2001 Accord - Steering Wheel Center

The right side of my steering wheel center is popped-out - I disconnected the battery (so I wouldn't have to listen to the horn) and pressed very ******* the center to see if it might "snap" back in - no luck. Can someone tell me how to get it popped back in?

Thanks!

Hi is your srs light on its on the dash as these don,t just pop out for no reason it sounds like you may have bumped your motor and set the air bag off and its not gone off properly as the steering wheel on these cars are fixed with bolts and would take some force to dis lodge them you can unscrew the centre from underneath the steering wheel you don,t have to remove the cowlings to see what has happened but there is only the air bag device there that i can see causing this problem yates210456

HORN STOP WORKING


start with the checking of your cruise control. if the cruise control doesn't work then it is your clock spring. the part costs around $150. you can do it yourself. i changed mine but you need to be careful. disconnect your battery for at least an hour. then start removing the steering wheel cover bolts on the sides. once they are removed you will be able to remove the airbag by lifting carefully and disconnecting the electrical connectors. when you get it off place it on the carpet of the passenger floor face down. then you will need to loosen the center steering wheel bolt to remove the old clock spring. installation is the reverse. this should work no problems and oh by the way make sure that before you remove the steering wheel the wheels are centered. mark the steering wheel before removing the center bolt so that u can put it back in the same position.

Chevrolet Truck Steering Wheel Removal Instruction


1 Turn the steering wheel from side to side until it locks into place. This will make the process a bit easier, as the wheel won't be turning as you work.<br /><br />2 Remove the horn button in the center of the steering wheel by pulling it off towards you. This will expose the steering wheel nut at the center.<br /><br />3 Unbolt the center bolt from the steering wheel, using the 1/2-inch ratchet, extension and socket. This might free the steering wheel right away, but most likely you'll have to proceed to the next step.<br /><br />4 Position the steering wheel puller on the steering wheel such that the center bolt on the puller is on the center shaft of the wheel. Then thread in the bolts supplied with the puller into the two threaded holes on either side of the center shaft on the wheel.<br /><br />5 Tighten down the center bolt on the steering wheel puller using the 1/2-inch ratchet and socket until the steering wheel pops free. Then remove the steering wheel puller from the steering wheel.

2008 pontiac g6 steering wheel removal procedure


1
Turn on your car. Turn the steering wheel so the front tires are pointing directly forward. Turn off your car.
2
  • Pop the hood on your car and disconnect the black and red battery cables from the battery with pliers. By disconnecting the battery you will prevent the airbag and horn from malfunctioning or blowing.

  • 4 Remove the retaining clip on the center of your steering wheel with pliers. Place the correct size socket on the retaining nut, and loosen the nut, unscrewing it one turn.
  • 5 Lie back in the seat and prop your knees under the bottom/sides of the steering wheel. Apply pressure on the back side of the steering wheel with your knees by pushing on your toes.
  • 6 Place the rubber mallet over the retaining nut with your left hand. Apply pressure with your knees. With your right hand, bang on top of the rubber mallet until the steering wheel pops loose.
  • 7
  • Unscrew the retaining nut completely and remove the steering wheel.

    How do i change the ignition cylinder if I have no key


    Align the steering wheel so the tires are straight and then remove the ignition key from the Saturn.

  • 2 Remove the lower right side console trim panel to reveal the fuse box panel. The trim panel simply pulls off with a sharp tug. Locate the supplemental inflatable restraint (SIR, or air bag) fuse and then remove it with the fuse puller. Refer to the repair manual for the fuse schematics, if necessary.
  • 3 Open the hood and then disconnect the negative battery terminal from the battery, using a ratchet and socket. Isolate the cable so the terminal does not come into contact with the battery post during the repair.
  • 4 Loosen the four SIR retaining fasteners located behind the air bag module at the rear of the steering wheel using a ratchet and socket.
  • 5 Remove the inflator module away from the steering wheel carefully. Disconnect the connector position assurance (CPA) device from the module. Disconnect the yellow SIR connector at the base of the steering column. Unplug the wire harness from the module and then place the module in a safe place away from your work space with the trim panel facing up.
  • 6 Pry off the upper instrument panel retaining caps with a slotted screwdriver and then remove the trim panel retaining screws. Lift the trim panel upward to disengage the rear retaining clips. Disengage the front trim panel clips by lifting upward at each front corner. Remove the trim panel from the vehicle.
  • 7 Disconnect the CPA device from the passenger-side air bag module and then disconnect the yellow SIR wire from the wire harness pigtail located under the passenger-side dashboard.
  • 8 Disconnect the wire harnesses for the horn and cruise control (if equipped) from the base of the steering wheel. Remove the retaining clip at the center of the steering wheel (if equipped) and then remove the mounting nut beneath it. Pay attention to the alignment of the steering wheel locating notch for reassembly.
  • 9 Apply the steering wheel puller to the steering wheel and tighten the center nut of the puller to draw the steering wheel off the column slowly. Tape the SIR coil into position to prevent accidental coil damage from occurring.
  • 10 Remove the two retaining screws and then the upper steering column cover. Pry off the ignition lock bezel and then remove the two lower retaining screws and the lower steering column cover.
  • 11 Remove the SIR coil from the combination module. Disconnect the CPA device and the wires from the combination switch. Remove the combination switch retaining bolts and then remove the switch from the steering column assembly. If necessary, remove the instrument panel trim covers and center console trim to access the switch fasteners for removal.
  • 12 Disconnect the ignition switch connector and then remove the two ignition switch retaining screws. Disconnect the switch from the ignition module and then remove it from the steering column.
  • 13 Reverse the procedure to reinstall the new replacement ignition switch.

    How do i remove the steering wheel?


    Should be able to disconnect the battery negative. Unbolt the air bag carefully, do not drop. Unbolt the center bolt in the steering wheel, get yourself a steering wheel puller, and pull it off.

    Replace airbag on `92 honda accord


    When an SRS cable reel assembly is removed and set aside during vehicle repairs, the cable reel may rotate inside the assembly so it is no longer centered. If the assembly is reinstalled with the reel off-center, the cable can break when the steering wheel is turned to full lock. The cable reel holding fixture locks the reel while the assembly is off the vehicle, keeping it centered for reinstallation.
    CABLE REEL REMOVAL PROCEDURE
    1. Follow the procedure in the appropriate service manual for disconnecting the battery, and removing the dashboard panels, steering column covers, airbag, and steering wheel.
    ^ Always install short connectors on the connectors for the driver's and passenger's (if so equipped) airbags.
    ^ Make sure the front wheels are pointed straight ahead before removing the steering wheel.
    2. Verify that the cable reel is centered; the yellow gear tooth is lined up with the alignment mark on the cover. Install the cable reel holding fixture in the cable reel assembly as shown. Use a TORX T-10 wrench.
    3. Disconnect the 6-P connector, then remove the cable reel assembly.
    CABLE REEL INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
    1. Verify that the front wheels are still pointed straight ahead.
    2. Reinstall the cable reel assembly, and reconnect the 6-P connector.
    3. Remove the cable reel holding fixture.
    4. Follow the service manual procedure for reinstallation of the steering wheel, airbag, steering column covers, and dashboard covers.
    5. Verify SRS operation as described in the service manual. Road test the vehicle.
    ^ If the steering wheel spoke angle is not correct, change it by adjusting the tie rod ends. Do not remove and reposition the steering wheel.
