Steering Wheel Airbag Removal

Recommended Posts

Hi There, and Greetings from New Zealand,

Recently acquired a Stolen and Recovered 997 4S. Couldn't pass up the opportunity at about 60% of new purchase price (2006 model), and no damage. Basically, the dealer gave the insurance company an over excessive quote so the original owner could get a write off and a new car. Stolen from the car was: Wheels & Tires, Nav DVD drive, chronus clock from dash, and badges - including the one on the steering wheel. All the parts are on their way from Germany, but I have this question:

How can I get the Airbag part (PN 997 803 089 05 (3 Spoke triangular)) off the actual steering wheel? Looking at the 996 forums - it looks easy, but the 997s attachment method seems quite different (no TORX screws).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Must say, this is the best Porsche place on the web - glad to contribute.

Its been a while since I've done it but I believe you have to stick a screwdriver in and unhinge and a clip that holds the airbag onto the wheel. If you point the wheel straight up and down I think the hole is at 6 o clock. Push upwards with the screwdriver and the airbag should pop off.

I think thats how you do it but I've only done it once or twice.
