How to Fix Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Steering Wheel

 

Here is a quick overview of how to replace a steering wheel on the Little Tikes Cozy Coupes.  For the purposes of this post, I am using a 1990s Little Tikes Cozy Coupe. I will add measurements in the future to be sure that this can be used for other car replacments.

The basic set-up is simple. There is the steering wheel, a washer, and a steering wheel clip. All your car needs is the right size of hole, both in diameter, and in depth. I am pretty sure you could modify the replacement parts to fit different dimensions though. That will have to wait for another post. 🙂

So the steering wheel clip slides into the bottom of the steering wheel, with the “Y” end up. Push it up until the clip ends pop out of the holes in the tube.

Put the steering wheel into the hole, and underneath, before it goes through the other side, hold the washer on the underside of the hole, and thread the washer and the otherside of the hole onto the bottom tube of the steering wheel. The washer will slide upwards and over the two nobs that are expsoed from the steering wheel clip inside the steering wheel. If you need to take it off again, push in the two exposed clips and let the washer slide back down the tube again.

I will get the dimensions and add to this post as soon as I can.

  1. I picked up a cozy coupe at a garage sale and the front wheels just spin around. I couldn’t even push it to my car because th wheels wanted to go sideways! It is older but the wheels seem to be fine and look to be original. Any ideas??

    • It sounds like either the front wire forms are bent, from maybe being run over by a car, or one was replaced, and it was using the wrong side of wire form. If you look at your wireforms they should have an “L” or “R” for left and right stamped into them at the bend below where they connect to the body of the car. IF you find you have two wire forms that are both “R”s then one needs to be replaced. If they are oddly bent, then possibly both need to be replaced. If you take some pictures, and send them to me, I will try to help where I can. Melissa 🙂

  2. I also just got a Cozy Coupe at a thrift store whose wheels go around and around. The steering wheel doesn’t steer, but the horn works. I notice that the wire is loose from where it attaches to the car. Can you please give me some help? Thanks

    • I am thinking that is a newer coupe, which I don’t have any experience with. The older ones are just plastic parts that push into the car and clip to stay in. I know there was one where the steering wheel had lots of buttons, and electronic components. Could you take a picture of it, so I might see what I can do to help you? Melissa 🙂

    • I have made some stickers for the center of the horn. It all depends on how much of it is missing, or if it just doesn’t work anymore. What model did you have?
      Melissa 🙂
