Re: removing and refit steering wheel EF

yeah, can be done, all you need is the right tools.

I havent done it myself, but im pretty sure all you need to do is disconnect the battery, remove the airbag cover and undo the screws to remove the airbag itself, then the wheel should be easy enough to get off. Then just reverse the procedure to put it all back together.

If you're not keen on doing it yourself, a good mechanic, or even Ford, will do it for you.

Re: removing and refit steering wheel EF

just checked my specs and disabling the airbag is done by disconnecting the battery. just dont turn anything on while the airbag is disconnected otherwise it can trigger a fault within the srs ecm
