Here is what we do in the shop that is a work around for the problem of the airbag going off by itself, disconnect the negative cable of the battery for 1 hour before u start the work, this allows plenty of time to drain the capacitors down in the firing circuit of the air bag control module, it renders it safe to remove, just make sure the battery cable is moved well away from the battery post so there is no chance of it springing back and touching.

My airbag light stays on since i honked the horn last week. what do you think?


Right, you're going to need a new clockspring. The steering wheel has to be removed to replace it. This requires a steering wheel puller. First disconnect the battery terminals and touch the 2 cable ends together to disarm the air bag system. Remove the airbag attaching screws from the back of the steering wheel, remove the airbag, and then remove the steering wheel. After that, it's a snap.

How can I remove the driver's side deployed airbag on my 2005 saturn Ion 3?


The Airbag is held to the steering wheel by screws at the back of the steering wheel, remove them and disconnect the electrical connector to the Airbag. Also whenever an Airbag is deployed the Airbag control module must be replaced, they are a one deployment part and then thrown away.

Air bag light


When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

How do you change the steering wheel on the bf falcon without setting the airbag off?


First disconnect the battery positive lead. Then you will have to remove the lower steering column shroud - philips screwdriver. Then you will see two tork screws behind the steering wheel. Remove these and the airbag will come out. Disconnect the three elect' plugs and the airbag will come free. Wheel centre bolt is also a tork bolt but I used an imperial allen key (5/16 if I remember correctly) to loosen it but didn't take it right out. Then a wheel puller with the centre screw resting against the tok bolt head to loosen the wheel, (two metric bolts screw into the wheel hub) remove the puller, remove the tork bolt and the wheel should come off easy. Good luck.

How to remove the steering wheel from a 318 E46


Disconnect the negative battery terminal using a 10mm wrench and secure it away from the battery. Allow the car to sit for 10 minutes before attempting to continue.Locate the two airbag release holes behind the top of the steering wheel. Insert a thin flat bladed screw driver through the hole and push on the airbag retention spring. When the spring is pushed in, the airbag will release. It can take a little time to find the spring, so be patient. Repeat the same step on the other side of the steering wheel. Lift airbag away from steering wheel and locate connectors on back of airbag. Using a small flat blade screwdriver, Pry the connector clip upwards. Once the tab is up, unplug and repeat on the other connector. Store airbag in a safe place with the front facing upwards.Remove the top plug inside the steering wheel from the slip ring and move aside. Using a 16mm socket, remove the bolt in the center of the steering wheel. You will need to hold the wheel tight with one hand while you break the bolt loose with the other. A second person can hold the wheel also while bolt is broken loose. Once bolt is out, pull the wheel towards you to remove from the column.

How do I remove the Steering Wheel on 2002 Pontiac Grand AM


Relax it will all be aight. Step number 2: Go out and have a coke and a smoke break (as my tech school instructor said to me when I asked this question in tech school haha ! ! ). The Airbag System has a reserve power sytem that will allow the airbags to deploy up to a certain time if for some reason the battery becomes disabled in the event of an accident. U only have to unplug the airbag module from the Clockspring. If it will make you feel more comfortable, leave your battery disconnected for a half hour and then start the disassembly process of your steering wheel. After a half hour you just unplug the airbag connectors from the clockspring. Hope I was able to calm your nerves so you can remove your steering wheel without having the fear of blowing up your airbag.
