A pyrotechnic SRS component must not be unscrewed, repaired or transferred to another vehicle.
When temporarily storing the driver’s airbag (SRS) it must be positioned with the metal side (reverse side) down in a well protected site. This is to prevent damage to the surface material.
The SRS system remains active for a brief period after power is disconnected. Thus, wait three minutes before starting work.
Turn the steering wheel 180°.
Repeat for the lock spring on the other side.
Turn the steering wheel to neutral position.
Carefully fold back the steering wheel module so that the connectors in the upper edge are accessible.
Press in the catches on the connectors (small illustration) and detach them.
Place the steering wheel module to one side with the front side facing upwards in a suitable location.
Remove the right-hand keypad/keypad dummies by carefully prying them off using a weatherstrip tool.
Turn the weatherstrip tool to press out the keypad. It is firmly attached with three pins in the steering wheel, so force is required to remove them.
Connect the two connectors to the steering wheel module.
Position the steering wheel module in the centre of the steering wheel and press it firmly into bottom of the steering wheel.
Check that it is fitted firmly and can be pressed in all around.
Reinstall the detached components in reverse order.
When the ignition is to be switched on for the first time after the battery has been disconnected, this must be done whilst by standing outside the vehicle, stretching your arm in and avoiding the working area for the airbags.
