1996 SL2
Default Steering Wheel Shaft Thread Pitch

Hi guys,

Does anyone know the steering wheel thread pitch on a 1996 Saturn SL2? Someone thought it would be a good idea to bash on it with a hammer and now the threads are a bit smashed. I'd like to chase the threads with a die, but considering it is a large size, I'm not sure that's something a local hardware store would have. I've done some googling, but I can't find the thread pitch for the shaft. If anyone has this info, please send it my way! Thanks guys!

If you removed the steering wheel attachment nut, take it to a machine shop or tool and die distributor to find someone capable of determining thread pitch. If you get that far, be prepared to pay for one die to chase threads.

Unfortunately the nut is also damaged and the threads are done.

I think a cheapo plastic caliper and a trip to Fastenal (I have been able to find any bolt or nut I ever needed there) should solve this for you. If I'm in PAP near here, I will look for a Saturn S-car and get back to you.

After some fiddling around, I managed to find the size.

The steering wheel shaft thread is an M14 x 1.5.

Thank you for your searching out this information and posting it. After messing up the threads on mine (because the "puller bolt slipped"), now I can find a die to repair the threads and get back on the road! This is a great resource!
