2009 Astra XE
Default Removing steering wheel/horn

Hey! Does anyone know how to get the horn/airbag unit (centre of steering wheel) out? I am trying to get to the wiring behind it to install steering wheel radio controls. Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2009 Astra XE
Default Re: Removing steering wheel/horn

Figured I would update this post in case anyone else was wondering about it.
Because of some great advice/direction from my local astra expert (thanks L) I have sorted it out.

To remove the horn/airbag you need to:
1.Disconnect the battery for at least 20 minutes.
2.Tun the wheel around 90 degrees in one direction until a little hole can be seen on the side.
3.Insert something flat like a robinson or torx screwdriver to depress the cap inside.
4. Pull lightly on the depressed side to release it.
5.Repeat the rotation/depression with the hole on the other side of the horn.
6.Completely pull out the horn/airbag assembly.

NOTE: There is no screw in the hole, just a button to depress. Also, make sure that the battery has been disconnected for several minutes. You can also remove the fuse for the horn as well for good measure, but shouldn't need to since the battery is not connected

Hope this helps. And if I missed anything please don't hesitate to reply. :-)

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
