MG MGF Technical - Steering Wheel Change

Just purchased a new wheel any ideas how to disarm airbag to allow fitting?
cheers Andy
Andy Goddard

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:

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.
