yes you can. You will need to purchase a steering wheel installation kit from a company like Grant. This should be available anywhere that sells steering wheels such as a auto parts store. The only thing that requires a professional is removal of the old airbag, unless it has already been deployed. IF the airbag is still good, have a professional remove the old air bag. If the airbag has already gone off, then you can remove the steering wheel just as any other car and replace it with an aftermarket wheel and installation kit.
In the center of the driver side airbag on the steering wheel. There will be two small "horn" imprints on the airbag cover. This car was the Olds clone of the Pontiac Grand Am.
Use a basic steering wheel puller. It should come with three different sets of bolts one will match up and then tighten the center bolt until steering wheel comes off.
Typically, replacing any factory steering wheel that has the airbag incorporated into it, with any type or brand of aftermarket steering wheel, the airbag diagnostic module will "see" that there is an airbag missing, and it will request an illumination of the airbag/srs warning lite...
I would not even try this if your unsure at all. I did it to my 1990 firebird, and on most cars they are not that bad, but for the firebird you have to take apart the the steering column. unhook the battery if you have an airbag. remove the airbag, remove the steering wheel, and then there is a whole lot of stuff you have to remove to get to the turn signal swith, which is not easy to get off or put back on. And I did this at the shop with all the fancy tools and everything too, and it still was difficult.
You can pull the airbag fuse, disconnect sir yellow wire at steering column that goes to the clockspring, or disconnect the battery neg cable. The last is foolproof but will clear out anything with a memory.
I have not seen a way to do it without removing the steering wheel (and airbag).
Hi, the faulty part is called a clock spring and it is located inside the steering column. It is a device that allows the steering wheel to be turned without losing electrical contact with the airbag sensor in the steering wheel. Do not try to replace it yourself, take it to the garage, but do have it replaced as your airbag is likely non-functional. Ray
you have to take the airbag out first.
no it does not have a steering wheel
You don't have an airbag
The driver airbag is always located inside the steering wheel.Look at the steering wheel cover for the letters SRS or the word "AirBag".If the airbag does exist,you will see that written.
simply pull tha airbag fuse. remove the 4 torx head scres behind the airbag and remove airbag. unplug theelectrical connector. remove the big nut holding the steering whell. use a puller to remove the steering wheel.
It doesn't. Your face will be less damaged hitting the airbag than if it hits the steering wheel.
No, the airbag system, and the steering system are completely different. The airbag, in the centre of the steering wheel (i assume) can be replaced. Lets say for example, your vehicle has a crash, and the airbag is deployed, you will need to replace it, and then remove any fault codes from the airbag module (or ECU). If the airbag light is illuminated, but the airbag hasn't deployed, this indicates a general fault (which shouldnt be ignored) Personally id have this investigated by a trained technician, as an exploding airbag isn't something i'd like to be standing next to! SRS systems are complex and rely on a control module, its more electric than it is mechanical, replacing a steering column would just simply; replace the steering column...
you would need to disconnect the airbag then pop off the horn pad and remove the airbag then unbolt the steering wheel.
To remove the steering wheel start by disconnecting the negative battery terminal to prevent accidental airbag deployment. Then remove the screws on the backside of the steering wheel to remove the airbag. Disconnect the airbag wiring connectors. Remove the steering column shaft nut and remove the steering wheel with a puller. Do not yank, hammer, pry the steering wheel off as this could result in steering shaft damage.
in the steering collum behind the steering wheel
4 bolts are romoved from the backsode of the steering wheel. If airbag equipped remove airbag fuse first. Then remove airbag/ horn/ center assembly. Remove large nut from center of wheel, then pull wheel with steering wheel puller.
In the steering column. You'll have to remove the steering wheel with a steering wheel puller tool. This can be a dangerous repair job due to the airbag in the steering wheel. Get a Haynes or Chilton's manual for the details on how to do this as well as how to disarm the airbag system.
yes but your air bag ligh will alway be on. I wold not do it
Hi Its behind the airbag inside the steering wheel. Lee Hi Its behind the airbag inside the steering wheel. Lee
No, it is illegal to remove the SRS from any vehicle you drive on public roads.
