a way to distinguish themselves as "someone who

    seeks to be a little different from the rest of the

    crowd". And then proceed to get into lemon law buybacks

    and are afraid to "hold their breath" on the second

    car. Who are you fooling here? You have the time and

    patience for this ****? It's not like you are getting a

    vintage Ferrari that will appreciate, you are buying a

    new Ford for heaven's sake. The frequency of problems

    with the AM V8 was one of the things that put a black

    mark on the company during our due diligence.

    And, buy the way, an F430 isn't that expensive to

    service. A hell of a lot less than my time would be

    worth having to go through a lemon law buyback. Maybe

    you should consider one when you can scrape together a

    little extra cash
