2001 Boxster S, 3 spoke Steering Wheel. I'm trying to remove the Airbag to fix a Horn problem. To do the OBC mod you might also need to remove the wheel for some methods.So this issue may have a broader appeal? The removal Procedure seems simple - Bentley Sect 69-10 has details I slackened the two T30 x m6, 10,5 ( # 99907318302 ) screws at the back of the Steering Wheel.They were very stiff to start with ,then became easier.I did not use a soldering iron to soften the Loctite on these two T30 screws.Despite many rotations, the screws are still firmly attached to the plate/Retaining Frame with no indication of "letting go". According to Pelican and at least 1 video there is no need to totally remove either of the two screws - just slacken them. The 2 screws seem to be held captive in the Retaining Frame when they have disconnected from the Airbag assy. But both screws just spin endlessly and still seem firmly connected to the plate. I assume they are cross threaded in the large plate behind the Steering Wheel(the one held by 4 bolts). I have tried a wedge between the airbag and the Steering wheel while spinning the screw with a cordless drill. No result. The remaining option to extract the 2 screws is to drill off the screw heads. This is very difficult because both are recessed and obstructed by the wheel and instrument binnacle ! Does anyone have a less brutal method of removing the airbag with 2 cross-threaded screws ?It is too late to try softening the Loctite now ! I checked lots of other Posts on the airbag/Steering Wheel removal subject but did not find any other examples of this problem. Some have stripped the internal flutes of the Torx head but no cross-threading that I found. Thank you for any suggestions. BTW, this was an interesting related link that I seldom see quoted- great photos: file:///C:/Users/hp/AppData/Local/Temp/Temp1_obc_stalk.zip/obc_stalk.pdf
