Default Steering wheel airbag

Hi all

406 2.2 sport 2003

I'm about to replace my comm2000 and has some trouble with removing the airbag on the steering wheel. Can't find any wholes with screws in when I look at the back of the wheel. But no matter how I try I can't seem to get the airbag off.

Any ideas?

there is one hole at the bottom back of the steering wheel you need to push something up to push on the metal bar as that releases the airbag

I believe this has a release pin inside the steering wheel.

Turn the steering wheel 90 degrees (either way) and at bottom of the steering wheel (which will now be at the side) there should be a slot.

Use a flathead screwdriver and push the metal clip, I believe towards the centre of the steering wheel. This should release the airbag which should pop out.

Bit fiddly but with a bit of patience, you should get it.

Just another point, if you haven't already disconnected it, don't disconnect the airbag when you're in the 'impact zone' (sitting in the drivers seat). I usually stand outside the car and keep all vital body parts out of the way just in case the airbag deploys.

Also worth doing this when reconnecting it.

I have replaced my comm2000 but now my key doesn't work and I got an immobilizer lock.

Suggestions?

I've got it running and drove it for a couple of miles before I turned it off again. Now I got the same error saying engine immobilizer lock.

Have you connected the grey connector back in securely..?

Give it a wiggle to see if it helps.

Its also possible the transponder ring was disturbed in the process, may as well check that too - its the black ring around the ignition barrel with a flimsy connection on it...
