How to clean, protect and colour steering wheels

Hi All,

We often get enquiries regarding the refreshing of steering wheels. Here's what we recommend:

Leather steering wheels are exposed to a lot of moisture, skin fats and cosmetic creams and sunlight. Body sweat is especially aggressive against leather. The colour softens and rubs off or the leather cracks.

To prevent such damage clean regularly with COLOURLOCK Mild Leather Cleaner and protect the surface with COLOURLOCK Leather Shield. Greasy or sticky steering wheels should additionally be cleaned with COLOURLOCK Leather Cleaning Spirit.

Old and dry steering wheels should be treated with COLOURLOCK Elephant Leather Preserver. The Preserver keeps the leather smooth.

Damages in the colour coating can be repaired with COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh. The leather must thoroughly be cleaned and degreased before. Smooth rough areas with the Leather Sanding Pad. But not every scratch becomes completely invisible.

Steering wheel leather in classic and vintage cars is often shiny. If such leather is not too damaged, it can be coloured completely with Spray Can Colour for coated leather (limited colour selection). First, degrease thoroughly and smooth rough areas. For this purpose, the steering wheel should be removed from the car. Please refer to the appropriate manual or contact us for help.

The leather won’t look like new. It will look like well-preserved old leather. If this result is not sufficient, it will need to be treated professionally by a leather repair shop. Extremely brittle and broken leather should be re-trimmed.

If you have any questions or need advice please get in touch
