I've used the leather wrap before on a Mercedes that I used to own. Although it felt and looked fine, it made the steering wheel diameter slightly larger, so it did not feel right.

If I were you. I would either buy a used steering wheel in good condition, or alternatively have a leather repair shop fix your steering wheel. Its not that hard, nor expensive, and if done right, should come out looking brand new.

How hard is it to get the steering wheel off?

it's really not that hard. i had to do it to get to the window wiper switch. you basically need like a t30 torx bit, a long philips head screw driver, a small flat heat for popping off some of the sides and a steering wheel puller to pop the well off. i think that's all basically. if you get the haynes manual it tells you how to do it. you should remove the negative terminal from the battery don't want the airbag possibly deploying.
