How to replace the steering wheel?

5180 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 don't mind, what did Alan charge you? I'm interested in seeing the pics. Although if it were a year long process :eek:, i would not be a happy camper....

i wonder if dwm has made any progress....
I have not, I've been busy with suspension changes in preparation for upcoming events. Priority 1 at the moment: put the rear end back together. :)
