DISCONNECT THE Battery 1ST

and wait for 20 minutes before starting to disconnect any cables

this is very important.

there will either be 2 torx screws 1 either side of the steering wheel

or 3 holes (@ 3o'clock, 1/2 past & 9 o'clock positions) for releasing the air bag

using a pin / drill bit insert pin / drill into the hole and keep pressing to release the air bag

when pressing give the airbag a gentle pull to help release it.

to re fit just give it a firm press or maybe a gentle tap

then reconnect the Battery.

Thanks got that sorted. Theres a central swival bit with white tapes on it. Does it come out seperately or does that whole unit come out as one.

the swivel part is a clock spring its flat cable that lets you rotate the steering wheel and still have all your

steering wheel functions working ,if you do have to remove this cable i think its held in with 4 screws

luckily i haven't had to replace the stalks you need to change so i haven't ventured too faer into the

steering wheel.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
