I have not seen a way to do it without removing the steering wheel (and airbag).
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
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
to replace airbag, go to a steering colomn specialist. air bag replacememt is a specialist job
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.
These and steering airbags need to be professionally installed by a machanic or dealership.
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...
Go on you tube and type your question there is a video there that showes you how to do that.
Airbag is disabled. Possible broken spring under the steering wheel or bad connection.
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.
You always disconnect the battery before you take the airbag off. It is possible to have a spark when you unplug the airbag if you leave the battery hooked up. The same thing when you put it back . Reassemble the steering wheel before you hook the battery up.
