Can anybody share an instruction for changing a steering wheel? My leather wheel is cracking in 3 places and is out of warranty. I have ordered a new Bullitt wheel.

I did a similar change on a 2000 GT a few years ago and it went well, but I don't remember all the details. I seem to remember it was fairly simple. Yes, I know about disconnecting the battery and letting it bleed off so I don't pop the airbag. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

are the new ones not pressed on anymore. Do they require a puller?

i would be willing to bet they are held on with a nut (maybe 17or18mm) and pressed on there, so i would rent a puller from your local auto parts store just in case you need it

Steering Wheel

Thanks. I have the '06 factory service manual. I saw this page, the thing it doesn't tell me is how to get the center, or I guess the airbag module out. I seem to remember from my '00, you take 2 or 3 screws out from the back of the spokes.

Steering wheel

Thanks, that's what I needed. If I disconnect the battery for an hour , do I still need to pull the airbag fuse? I can't imagine I'd have to.
