Hey guys,

I need some help in how to install a steering wheel in my 1997 EL Falcon.

My first question is, is there a problem with me having air bags installed in my car??.

Will this be an issue when installing a new steering wheel??

Also, will any wheel fit the connection??

Thanks Guys

Cheers :D

Cranners

If you have an airbag in your car you need to buy a wheel that is able to be fitted with the original air bag see Ferntreegulley wreckers :D :D :D
See the for sale forum!!! :roll: :D

if you have an airbag, it needs to stay! any wheel from an EF/EL/AU will fit, incl the XR/Fairmont/Fairlaine/LTD wheels :wink:

i've written a doco on the change-over - *hopefully* it'll be up soon!

What if i want to install a momo wheel, rather than a ford one??

If a wheel is conpatible with air bags from Auto Barn can that be installed??

MOMO did wheels for the falcons - heaps of them in fact! best bet is to talk to nick or darren @ FTG Auto salvage - one of the site sponsors - they'll be able to help you out finding what you want!

ok
i have done this so i can help for once (didnt even f**k this one up fellas)

ok unclip the battery.... or the airbag fuse
grab a stubbie and wait 5-10mins (this will stop the airbag from breaking your neck if it goes off)

their should be two clips behind the steering wheel, remove them and undo the screws
the airbag should come off now from memory...
lay it down so the bag faces up... be very gentle with it...

unplug the horn n s**t... and undo the weird looking screw thingy which is a t-50 torx screw or something?

any ways once that comes off its pretty easy
just use some elbow greese and bang the top of the wheel, then bottom, then right, then left
takes a bit of work but it'll work out

and then yeh

Im pretty sure thats it, i did this mod in like dec, so im a bit hazy


thats for installation
