    Default Steerinh wheel control removal - Please help

    All,

    How do these come off?

    I know the bottom cover has a T20 screw holding it on from the rear of the steering wheel - are the controls the same??

    Do you have to move the airbag at all to remove and plug in new ones..??

    Cheers in advance

    Anthony

    Controls have a little clip accessed from the rear of the wheel that needs a screwdriver inserted and gently prise the catch open.

    No need to remove the airbag.

    Nope, that's the airbag! As above, Torx screws like the insert.

    R/H dash stip just grab one side and pull, comes out as just clipped in. Longer one is the same, open door and start with left side, just pull. Door card strips you need to remove door cards. They are plastic rivetted on, use chissel to take them off. Then glue the new one on, JOB DONE
