disconnect battery and wait at least 15 minutes for capasitors in airbag module to lose charge VERY IMPORTANT. remove airbag bolts are either from behind or under both cruise switchs witch are secured from behind and fit very tightly in wheel. then remove 2 squib connectors from airbag and connector in clockspring for horn and cruise. remove bolt or nut from shaft and counter weight then use a puller tool with the proper bolts for threaded holes in wheel. do not let the clockspring turn and install new wheel thightening nut or bolt will repress wheel to shaft. don't forget the counter weight goes on under the nut. reconnect all your wiring bolt in airbag and switches. now you want to turn ignition on and then connect the battery. if there is a deployment of bag you wont get hurt that way.
A person removes the airbag, and then the steering wheel with a steering wheel puller. Then pull out the sensor and clock spring, replace both, and replace the steering wheel and the airbag.Ê
On the steering wheel by the airbag
Have a mechanic do it. Air bags are nasty!
in the steering wheel or the passenger side of the dash
no it does not have a steering wheel
Get a star wrench or alen wrench set. Go on back side of sterring wheel and remove the airbag bolts. Slowly pull airbag off the steering wheel. Pay close attention to where the wires are attached let the airbag wrest on steering wheel and then release the cables from steering wheel. remove old harness and replace with new one. be sure you replace all the cables in the right place and carefully replace airback and 2 screws.
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...
You have to replace it, it is under the steering wheel in the column, the ribbon inside that carries the electricity to the airbag breaks.
Steering wheel, passenger side of the dash, optional in front seats/
Go on you tube and type your question there is a video there that showes you how to do that.
I have not seen a way to do it without removing the steering wheel (and airbag).
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.
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.
Yes, but you need to swap your airbag system if your GTI steering wheel hasn't got one. This will mean disconnecting your battery for at least 10 mins disconnecting airbag system, which will mean removing centre consol. Best get a Hayes Manual.
It doesn't. Your face will be less damaged hitting the airbag than if it hits 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.
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 remove the steering wheel. You will need a steering wheel puller that is fairly cheap to buy or rent.
no the 96 steering wheel is different
you would need to disconnect the airbag then pop off the horn pad and remove the airbag then unbolt the steering wheel.
You don't have an airbag
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.
I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan: Just fixed June 12th,The Airbag light was staying on,the the horn went as well as the cruise control, It is called the CLUTHCH CLOCK that was replace on mine: It is located in your steering Wheel,Not a do it yourself job, It is where you airbag is, cost $129.99 for the part in Canada about an hours work if you know what your doing.
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.
