2004 VUE 2.2L
Default How do I disassemble my steering wheel? My horn is stuck BEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

Hi-
From reading a lot of the posts about horn probs such as this, I've yet to read on that had instructions on how to dismantle the steering wheel to check the contacts which I hear stick frequently.
Funny too...or not...I called Saturn and told them of my problem and that I've heard of literally hundreds of others who've had the same issue. She couldn't find any other Vue's that complained or were repaired for this problem. She did offer, however, for me to bring the vehicle in at my cost---tis all about $$$.

Thanks in advance! Steven

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The battery should be disconnected for 30 minutes before removing the airbag.

The air bag is easily removed by inserting a 1/4 inch flat tip screwdriver into the three triangular slots on the back of the column and rotating it 90 degrees to release the spring clips.

Disable the SIR system. Remove the fuse from the BCM .

Rotate the steering wheel until one of the triangular openings is accessable with a small flat-bladed tool.
Insert the small flat-bladed tool into the triangular opening to release the steering wheel inflatable restraint module from the steering wheel.
Rotate the steering wheel 180 degrees and insert the small flat-bladed tool into the triangular opening to release the steering wheel inflatable restraint module from the steering wheel.



Disconnect the horn switch and the inflatable restraint electrical connectors.
Remove the inflatable restraint steering wheel module.

If you need more info I'll be standing by.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Hey many thanks---I'll not be able to get to it till mid week but it sounds fairly simple. If you don't mind I'll keep you informed?
Take care, Steven
