Are the mk2 steering wheels naturally shiney?

Recommended Posts

As I bought some auto finesse "total" all purpose cleaner but the steering wheel is still shiney. I was hoping this would bring it back to matte?

What wheel do you have? Title says 'Mk2', but profile is 2016 year which is Mk3 as far as I'm aware. You can get leather wheels on Ebay for £30 odd...

ive got a mk2 1.6 tdci sport on an 11 plate but its the 2010 shape, not sure why my profile says 2016 lol

I bought a leather cruise wheel brand new for my Mk2.5 and it was textured/matt.

If yours is smooth and shiny through years of wear then there's not much you can do.  If it's just rank from years of greasy hands then a degreaser should help.  I use kitchen antibac wipes on mine...

A magic eraser and a bit of water is usually more than enough to restore the leather of the steering wheel to the original matte factory finish.

However a magic eraser is basically an abrasive so regular use on the steering wheel should be avoided at all cost. Regular use will damage the surface of the leather.
