Looks like I need to replace my turn signal switch. However, my LeCarra/Moto Lita steering wheel doesn't have any tapped holes that I normally see for attaching the steering wheel puller. I've tried a few other methods, but I can't get the wheel off. Any suggestions?

I had to go to my local LOWES and buy long machine screws, nuts and a couple different size washers to get it off. The puller kit I have has tons of nuts and bolts, but nothing that worked.

I got really long carriage bolts and unbolted three of the bolts and nuts that hold the wheel to the hub. I inserted the carraige bolts through a washer, through the upside down "Y" shaped piece on the puller and then did it like normal with the threaded bolt through the middle and mechanically popping it off. It worked the two times I had to get the wheel off. It bent the carriage bolts a little bit but it worked and the bolts and washers were like $1 from Ace. Good luck and be careful, you don't want to scratch the aluminum.
