Steering Wheel Removal

Ah, good bye safety! Getting rid of my stock steering wheel for a Momo steering wheel. So far, I know you should disconnect the battery, that's a bonus because I don't even have the battery in my Tiburon right now! ; )

Aftermarket Steering wheel for Airbag? (pic)

I found the above site while searching the site here, seems like it will help get the job done. I guess I need a torx screwdriver. Will pick one up tomorrow when I decide to tackle this. I'm not very concerned about losing my airbag, I'm a very safe driver. I know accidents happen, but I'm just playing the odds here! ;-0

Will I lose anything else other than my safety when switching out steering wheels? I suppose my horn will kick the bucket as well, eh?

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

I have my momo horn hooked up....and if you're jumping on taht Commando wheel from Tibz, then you'll have the exact same one as me. You'll get the airbag light too possibly. But shouldn't be too much of a problem man. Good luck with it

Yeah, I just want to be sure I have the basics down. My car isn't near by, it's in storage, so I can't just go outside try something, come back in and check online. I need to be fairly confident before I attempt it.

Step 1 - Two torq screws underneath
Step 2 - The airbag will left up, disconnect the blue and yellow connectors(Battery fully disconnected, not even in the car, due to other reasons)
Step 3 - Following the pictures - remove the screws from that center piece, and the big nut.
Step 4 - Removing steering wheel
Step 5 - This is where the guide has you putting the stock airbag into the aftermarket wheel. Obviously not an option with the Momo commando wheel. Picture 11 - I still have to remove the back piece, right?

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

I received a pm today from Tibz, saying that it was mine, as long as I sent the money and could get my stock steering wheel. I just assumed everyone most of backed out. It's not like I just went ahead and sent payment without getting the okay from him! I'm not sure why he picked me ahead of you, especially if it's true that you didn't back out..

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

Ah, I got the wheel off, but I didn't disconnect the yellow wire yet. I also didn't take the clock spring off either, does that need to come out?

I don't know where to disconnect the yellow wire from!? I tried from the clock spring, but it didn't seem to work. I tried taking the little clip off from the back of the steering wheel, but it didn't seem like the way to do it. The yellow wire looks like it will pop out from the back of the steering wheel(Pic 5)

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

I see, so I don't disconnect from the clock spring area. There's still two possible spots to disconnect from behind the air bag!? The one with the little clip, or can I just pull it out in pic 5.

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

you can take the rest of it 3 screws, then you can remove the clock spring, make sure the battery is disconceted (small ftal screw driver will work)

hope this helps

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

Hmm... About the only thing that really bothers me about my steering wheel is that I like my g/f's Elantra's 4-spoke much better. I like resting my hand in the bottom hole, and when I drive her car and then mine, I miss that!

How messed up would that be if she came back from Taiwan and I'd switched our steering wheels? Hahaha ok sorry for hyjacking. GL with the install.

Re: Steering Wheel Removal

Picture 5 - It's in my first post, just follow the link

If you follow the yellow cable, it leads to the back of the steering wheel, with the white sticker(Bar code) the green part of the cable connects to it. I'm wondering can I just pull back on the green attachment, or do I have to disconnect the little black clip and go from there? I just don't want to experiment with it in case something happens with the air bag.

Also, I need to remove the clockspring, any tips for that?

Oh yeah, must know that. The majority of the mods we do are illegal! : ) I don't care, I might once I get a fine for one, but probably not..

Can I install an aftermarket steering wheel on my airbag-equipped vehicle?
In recent years, certain aftermarket steering wheel manufacturers have started producing airbag-equipped wheels for newer, popular applications (such as newer Ford Mustangs), so owners of more contemporary vehicles may be in luck if they want a more stylish steering wheel. While it is possible to replace your airbag steering wheel with a more traditional aftermarket steering wheel and hub adapter, there are some issues to take note of if doing so. First, you will obviously lose the airbag itself, and your airbag warning light will likely stay on. Second, you may lose any functions that your factory steering wheel allows, such as radio controls and/or cruise control. Finally, there are some instances where you will lose the self-cancelling feature of your turn signals. In the end, it's up to you to decide how comfortable you are not having an airbag in your steering wheel, and we can make no claims as to the legality of making any changes to your safety restraint system. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration does not currently prohibit private individuals from removing the airbags in their vehicle, although repair shops are prohibited from doing so and state laws may differ from federal laws
