Default HOW TO: Remove and Install Steering Wheel and Air Bag!

1. Disconnect Battery

2. On the Back of the wheel, There are two open holes. Inside each of these holes are a Torx Bolt. Remove each and the airbag will pull away from the steering wheel.

3. Unplug the Airbag wiring harness

4. MAKE SURE YOU WHEELS ARE STRAIGHT. To Pull the wheel you will need a steering wheel puller. You can get these at any auto parts store. There is one bolt in the middle of the Wheel. Using a 1/2" drive ratchet or breaker bar, remove the bolt.

5. Attach the pulle to the wheel using the two supplied bolts. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT THREAD PITCH AND BOLT SIZE.

6. Tighten the puller Until the wheel Pops off. You will have to unplug the radio control harness and pull the horn wire, which has a spring on the end.

Installation is the reverse of removal, Just make sure you line the wheel up straight.

I WILL HAVE IMAGES LATER.
