Default Air Bag & Steering Wheel Swap. 4cyl Plastic to V6 Leather w/ Pics...

Has anyone done the swap before?

I have the 4cyl style wheel and I don't hate it but the V6 is much much nicer.

I have the V6 bag and leather wheel. I just don't want to start taking the 4cyl bag off if it's not possible to swap.

Here is what I have: (this isn't my VUE, mine has a MT, but the image represents the column and bag.)



Here is what I want:


Has anyone tried this? Or has anyone removed the 4cyl bag? I can't get the darned thing off. I'd hate to have to swap the column. I can, I'd just rather not.

Let me know of anyone has any experience.

Wow, nothing? Anyone? 35 Views and no responses?

I guess I will have to venture and do it myself this weekend.

2004 VUE Red Line
Default Re: Air Bag & Steering Wheel Swap. 4cyl Plastic to V6 Leather w/ Pics...

I am wondering if the older steering wheel airbag is as much of a pain in the arse as the newer one is. I have pulled the stock steering wheel I don't know how many times and it still gives me problems every once in a while. I replaced mine with an aftermarket wheel. I had to fabricate a hub adapter which is why i had to keep pulling the stock wheel off when I was mocking up the new part when it was being created.

Sorry I didn't see your post earlier or I would have chimed in.
