Replacing my steering wheel

Post by kevincraigmagic » Sun May 06, 2018 11:56 pm

Anything I should be aware of? It’s on its way already. I’m ok with the fitting (I think) just concerned about air bag!! Will it still work? I’m assuming it will as long as it’s reconnected correctly.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for that. I had seen this article but extra revision is always good. I’ll keep you posted

So replaced the steering wheel within an hour.

Basically there’s three bolts and three connectors. All very straight forward.

As previously mentioned the DSC light stays on but I’m hoping this will rectify itself in time after relearning the wheel

Wow that video was a whole lot of overkill for something that's in the FAQ post here. Image
