Default Airbag Cover Replacement

I recently removed the emblem from my PT and was going to replace it with one I took off another PT from the junk yard. Mine has had a broken right wing for years and I was sick of it. However, when I went to remove mine and put the new one in I somehow broke both! Now the cover in my PT is all scratched.. Is the a way I can get a new cover and still keep my airbag to save money?

Bump.

So instead of replacing the whole cover, could I just replace the emblem? I found a listing on eBay here that provides the emblem and the clips. It looks exactly like my old emblem. Can I possibly remove the airbag without having to replace it or the clockspring?

Yes. The airbag is on the front side of the steering wheel. The clockspring is right behind the steering wheel. The airbag will just unplug once loose. But you can likely just glue a new emblem on the airbag while still in place.

Not sure how the emblems come off - have you tried using dental-floss? It's what peeps use to get decals off the body for spraying. Might work in this case and you will be unlikely to trigger the airbag with it. Or do you mean get the boss off the wheel? If so I'm almost certain you'll be into the usual raft of problems that come with jigging about with airbags.

Yeah I'll just glue it I guess. Any specific glue recommendations?
