want to install new seat hinge covers on 1982 380sl. cannot get the back rest tilt handwheel off. How is this done?
Not sure, but on some earlier handwheels on the BACK side of the handwheel there are access holes through which you could push and object to pop the center out. My guess is that if I tried to do that I would break the center piece. So I recommend you wait for a better reply than mine!
