Do you absolutely need the specialty tool I read about in the Mitchell catalog? Is there an easier way? Just need some advice from someone? I got the car dismantled (covers top & bottom, lower dash, etc) removed. Just cannot get the rear steering wheel cover lose and the leather front(air bag) lose.
