    Exclamation Driver steering wheel airbag replacement. HELP

    so I've been reading up on how to replace the airbag, seems pretty simple. unhook the tabs from the back with a flat tip and pull while doing so. unplug all the cables (nobody has clarified how exactly and from where) help?

    now my big question is - is the airbag the same throughout the years 05-07 and is the airbag the same for the CTS and the CTS-V.

    because in Germany they're asking $2000 for just the airbag for the V. However I can get a whole base cts steering wheel with the airbag for $400. but I need to know if I can use that aribag or not.

    hope someone with part number access can shed some light. I have to pull the trigger on this quickly.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd put a v2 steering wheel w airbag in if I could lol

    its an 07. thanks for the offer. i dont think you can ship a steering wheel with the airbag to an apo ae Address or even international - because of the explosives inside.

    but maybe someone else can chime in...

    You can ship it....the PO clerk won't think twice about it....

    BL: You'll find out at the Post Office in the states on the outbound if you "can" ship it or not....

    I have the bag and looked into getting it to you. USPS considered it haz mat and will not ship it to you.
    UPS and FedEx require a certification to pack and ship it as well.

    Re: Driver steering wheel airbag replacement. HELP

    so i appreciate all the offers to send me the airbag - and i might come back to it. however my original question concerned some removal questions and some compatability questions regarding the regular cts.

    can anybody shed some light in that direction?

    Re: Driver steering wheel airbag replacement. HELP

    FWIW, I purchased the air bag seat sensor for my Sky on the web, and the seller marked the customs form with "airbag parts" and customs returned it to him. It wasn't even an actual airbag, just the electronic seat sensor. If you're trying to ship an airbag overseas, be extra careful it doesn't get confiscated/rejected at the border...

    Still living in Mainz, but the time for a contract change is coming so I might be moving soon...doing my best to stay in Germany, though.

    We should meet up sometime, though I might not have the V much longer...
