I need to remove the air bag on a 2002 buick regal. i can't see how to unclip or unbolt the air bag. any suggestions


I believe that there are 2, 3, or 4 screws holding the bag assembly to the steering wheel. You can remove the screws from the back of the steering wheel. Be careful handling the airbag. Be sure to disconnect the battery completely, take the battery out of the car.

Does the air bag need to be disconnected when replacing a stearing wheel cruis control switch on a 2001 buick lesabre custom?


Anytime you are working on the steering wheel or steering column, the battery should be disconnected and the power drained from the car.
If a wire is shorted in the air bag circuit the bag could deploy.
Even if the ignition is turned off.
The standard procedure is to leave the door open and disconnect the battery, then wait 5 or 10 min to drain power from the car.

1995 buick lesabre horn goes off randomly and have to hit the steering wheel for it to stop


the contact in the steering wheel is shorting out, all you can do is replace it,, however,, any time your messing with the steering wheel or anything associated with it, you must use extreme care,, prior to doing anything, disconnect the Neg battery terminal,, then the positive one, and wait 10 minutes, this will allow the air bag system time to discharge, the last thing you need is the air bag going off, once this has been done, behind the wheel, there will be recessed screws that hold on the face of the steering wheel cover,, remove those, and pull off the cover gently,, your going to have a single wire, ( there are others, But your concerned with the single one, that's for the horn) make sure that is secure . if it seems that wire hasn't worked loose then your problem is going to be in the contacts on the horn buttons, some of these are actually molded into the cover and can't be replaced,, which would mean you have to replace the cover itself,,

92 Buick Lesabre - no power to wiper motor, suspect switch. Does the steering wheel (containing air bag) have to come off?


Hi did you check the fuse? switch could be bad and your car might have an air bag but there is no need to take the air bag off, there will be 2 screws under the steering cover, just unscrew them and the cover comes off and go from there.

1997 Buick LaSaber High Beam switch does not work. It no longer switches to high beams and does not make a clicking sound when you try to activate the lights. Can I take off the small cover on the side or...


I would have that done somewhere, because if the air bag is in the steering wheel, and the wrong thing is touched, the air bag will deploy, and thats about $6 to $800.00 to replace.

Steering column is becoming loose on 1997 Buick Lesabre.


i dont think their is an adjustment under the sterring wheel. ive had mine apart to do a clockspring. the only nut under the air bag is to hold the steering wheel itself on the column, not to tighten the column itself. try looking under the dash for some studs and nuts holding the whole column itself. that should fix your problem. i dont recommend pulling the airbag and steering wheel for any reason. its very comlpicated under their and all the parts are expensive!

Steering column is becoming loose on 1997 Buick Lesabre. I would like detailed instructions on removing the air bag module and steering wheel enouhg to get to where it needs to be tightened.


Yes there are four bolts halfway down col. this removal procedure may help.REMOVE OR DISCONNECT
  1. Disable SIR System.
  2. Two screws at back of steering wheel.
  3. Position inflator module to gain access to wire connectors. Note wire routing for assembly reference.
  4. Push in and rotate horn contact lead counterclockwise, and remove from the steering column horn tower.
  5. Horn contact lead.
  6. Retainer (CPA) from SIR wiring connector.
  7. SIR wiring connector from inflater module.
  8. On models so equipped, disconnect steering wheel control switch connector.
  9. Inflater module. WARNING: When carrying a live inflator module, make sure bag and trim cover are pointed away from body. Never carry the Inflator module by wires or connector on underside of module. In case of an accidental deployment, bag will then deploy with minimal chance of injury. When placing a live inflator module on a bench or other surface, always face the bag and trim cover away from surface. Never rest a steering column on the steering wheel with inflator module face down and column vertical. This is necessary so that a free space is provided to allow air bag to expand in the unlikely event of accidental deployment. Otherwise personal injury may result.
INSTALL OR CONNECT
  1. Steering wheel control switch connector it equipped.
  2. Retainer (CPA) to SIR wiring connector.
  3. Route horn contact lead to steering column tower; push lead into horn tower and rotate clockwise to locked position.
  4. Horn ground lead.
  5. SIR connector and retainer (CPA).
  6. Inflator module to steering wheel. Install top surface of module first to ease assembly and fit. Do not pinch any wires.
  7. Two screws through back of steering wheel to inflator module.
    • Tighten screws to 3 Nm (27 inch lbs.).
  1. Enable SIR system
