How to replace the steering wheel?

5228 Views 37 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  AZGregM
Well I finally got my alcantara steering wheel done in an acceptable fashion and I would like to install it on the car to see how it works out. Thus my question here. I am mostly concerned about the airbag and the slip ring (I do not want to damage it). So what would be the procedure to install a new steering wheel on our cars reusing the existing slip ring? Is this something I should try myself or pay 1 hour of labor to the dealer to do it?

I would appreciate any suggestions.

If you guys are interested, we can provide the name of the place we outsource to. They may or may not stock Alcantara, but we could sell pieces at cost.

They don't have perfect quality either, but they are quick. And honest. They are in Texas.

Now you have PM. You try them and report back how it works out.
