MBpaul :

Hi - just disconnect the battery earth cable and the airbag can be safely disconnected and removed.

MBpaul :

there are 2 torx screws accessed through holes in the rear of the steering wheel - unscrew these & pull the airbag out of the wheel to disconnect the electrical connector and remove the bag

MBpaul :

Remove the centre bolt in the centre of the steering wheel - ensure the wheel is in the straight ahead position first. This bolt should be replaced after every use. Remove the steering wheel.

MBpaul :

Unscrew the 3 screws from the clockspring for the airbag & carefully remove - do not remove the screws completely and do not turn this

MBpaul :

Remove the steering angle sensor and unscrew the bolts for the combination switch to remove and replace

MBpaul :

Refit in reverse order

Best regards, Paul
