MG MGF Technical - Steering Wheel Change
|Just purchased a new wheel any ideas how to disarm airbag to allow fitting?|
|Disconnect the battery for a minimum of 10 minutes to allow the SRS ECU to discharge, and then you should be fine to remove the steering wheel.|
There's more information on this procedure on Scarlet's website: http://www.sfforever.co.uk/
|Thanks for the plug Rob :-)|

Click on the REBUILD link
Select the gallery titled: 24th May - Wing, Steering Wheel
Click on the 7th thumbnail, and then click the NEXT PICTURE button until all instructions have been viewed.
|For refit you should know: |
- The Workshop manual say 'you need a new nut and tighten to 50 Nm’.
It is a self sure nut, but I think if is not damage it is not necessary to change it every time. Never saw loosing itself such a big nut, when tighten to 50 Nm.
- Notice the direction of the plug at the air bag module, (wire to the top), it fit a little bit strange.
|i,ve done it and is dead easy,i can photo copy from manual and send if you like, twenty mins job.....................|
