    Vectra steering wheel removal

    Well i'm not exactly stupid and just wondered how easy this was really.

    Somehow my brothers has ended up upside down ( don't ask :roll: ) and I was thinking of offering to do it for him.

    It's got a air bag and all that.

    Oh and if it's easy enough anyone know what size scoket it is?

    from what I've read on the internet, you are best off disconnecting the battery and leaving it for 5-10 minutes so the airbag has time to discharge. Then it should be held on from behind with a coulpe of screws and I would've thought a connector of some kind. Take that off and sort the wheel out and put it back together. I don't think it's entirely necassery to disconnect the battery, but I guess it's best to be safe then have an airbag explode in your face.

    You DON'T need to disconnect the battery. But DO make sure the key is out the ignition (IE make sure the ignition is off!!!).
    And yes the let the air bag 'Discharge' for 10 mins to be safe.
    Never, EVER, pull a monkeys tail!!!
