  • How To Change Your Steering Wheel SE03EP16 Episode LIVE

    We have been asked to make this video literally hundreds of times so we've finally done it. It's a very simple, and cheap mod.




    Make sure you check with your local authority/insurance to see if this is allowed in your state or territory.

    If you have an airbag wheel, it requires a different, and more detailed process.

    Changing the steering wheel on Airbag cars is messing with the safety systems of your car, and you do so at your own risk. On a street car with factory airbag we wouldn't recommend changing it.

    When removing an airbag equipped wheel the airbag system needs to be discharged, which involves disconnecting the battery to ensure there is no risk of the wheel bag being triggered.

    Another option is to crossgraade your steering wheel to one from the same make and model of car that has a higher trim spec, if the Airbag system is the same then they will be compatible. Both of these methods should be performed by a professional




    Feel free to post up questions and comments/tips here to create a resource for others searching in the future.

          Holding up really well actually. We hammered it around a track for hours and it was perfect! Can't complain for the money!

            Aftermarket steering wheels are pretty sturdy at good prices. The drifters I know don't spend hundreds of dollars on them, maybe $50 and they'll last a season atleast with constant hammering around the track.

            Another good video guys, keep it up.

                      It will be the same except with a defect notice at the end lol

                      Also good episode, I hope the damage isn't too bad from the break in so many more mods can be documented on that wonderful car.

                          For $20 that was a suprisingly comfortable wheel.
                          Great video, keep up the good work.
                          And rake loves it.
