Wanting to remove the stock steering wheel/airbag. Curious if anyone has any input on the best way to remove?

Lol, man you know you got to be specific round these parts, lol.


Your going to need a steering wheel puller for sure. Also make sure the air fuse is taken out. Go mess around there and that thing deploys, your going to have a bad day.

Lol my bad. I know how to take off the wheel. The airbag going off was my worry mainly. IIRC aren't you supposed to wait a certain amount of time after you remove the fuse, I think there is some kind of battery built into the SRS system?

yes I believe GM service manual says to wait ten minutes there are capacitors in the air bag module that once discharged the system is safe to work on

For safety overkill:

Disconnect negative battery post. Pull all the airbag/SRS related fuses. Eat breakfast/lunch. Get to work.

Store the airbag face up and away from where you're working. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6YLIwzbbyM
