    Default Help, airbag removal etc...

    I've read all the various threads I can find on this, stereo switches have been removed, but I still can't work out how the airbag pops off.

    Secondly are the airbag plugs attached to the steering wheel?? as my new steering wheel has a single plug inside it and my airbag is a twin plug type.

    There are a couple of recesses on the back of the wheel - not the ones that unscrew the radio controls but further in. You need to pop a flatblade screwdriver in and twist it to prise the little clip thing on the airbag to release it.

    I'm afraid you're stuffed then m8. The new airbag has to have the same number of plugs as the plugs are inside the column. You need to source an airbag off a car earlier then MY 2003.5 as that's when they changed to two plugs.
