Re: Steering wheel installation???
LOWAU, the bolts holding the Airbag assembly to the wheel are a special Torx type which cannot be purchased unless you are a manufacturer or dealer.
Normal Torx has 6 splines whereas this type has 5.
AU2 and AU3 are like this so I expect that the AU1 is the same (EF/EL use a standard 10mm bolt).
As the guys suggested, if your are going to do it yourself, YOU MUST disconnect power.
I add my recommendation to those above and suggest you go to Ford to get it fitted.
The XR family ---->
Muzza: a XR8 AU seriesIII...bog standard :)
