My Euro steering wheel is suffering from LWS, more commonly known as loose wheel syndrome.

This is the effect of driving with your hand constantly twisting the steering wheel, eventually breaking the foam away from the metal skeleton inside. creating a loose and cracking steering wheel.

I have been contemplating a few ideas to fix it and would like some opinions.

1. mix a strong liquid glue with water until very runny and inject it in several places in the wheel.

2. make a clean insecion and place glue between the frame and the foam, clamp together until dry

3. just leather wrap as is.

I will wrap the steering wheel in leather after it hope fully gets fixed

comments welcome!

I noticed the euro wheels are a little bit thicker than the standard US. I'm sure that makes it easier for it to be broken down like that.

My US wheels suffer the same problem.

If you like the look of a wrapped steering wheel, I would do #1 then #3.
