Before you do this though are you sure that the buttons are stuffed. I just had a problem recently where my buttons weren't working in my AU2 XR8. I thought it was a little strange and then my airbag light would start to flash. It actually turned out to be the mechanism that allows the steering wheel to rotate while allowing the airbag and cruise buttons to maintain contact with the controls. Just check it out first mate. Good luck. It is pretty easy to pull the airbag out.
Thanks for the reply v8snerlo....
Yeah, the buttons are stufed, they are currently sitting on the drivers side floor (completely broken off)
Will have a go at it this arvo...
