I've been trying to replace my steering coupling, and it's been kind of a
pain so far. At this point, I just took the horn pad off to try to take the
steering wheel off (in order to remove the steering column), and the 27mm
nut holding the wheel down is just completely stuck. Is there another way of
doing this? I heard from a few people that I should try removing the
steering gear box and remove the coupling that way, but am not sure if
that'll work in my car, which is a '79 300SD (W116). Alternatively, any
suggestions on getting that nut of without damaging the steering column?
Can't just whack it, really...
