    Default Anyone in the North West willing to fit my new steering wheel

    I am getting a new leather sri steering wheel delivered next week and realy don't fancy messing my car up in any way.
    So my request is that if anyone in the North West would be willing to do this (even for a small fee) i would be most happy

    all you need mate is a long flat blade screw driver to release the air bag and a torx50 male eassy should take about ten mins

    OK but what will stop the airbag from going off?

    Disconnect the battery for 30 mins. It will discharge the firing capacitors.

    1. find radio code (as you will need it)
    2. turn steering wheel to expose the two holes at the back (quarter turn to right)
    3. disconnect battery
    4. have cup of tea for 30mins or so
    5. find a small flat blade screwdriver to stick in the holes
    6. gently ease off airbag (being paranoid in case it goes bang)
    7. disconnect revelant connectors
    8. find a T50 TORX bit (found mine in halfrauds)
    9. remove bolt
    10. remove steering wheel ( mine came off easily)
    11. fit new steering wheel
    12 connect airbag
    13 reconnect battery
    14 code radio
    15 stand back and admire

    if just changing airbag steps 1 to 7 apply..........

    When the guy at CCS fitted mine he didn't disconnect the battery, he said all would be ok as long as the ignition isn't turned on

    Full canbus (wheels on steering wheel) - no

    Half canbus(buttons on steering wheel) - yes

    When you put in the flat blade screwdriver just wiggle it and pull the airbag towards you. Do one side alternatively and it will ease out. Just made sure your wheels are straight when you put the steering wheel on.
