Remove horn cover, just pops off or slides off. Disconnect wire and set cover aside. Oh, point the wheel straight up and down. Find the right socket and remove that big nut right there once that nut is off you can use a steering wheel puller and remove it, OR what I do, is just start pulling on the wheel. Pull on top then bottom, side to side, it takes a little muscle to do so. It will pop off. Once off, put new wheel on making sure it's straight up and down, and put the nut back on the horn cover. Boom, your done.

On my chevy 2500 hd truck the air bag light wont go off what is my problem?


Its called a "clocking spring" and yours may be broken. You may even be hearing a noise when you turn the wheel. Its under the steering wheel air bag. Its function is so that during an impact that sets off the air bag system it tells the computer what position the steering wheel has been turned to. This is so the bag will fire only if the steering wheel is within a certain number of degree's, left or right. Its much more complicated than that but, you get the idea.

Mostly this occurs on vehicles that see heavy driving use, and when maintenance is done on the steering gear and the disconnected wheel is allowed to rotate past its normal limits.

It is a complicated repair and not a job for the average driveway mechanic.

How do you repair or replace a wiper switch. I want to know how to disassemble the housing


STEERING Steering Wheel REMOVAL & INSTALLATION All Series CAUTION
When performing service around the SIR system components or wiring, the SIR system MUST be disabled. Failure to do so could result in possible air bag deployment, personal injury or unneeded SIR system repairs.
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. On models equipped with a drivers side air bag, perform the following procedure:
    1. Disable the Supplemental Restraint System (if equipped).
    2. On all but 1996–98 models equipped with a air bag, unfasten the screws at the rear of the steering wheel.
    3. On 1996–98 models equipped with a air bag, turn the steering wheel 90° to access the rear shroud holes to the inflator module. Insert a screwdriver in the holes and push the leaf spring to release the pin. Turn the steering wheel 180° to access the remaining shroud holes and using the screwdriver, release the remaining pins.
    4. Tilt the inflator module rearward from the top to access the wiring. Tag and unplug the lead wire from the clip on the module, the lead wire from the clip on the steering wheel and the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) and retainer from the module.
  3. If not equipped with a drivers side air bag, remove the horn pad or button cap and disconnect the horn wires. Fig. 1: Remove the horn button cap 87988p13.jpg
    Fig. 2: Disengage the horn wiring 87988p14.jpg
    Fig. 3: If equipped, remove the snapring from the steering shaft 87988p15.jpg

  4. Mark the steering wheel-to-steering shaft relationship.
  5. If equipped, remove the snapring from the steering shaft.
  6. Remove the nut from the steering shaft. WARNING
    Don't hammer on the steering shaft!
  7. Remove the steering wheel with a puller. To install:
  8. Install the wheel. The turn signal control assembly must be in the Neutral position to prevent damaging the canceling cam and control assembly. Tighten the nut to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
  9. Install the horn pad and horn contact (if equipped).
  10. If equipped with a drivers side air bag, install the inflator module as follows:
    1. Attach the lead wire to the clip on the module, the lead wire to the clip on the steering wheel and the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) and retainer to the module.
    2. On 1996–98 models, install the inflator module by pressing it firmly into the steering wheel so that all four notched pins in the leaf spring are fully engaged. Be very careful that you do not pinch any wires.
    3. On all but 1996–98 models equipped with a air bag, install the inflator module and tighten the screws to 27 inch lbs. (3 Nm).
  11. Connect the battery ground cable and enable the SIR system (if equipped). Fig. 4: Remove the nut and washer from the steering shaft 87988p16.jpg
    Fig. 5: Use a puller to separate the steering wheel 87988p17.jpg

How do I replace steering wheel on 1995 chevy 1/2 ton pickup? will air bag deploy on me?


Well first disconnect the positive side of the battery. Then I recommend grounding the positive battery cable to the frame or negative side of the battery. (This will insure you have all possible stored voltage removed from your system). Your 95 model has two types of steering wheels and air bags. Model 1 there are four holes in the back of the steering wheel. You simply push a small punch or ice pick in the center to release the airbag from the steering wheel. If you have the later model 1995, there is a slot and you have to push a wire clip that holds the bag to the steering wheel. Once you get the air bag off the wheel, it just unplugs and you remove the steering wheel using a puller. All GM air bag circuits are yellow. They won't deploy without power. Good luck, I hope this helps.

The steerin wheel screws have come loose inside the steering colum, if you can move the steering wheel up and down and back and forth you will have to remove the air bag the horn and horn button and tighten the two screws that are tork heads #8 to fix this issue.
Comments: Aug 20, 2009- If you want to fix this yourself you can do this it takes two to three hours with out the right tools, If you rent the tools to remove the steering wheel and the u clamp to remove the snap ring it will cost you almost nothing and would take an hour. You can rent it from schucks or autozone, you need steering wheel puller and screw on u clamp to remove plastic cover to ge tto the screws, I am also assumeing it is a tilt wheel. Disconnect the battery pull two bolt air bag retainer covers remove two bolts holding air bag on, next disconnect the air bag, Next remove 3 philips screws holding the horn assembly plastic and metal ring, Put tothe side in order how the screws and two parts go, if there are wires for a cruise control disconnect them. Next Remove 3/4 inch center steering nut, install U bolt on the bolt thread that you removed the nut off of screw down till the plastic cap is 1/4 inch down allowing you to getto the center snap ring, using too picks work snap ring out of the grouve then remove the u clamp. once you pull the clap off the plastic plate whell come off and the plate is keyed to go on one way. after you remove plastic cover you will see three screws tork head type #8 or #6 buy a tube ot thread lock #605 remove the screws and put a drop on each screw then screw down. once screws are tight make sure the steering ball is not broke it is a plastic ball with a notch on one end with a spring on the other. Connect the battery up, install key and turn the key on put foot on brake then shif the shifter selecter back and forth if it operates somothly your done, if it gives you trouble still then check the pin in the pivot point on the shift lever, if it looks broke hammer it out and take to the parts store get new roll pin and hammer new one pack in with a center hole punch. then reinstall the parts. If you run into trouble you can post here and I can help you more.
Thanks for using fixya and have a good day!

2003 cavalier horn problem


It's a pretty long procedure to type out,so go to autozone.com,register and input your vehicle info,then you can access their online repair guide,they have the procedure to disarm the air bag(s),they are under the chassis electrical heading,follow them to a tee so you don't set the air bag off,the cover maybe screwed on thru the back of the steering wheel or may just be held in place with tension clips,the repair guide isn't clear on this so look for srews first,if you don't see any you should be able to pry gently off with a screwdriver,the horn switch will be in the cavity underneath or possibly attached to the back of the air bag itself,it's just a small springed tab with a wire attached that touches the metal of the steering column.I hope this info helps and please be careful to follow the instructions.

A rattle inside the steering wheel.


i would imagine the spring clip for the horn may be loose, or floating around in there, since you shouldnt have even touched the turn signal or any components there, i would definatlysay thats the problem, as far as the air bag, make sure to disconnect the battery and it should be ok, but work with it at your own risk

You first have to disarm and remove the air bag (unscrews with bolts from behind the steering wheel) and then you will see the screws for the switches. Only the silverado awitches will work.
