SOURCE: Steering wheel removal

first you want to unplug the air bag. you do this buy removing the plastic surround around the steering column, where the ignition is, just below the steering wheel itself, then you have to remove the air bag by removing the bolts from the back of the steering wheel...

then get a steeering wheel removal kit, autozone has a loan a tool program.

put the steering wheel tool on and turn oit with a wrench adn the wheel will pop off...

SOURCE: how do you disconnect driver side (steering wheel) air bag

on the airbag connector there is a yellow/orange plastic securing tab that is hinged-with the battery disconnected you use a small pocket screw driver and pry the securing tab up easily so not to damage it and then the airbag connector can be removed by gently prying it out with the small pocket screw driver

SOURCE: air bag remove 98 gmc sonoma

If the brake lights will not turn off, the switch on the brake pedal is shorted or damaged. Look for it on the brake pedal under the dash. You will not need to remove the steering wheel.

If you have a Mini that was buit pre 2006 i.e. a first gen Mini then your new steering wheel will not fit, you need to buy a 1st gen Mini 3 spoke steering wheel.

Akso, for issues regarding the airbag light DO NOT pay the dealer silly amounts of money to solve the problem. Please visit the following thread

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.

Sensor light come on after brake replacement

Yes and could be the wheel sensor was not hooked up or damaged during the brake servicing....but the air bag problem is probably not related...a proper diagnosis would require that the codes be retrieved from the computer then go from there.

Removeing the wheel stearing I am trying to remove the wheel stearing on my 97 MB W 210, how to remove it?

If you don't have a steering wheel puller you first need to go buy one. Then go to the library. They have the books or mitchell online for free.

The most important procedure when removing an air bag steering wheel, if applicable, is to disconnect the battery for 30 minutes to discharge the Airbag module or else the bag could deploy while working on it.

2002 saturn columb is lose. need to pull steering wheel, but has air bag. never done it before.

Well , Let me start here if your saturn has tilt first check the lever that lets the stearing wheel go up and down . If that isnt the problem then first you need see if 1 the column its self is loose than you need to remove the plate were your hood release cable is located once you remove the 7mm bolts and the shield look under dash were stearing column is and thier is 4 13 mm bolts that actually hold it up tight against the dash if they are tight follow the stearing column down towards gas pedal thier are two bolts that that go through a bracket from left to right on one side its a 45 mm torxs male and a 14 mm nut check them for tightness if any are loose retighten to factory specs and use lock tight
to remove air bag first unplug batterie then thier are 4 slots on bach side of stearing column I use two flated head screw drivers and push one side and pull out gently once released do the other side the same way ,then thier will be a yellow plug unplug it and air bag is removed
from my experience if the bolts are tight u need a new stearing column witch you can buy used at a resonable price GASTON AUTO GASTON SOUTH CAROLINA i FOUND HAS THE BEST DEALS FOR SATURN
good luck if any other questions please feel free to ask ive worked on many saturns i love them little cars
