Hi, Marv.

Since you posted into the "general" forum, didn't complete your BW profile for location and vehicle, and didn't otherwise identify your car in any way, I can only suggest that you use whatever tool is neede for that purpose on your car.

If you click the user cp link you can complete the profile, and if you look down the forum to the section that is specific to whatever car you own, then you can search that forum or post in there and the people most familiar with your model may be able to answer your question.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

Sorry i'll do that after this post. The problem is I don't know what tool to use...thats why i asked the question....It is a 1994 benz E320....there is a coin rattling around under the horn cover and there are two holes in back of the steering wheel which i know contains screws to remove this cover...I just need to know what kind of screws they are.

If it's like the 210 they are indeed torx, T30 IIRC. But the geniuses in the W124 forum will know for sure, so check them out.

The truth is that even the same MY come with different fasteners. Most likely it is Philips screw, but if you have one of those miniature cameras -taking a picture would be a good start.
The old fashion mirror suppose to work as well.

When you look it up, if it is a cross is a Phillips, if it is a multipoint star is a Torx, if it is a hex is Allen (but the Torx should work). And Kajtek says if is Torx is a T30 IIRC.

Cheers, JV

Marv - what you describe as the 'horn cover' is most likely the airbag. The WIS advises great care in handling this unit, and provides the correct sequence for its safe removal.

Post your question in the right forum, with all the necessary details of your model, and we can give you further advice with WIS data, eg torque values for re-assembly.

First, use a mirror and a small flashlight to see what you have.
