Congratulations on your X3 and welcome to the forum. I can see from your recent post that you changed your steering wheel cover. I guess you are talking about the plastic trim which is known for peeling off? I have the same issue and I have been planning on doing it myself on my X3 from a long time but I had read about the possibility of the airbag deploying when you try taking the trim out. Can you please tell me how did you take that plastic trim out? I was told that the best this is to disconnect the -ve on the battery and then press in the 2 small little holes at the back side of the steering and the center airbag cover pops out. Later you can unscrew the plastic trim.
