PostSubject: Steering Wheel Swap   12th August 2009, 12:15

Does anyone know where I can find a guide on how to swap over steering wheels on my R53 - Just purchased a nice new 3 spoke for £70 delivered - now to find an airbag....!

Rakey's Guide

I believe it could be a similar process to this. Although not something I have done myself so don't take my word for it! Embarassed

Speak to Herbert Austin on tM. He has replaced his wheel on a 1st Gen and he mentioned something about punching holes for the airbag! affraid Hes a nice guy, so should be able to help out.

Right! You can see the before (above Razz ) and here is the after. LOTS and lots of cleaning, many sessions of polishing and preping, priming and spraying the inserts. It is now ready to go on, when it is light and a bit warmer so I can actually coordinate my hands!

I was so gutted the other day took the pump spray of my Zymol Leather Cleaner to dab on the cloth instead of spraying ( as had done that bit just wanted to get into the nooks and crannies ) and knocked the BRAND NEW £20 bottle over affraid - now only half left Sad - could have been worse i suppose ...... having none left. Shocked
