    Hi again,

    Seems to be a thing with the rubber/leather grips on the steering wheel melting etc. Does somebody sell replacement bits the steering anywhere at all and is it easy enough/possible to replace them?

    Thanks

    Ive found the best thing to do is to get the complete steering wheel refurbished, a chap called "snappy" on clio sport does a great job, failing him royal steering wheels...

    £170 from snappy for this level of workmanship :

    It's 2 years old now and still looks just as good. Definitely worth it.

    I have a couple of new spare grips you can have if you like? Think they are plastic ones rather than rubber as I bought them a few years ago from a guy making them on the cliosport forum.

    I have a sparco suede wheel and the spare wheel in the garage in case I ever decide to put the old one back on.

    Let me know

    Cheers

    Pete
