I need to help a buddy swap his steering wheel....he has the non-sport (4-spoke) steering wheel.....how do you remove it?


Thanks!

Do a search in the DIY section for the exact procedures cause I found some, but I believe u use a torx driver to unscrew four torx screws in the back of the steering wheel and the airbag should pop out...then use a wrench to undo the middle bolt and your done...I believe this is how it's supposed to be done but check the DIY section cause there is a good writeup about it...

Before you do anything, disconnect the battery. That way, when you re-install the wheel, or put in the new wheel, the airbag reset light won't go on.

OK, i found a DIY.....

1. Disconnect the battery
2. Remove the torx screws holding in the airbag
3. Remove the bolt holding on the steering wheel

Is this correct? I have heard that the round airbag has spring clips holding it in, while others have torx screws....is this right?

Also, what are the sizes of the torx and nut? I assume they are the same as the M wheel: #20 torx, and 10mm nut driver

Can someone confirm?
