Start by, turning off your car (go to Controls > Safety > Power Off) and then get inside the car. Then, insert the pin puncher or small flat screwdriver on the left and right holes (behind the steering wheel) and pull the airbag module.

After that, disconnect all the plugs (yellow and maroon/purple connectors) and unscrew one bolt in the core or center of the steering wheel.

Next, detach the old steering wheel from the column and insert the new steering wheel. Finish the process by doing the reverse of the old steering wheel removal. Then, be sure to adjust the steering wheel so that it feels comfortable to use.

After you’ve replaced the part, if the steering wheel vibrates or shakes, then remove the part from the column and attach it properly.
