    Removing 306 steering wheel

    I've always wanted to get a nice carbon fibre style steering wheel (one of the momo ones ) for my 306, finally i got the cash to do it but the prob is getting rid of my pug one.

    firstly has anyone done it before question ?

    The main issue is what the hell do you do in regards to the airbag ? how do you remove it or can you?

    can you do it yourself?

    It wont be legal, insurance might be a problem and do you really want to lose the airbag?

    I'm all for mods but that's one thing i'd think hard about.

    Luckily my 306 doesn't have an airbag Just remove the center pug cap and there's a big bolt there. Nice and easy

    If I had an airbag I wouldn't change the wheel. Safety is much more important than feel/looks of a wheel.

    Spend the money on something more useful for the car - something that makes it drive better.

    Well you have few options here.

    Buy a MOMO wheel and loose the AirBag (make sure you tell the insurance company as otherwise you may be un-covered in case of accident not to mention your health).

    check out this amrican company that re-does your original wheel in deisgner styles. <a href="http://www.american-stitches.com/amstitches/Pages/main.html" target="_blank">HERE</a>

    or

    Investigate the GTi6 Steering wheel from Peugeot which is leather wheel that feels rather nice to hold.

    cheers

    Thats not a bad idea wink .You see its my first car and every week i get paid i just have this inclination to buy something for my car, im a compulsive car spender and the worst part is i buy useless sh*t (eg.shift light which doesnt even work. But im slowing down espicially with a possible speeding fine, overdue parking fine and rego due in july. But Yeah i think that DIY steering wheel kit is quite cool.

    I used todo the same thing, new stereo, new amp, lets try this carwash soap, new air filter, exhaust, springs, lights etc. Until things start to wear from too much enthusiastic driving hehe. New CV boot here, new CV there, shocks and bushes etc

    Start saving now! It's all worth it though, I'm learning how to work on cars and how to drive LOL

    OK, ok, if you really must remove the airbag, ive done it twice in a 306 and countless other cars (when doing hi-end stereos).
    *1. first disconect +12V terminal of the battery, first and fore most.
    *2. Go back and make sure, of step 1.!!
    *3. Done step 1.?i f yes continue.
    *4. Wait 10-15 min, so go and watch an episde of the simpsons or something.
    *5. You will need TORX style scredrivers, from behind the wheel undo the screws holding the front cover on.
    *6. carefully see whats behind. look for wires and warning light if applicable.
    *7. remove cover completely.
    *8. the projectile/bag is the squarish parcel in the middle, you have to slowly and caefully pull it out and take careto note the connecting wire/s, different models vary a little. take care to remeber how things went in.
    *9. the trigger wire needs to be taped up or Heat-shrink over.
    *10. proceed to remove nut, mark top-dead-center.
    *11. mount your new wheel as per instructions.
    *12. remove the Airbag fuse from the fuse box too.
    *13, replace battery terminal and happy twirling.
    cheers !!!!!!!!!IF IN DOUBT, SEE A PRO!!!!!
    ... ptui!
