    Does anyone know off the top of their head the size of the nut that holds the steering wheel to the upper shaft in an S2?

    It's bigger than any socket I have so I'm going to buy the correct size. I don't want to buy a full set so I'm asking if anyone knows.

    It takes a one inch socket.....

    Word of caution.....be extremely carefully and patient removing and replacing.

    Lubricate well.

    NEVER Hammered on the end/threads because they are fine and thin

    Leave the nut on a few threads when removing as it can come loose and hit you in the face.
