    To be honest it is quite hard to explain.

    IMPORTANT - Disconnect battery, wait a few minutes... Or you may get a face full of airbag.

    FROM MEMORY !

    For 4 spoke steering wheel - I assume 3 spoke is similar.
    Remove airbag from steering wheel by releasing the spring clips from behind (screwdriver in the holes and lever the spring retainer out on both sides), and unclips the 2 connectors. Place airbag face up on the floor out of harms way.

    Undo the centre bolt, but leave in a couple of threads whilst you release the steering wheel. They have a habit of suddenly releasing and hitting you in the face !

    Disconnect the steering wheel controls plug.
    When loose fully remove the bolt and remove the steering wheel unthreading the wires / connectors.

    The ribbon cable cartridge is now visible. It just pulls off (I think) and the ribbon will unwind.....

    The plug needs to be disconnected from the CIM module behind the steering wheel. You may have to remove the CIM from the steering column and split into the 2 parts by removing the screws and clips. The main multiplug to wiring harness is on the back on the left of the column. The retention clip needs pulling out and the plug will come out.

    I don't know if you can buy the ribbon wire on it's own.

    When it's all back together the airbag just clips on - re-connect the plugs (be careful they are fully connected and the retainer pushed in) and just align and push on.


    As I said this is from memory and may not be fully accurate as it was a while ago, but it is fairly straight forwards. The ribbon position needs setting - instructions are on the front of the cartridge.
