I recently purchased a steering wheel from a luxury model CTS (wood on top). Does anyone have any instructions on how to replace the wheel?

I did this on another car with an air bag and the only thing that seemed to be the “most important” was disconnect the battery.

Is this the same with the CTS? Or am I missing the “most important” step in this project? :hmm:

I can fax the instructions from the Service Manual. I'd need your Fax number.

Got it! 2 Pages. Thanks!

Looking at these instructions, does this mean the airbag pops off or is there something that holds it in place?

I did this swap. There are three pins that hold the airbag in place, I used a couple screwdrivers to get at the pins.

I also removed the Airbag fuse from the rear fusebox (I think it's pass side under the rear seat)

I won't lie, was scared the entire time, I didn't want that thing cracking me in the face...

Here is the thread in which I did the swap. Pictures are near the bottom of the page.

Don't be scared, Bob showed me the same picture when I swapped my wood grain wheel in ;)
Yep and you were scared asakas.:D

There's been a recall on the air bags as some deploy themselves on start up. That will really bolster your confidence!!:yup:
