1. Removing Mk2Ph2 Steering wheel
Guide for removing a Mk2 Ph2 Steering wheel, Pics of a 172 ph2
all you need is a flathead screwdriver and a T50 torx bit and ratchet.
Important: Unplug the car battery and leave the car for at least 20 mins (I
left mine for 25)
I do know people who didn't do this and go away with it, but it can cause
the ECU to think the airbag has fired. Im not sure if it's possible for the
airbag to deploy while doing this but as a precautionary measure, don't sit
in the drivers seat while unpluging/pluging the connectors. An airbag can
easily break your nose.
Don't PM me saying your airbag has gone off and your nose is broken. If
your worried/not confident, take it to renault.
The airbag unit needs to be removed. It is held to the steering wheel on 2 metal
clips. AFTER unplugging the battery and leaving for 20mins+, turn the steering
wheel 90 degrees. You should now be able to feel/see one of the clips on the back
of the steering wheel at the bottom. You should be able to see that you need to
push the clip toward the perimeter of the wheel to slide it off the hook. This can be
done with a flat head screw driver one clip at a time (turning the wheel 180 degrees
in between for access).
For the second clip it is almost essential to push the horn hard down to unclip it.
Here is the location of the clips and what they look like:
On the wheel:
On the airbag:
Remove the 2 ribbon wires.
Easy when you know how. Start by taking a small flathead screwdriver and ease out
the hindged locking flap:
Then the connector can be removed in this direction (upwards/downwards)
Repeat for the other connector, noticing that the two are distinguished by their
colours matching the plug on the airbag.
Unbolt the steering wheel and remove.
Use a T50 in the central bolt (see pic 1). Important: Unscrew untill you can turn by
hand but still have a few threads left on the bolt. Then wiggle the wheel and pull it
until it comes off the steering column. Then remove the bolt. Unclip the horn wires
etc and remove the steering wheel. Otherwise you will probably destroy the horn
refit is reverse of removal
