Default Driver Airbag 07

Not having any luck with the search engine....

2007 - How does the driver's steering wheel airbag come out in an 07?

There are 3 metal U-shaped clips on the back of the replacement bag that look like they go into some white plastic sockets on the steering wheel. Do I have to bend the clips back or just pull the old blown SRS module straight out and disconnect the yellow and black wire clips?

First off, make darned certain that you remove the NEGATIVE BATTERY CONNECTION before getting started. NEGATIVE NOT POSITIVE. You're working on a car with a CAN buss system and if you have a knee bolster and leave the negative connected, while removing the driver's airbag you can discharge the knee bolster and then, well, they'll be cleaning you up off the rear windows.

Please - read this thoroughly! I take NO responsibility for anything stupid you might do. Don't take shortcuts, don't fool around while doing this work. Add to it, you can discharge the new airbag while installing it if you're not following the instructions!

An added note that is NOT in the books - the warnings suggest two minutes of wait time after disconnecting the battery. I say 5 minutes is a better idea and while you're at it, hit the brakes a few times to help discharge any residual power on the car.

Lastly, the instructions state that the clockspring must be replaced. I don't know about that, I can give you the instructions for replacing that too, but not sure why it must be replaced. Maybe someone here can chime in or you can go over to and ask the gang over there.

So, that being said, here's the instructions on removal and install....
