Only hand needed to hold when tightening.
Current type is usually keyed to only fit one way, even when splines allow multiple positions it's easy to see "straight" when the front wheels are near straight (notch off either way is obviously off).

Do you need a special tool to hold the steering when torquing?
Never done a steering swap in my life!
What about the steering alignment?

I'm trying to swap my wheel and getting the airbag out is proving impossible to me. I've tried every size screwdriver I have including the 3/16 recommended upthread. I've filed one down, bent another at a 90 degree angle and tried using brute force when turning the screwdriver. I get the screwdriver to turn, but the airbag doesn't free up.
Anyone have any suggestions? I'd just give up and bring it to the shop, but it bugs me that I've spent this much time and failed.

|zolemite||I did this and it was fairly easy. I installed a leather wrapped one with controls to my S model. I did have to cut the wiring in order to get my airbag to fit properly|

Torx screw on shroud top?
Quick Question: Where, exactly is the torx screw on top of the steering column shroud? I've been scouting around in my 2012 SEL, but can't find any sign of one.
Thanks for the write-ups, I will try to document my steering wheel swap with photos.

|dktang7||I hate to bump an older thread, but I recently did the steering wheel swap and now find myself in a predicament. Popping the airbag from the se steering was easy, or perhaps I was just lucky. Eager to finish the job, I bolted on the st steering wheel without straightening the wheel. As a result, my new st leather steering is now crooked lol. I figured it was a biggie since I removed the wheel before. Unfortunately, that has not been the case, as I have not been able to successfully remove the airbag unit despite my several attempts. I even considered taking it to the dealer, but am afraid they would document something that would void the warranty. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?|
