95 R33 GTR - Can't remove HKB Hub

Recommended Posts

Recently purchased a 95 R33 GTR Vspec. New to this forum, but quite excited. The horn is not connected, so I was trying to fix that (countless posts on this forum about this), however I cannot seem to remove the hub.  When I pulled everything off and took a look, I feel like this was installed wrong and in the worst way.  Looking for some assistance. Thanks in advance!

Or beat it off. If I wasnt in lockdown I could help you beat it off.

This... is amazing haha.  I greatly appreciate the "beat off" assistance.  Might be a long flight to the states.  I put the steering wheel on and beat that bad boy with a rubber mallet from behind, but still no luck. I guess I just need to hit it more often and harder :(.  Was hoping some sort of magic trick or pulley puller trick to help get it off.  Thanks!

Any local parts store will have a steering wheel specific or 3 arm puller.  You may need to buy some longer metric bolts depending on what you have to screw it into on the boss kit.

But I think the boys above would rather see you beat it off.  I think lockdown has got to everyone this time around......

Are you trying to replace the steering wheel or get the horn working? If only the latter you can just add a momentary switch somewhere to connect the 2 horn wires to the steering wheel. It also looks like you've lost your HICAS steering wheel angle sensor but perhaps HICAS is disonnected

Roger that! I'll look into that. I knew there were pulley pullers and I didn't think about steering wheel pullers.

My primary objective is the horn, however when I removed the steering wheel, the install looked wrong/broken. I may have to default to a momentary switch somewhere, but I also wasn't sure where the horn wire was. I only have the white plug coming out and I thought that was the airbag. Too many videos and posts that make it a bit confusing on which wire/plug is the horn wire.

 

Not sure about the HICAS. I only acquired this car a little over a week ago. Seeing the yellow part with the arrow pointing in the NW direction seemed wrong.

You shouldn't need to use a steering wheel puller.

You only need to undo the middle nut & it should slide off.

Also, it looks like its been installed incorrectly.

Nut removed easily... steering wheel doesn't move. Hit the mother trucker hard many many times and didn't budge.  The install looked wrong to me as well, but wasn't certain and was hoping for that kind of feedback which I greatly appreciate.

Thanks! My only challenge is that I only have the airbag wire coming out of the steering hub area and don't see the horn wire as shown in that post and I'm not sure why. I'll spend some time next week trying to pull the wheel off again and see if I can use a puller.

    • They’re such a good looking car shame the dash is so ugly 
    • Far out, people still post here occasionally!
    • I still await Startrack for my Balancer. In the meantime, my lovely girlfriend sold her Turbo MX5. Her criteria was "Something Japanese, Fun, but a hatchback" (cause she doesnt like 100kmh highways in a MX5, and tends to go to bunnings a lot) Basically my Megane, but Japanese. Because she is blessed, not cursed, this is now in the driveway, 1 day later. Bonus Extras (that she and seller didn't notice, but I did) Genuine P1 Buddy Clubs Genuine Mugen Wang Short shifter of some sort (shifts amazingly, def not stock - we test drove a few cars) Aftermarket Helical LSD (Quaife?) One of the other ones we tested had an Intake, for max VTEC sounds. So we're getting one of those. As for how it drives, I have now experienced 3 different cars in this household I should primarily drive around instead of my R34. I googled bolt on supercharger kits for the K20, which was the inspiration for my mate's supercharged BMW, and found that when I overlaid a video of someone doing a 50-250kmh pull, and my own video at Sandown in the LS Skyline... they were identical in acceleration. Every frame of the entire thing. It was eerie. My lovely gf is extremely happy, and I am too. They really do drive excellently, and the fit and finish and interior is just awesome. I am more excited to drive this thing around than my own car, which I hope to high heaven is just because it's new to me and a great deal/hilariously good buy. However this completes our household change from Turbo life to N/A Purity!
    • Yeah, it's a real thing  But isn't that what hobbies are for
    • Yes, a brand new box needs to wear in a little, and the "big box" is actually pretty beefy compared to most. Just treat it nice for 500klm then change the oil, see if it improves
