    Changing Steering wheel control led's

    I have the controls here in front of me, but what i cant work out, is how do the buttons come off?

    Dont want to snap really as knowing my luck they will never work again.

    Is there a way of unclipping them

    remove the 2 torx bolts on the rear of the steering wheel - these hold the airbag in place. Now if u choose to remove the airbag then make sure the key is OUT of the ignition and has been out for a good hour or so. DO NOT INSERT key until its all reconnected back up again (failure to do this means the airbag light will come on - and need to be removed by tech2 rendering the system inoperative until then)

    you will see once the airbag pad is removed away from the wheel that the radio controls are just held in place. - unclip the connectors and free the controls. Personally I didnt have these so cant confirm if they are secured in place - either way though - removing the airbag pad will confirm the situation.

    Easy enough tho.

    Follow the HOW TOs for changing the steering wheel - obviously only up to a certain point!
