Re: 164 steering wheel change?
[QUOTE=PeteH;725285]Are there any issues with changing a steering wheel with an airbag to one without?
My '95 164 has got an airbagged wheel, but its not the most stylish in the world. Just wondering what implications there are if I was to swap it for a non-airbag one (e.g. MoT). I presume that it's not a DIY job (don't like the idea of messing about with something that might explode on me!)
Sorry for digging up an old thread but Pete (or anyone else for that matter) did you have any joy with this?
Same thing for me, I find the airbag wheel really clunky and as it doesn't appear to adjust for reach, it's far to much of a stretch when the seat is back. Thus a nice slender aftermarket wheel would be great with a boss, the only issue being the airbag.
Any pyrotechnic nastiness to watch out for or did it come off ok?
