Airbag Steering wheel Removal


Recommended Posts

Steering wheel is worn out and the perforated leather has been ruined by 19 years of driving. And yes, i could just try and find a good condition factory replacement but if I can go and buy a nice aftermarket one then why not?

 

 

Airbags are good for stopping internal decapitation and face getting wrapped around the steering wheel.

I Also would love to do this, I would love an after market wheel with some dish that pushes the wheel a bit closer to my driving position for when on the track but dont want to muck around with a huge cert as the car is already certed :(

Agreed but also theres is evidence that shows that 1990s vehicles with airbags fitted that the airbag systems won't always work anyway. Which is why under LVVTA regs you are free to remove them as their reliability is significantly less after 10years let alone 20 years. But thanks :)

True, and your brakes might not work either... better rip them out too. Your life buddy :)

Not really the same there. There are maintenance tasks and procedures you can do on brake systems. To the best of my knowledge, there isn’t anything available for airbags...

That's a difference... a similarity is "removing a safety item because it might not work".

 

If he wants to remove the chance that a life saving device will work, good luck to him.

A basic cert starts @ around $550 regardless of Mods, they check the whole car

 

even your rim size is on the plate, even if OEM / standard, then your locked into that size, same as ride height

 

swap rims? = re-cert or if you have another set in your shed you can have them checked & added to the 'Sheet' at time of Cert

 

as is my understanding of the system from another forum I'm on that has a handy cert guy to answer questions

 

sorry I don't know the process of removing & satisfying the cert man with Airbag removal, I would simply suggest ask your local cert guy

      In lieu of a new Technical board structure being implemented soon, here are the workings for the new FAQ posts to replace all technical stickies, and hopefully most of your searches.
      This is a temporary post because it isn't helping anyone locked away while I'm too busy to finish it.
      Please post additional useful links as a new post for a Mod to add to the list.
      Mods, I've tried to categorise things logically and keep double-ups to a minimum. PM me any questions.
      Cheers,
      kamineko

      I recently imported my dream bh5 in the purple/ blue colour, auto ej206 which I'm fine with, it has 49,000 k"s and upon inspection it has had a centre decat and muffler delete and a back box from zero sports. It's a rev C from 2000 and I'm looking to get a base tune or Remap. I contacted possum bourne here in auckland but they are unable to tune the rev C ecu for some reason? Would anyone be able to point me in a direction of a tuner in auckland? Someone also mentioned on here about project lambda,  I was wondering if anyone has had experience with them and if it's worth it. Thanks guys!
