You may want to bring this to a dealer....or if you feel ok with the disassembly, unhook your battery, and wait at least 10 minutes for the capacitor to discharge so the bag, or bags wont deploy...then from the rear of the steering wheel, remove the screws, and unhook the airbag..please remember, this can be dangerous, and caution is advised...with the utmost care...Johnny

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.

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.

To remove an airbag from the steering wheel of a Corolla first make sure that the airbag system is disabled. Undo the two Tork screws on either side of the wheel. Once this is removed the connector for the airbag should be visible. Push the clip towards to horn pad and it should come out.

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.

No, it is illegal to remove the SRS from any vehicle you drive on public roads.

To remove the driver's steering wheel airbag on a 1999 Holden Commodore you will need a special set of tools to remove the 4 to 6 security screws that are holding it in. If the vehicle came equipped with a airbag, it needs to have one to remain road safe.

you have to remove the steering wheel. (if it has an airbag, be very careful not to set it off.) if no airbag, just remove the steering wheel, and on the ignition switch there is a bolt that simply screws out. remove the ignition switch, and replace with the new one. line up the bolt holes, and replace bolt. put steering wheel back on, and youre done.

Disconnect battery Remove bolts holding air bag assembly to steering wheel (from side of steering wheel you don't see when sitting in driver seat) Remove air bag and disconnect electric connector

To remove a steering wheel, a person will need a steering wheel puller from an auto part store, from there after the airbag is removed, place the tool over the steering wheel and follow its directions. It will pull the steering wheel off by applying pressure to the middle and pulling everything else up.

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...

Airbag disableTurn the sterring wheel to the straight ahead position, place the ignition switch in lock, remove the key, then remove the airbag fuse from the fuse block. Remove the knee bolster and sound insulator panel below the instrument panel. Unplug the yellow connector position assurance (CPA) sterring column harness connector at the base of the steering column.

disarm the air bag and take the center section out of the steering wheel that has the airbag in it and then there is a nut holding the wheel on, take the nut loose and then you need a steering wheel puller to get the steering wheel off the splines.

remove battery terminals. so steering wheel airbag does not go off. remove steering covers. remove steering wheel. 2/3 torq screws underneath steering wheel. remove both stalks. then see what else is left and figure it out yourself. many thanks.

on the back of the steering wheel neer the center area not the part you hold in your hands behind the horn area there are 4 torx or metric bolts remove those bolts and the air bag can be removed do this only after you have disconected the battery

The first thing to do when replacing an AU Falcon steering wheel is to disconnect the battery as there is an air bag that contains a small explosive material that is potentially dangerous. Next, find the screws that hold the steering wheel cover, located on the sides of the steering wheel (under round plastic covers that can be removed with a small screw driver). Use a Torq #9 screwdriver to remove the two screws underneath these covers. Carefully lift out the steering wheel hub & airbag. Unplug the airbag. Use a Torq #9 screwdriver to remove the center steering wheel bolt. Use a steering wheel puller per factory specifications to remove the steering wheel.

AIRBAG WARNING: Before you remove any steering wheel parts on an airbag equipped car it is important that you disconnect the negative battery cable to disable the airbag system. A loose airbag deploying directly in your face can cause serious injury, and could possibly kill you DEAD.Having said that, I'm not sure exactly the procedure on a Seville, but I'll give you a basic run down of how to take off most steering wheels.1)Disconnect negative battery cable2)Determine how airbag module is attached to steering wheel. The airbag module is in the front center of the steering wheel and is the part of the steering wheel you see. It likely has a vehicle emblem right on it. There may be plastic covers on the side or back of steering wheel that hide airbag retainer nuts. Some airbag modules are simply held in by clips and can be pulled out. Once you determine how the airbag is fastened remove it from the steering wheel. There will be an electrical connector to the airbag (usually yellow). Carefully disconnect electrical connector and set airbag aside.2)Disconnect horn wire, and any other electrical wires used inside the steering wheel. There should be connectors for all wires.3)NOTE:ENSURE STEERING WHEEL IS POINTED STRAIGHT AHEAD PRIOR TO REMOVAL. At this stage you should have access to the steering wheel nut. Remove the steering wheel nut.Some steering wheels will simply come off at this stage. However most wheels must be pressed off. Use a steering wheel puller to pull wheel. A puller set can be rented at most auto parts stores if you don't have one.4)CLOCKSPRING WARNING:Behind the steering wheel there is a component known as a clockspring. It houses the wires for the airbag and other steering wheel electronics. It allows the steering wheel to spin and maintain electrical connections. It is important that the clockspring or wheels are not turned while the steering wheel is out. If the clockspring is turned too many times over it will break causing steering wheel electronics not to work(and an expensive repair). It must remain centered at all times.
