I'm upgrading my standard plastic steering wheel for a leather one I picked up at u-pull. I have read the how-to's and unfortunately they only explain how to remove it, I learned that valuable lesson already. I want to know about the install, if a puller is needed to take it off, is anything special required to put it back on?
I replaced mine without a puller, just needed some rubber mallet work on the backside of the old wheel
The reinstall is as simple as lining it up and tightening the center bolt
Total time for the wheel swap was under 30 minutes (45 mins if you count the 15 mins I left the battery disconnected before starting the old wheel removal)
Well, embarassingly enough, I have double that in removal time alone, mind you I had no idea what was involved, and had every size torx except the one I needed to remove the airbag assembly...busted up the metal bracket pretty good. On top of that it was pretty frigid out,snowing, and sitting on the floor of the car instead of the seat.
I'm glad to hear install is fairly simple. Can I not just pull the fuse for the airbag, or could re-installing it set it off?
