Removing the steering wheel

To make the story short, I would like to swap the steering wheel between my old and new Jimny, as my old one has a leather steering wheel and I like that.

Both steering wheels are the same design (2006-2014), and have air bags.

Has anyone removed this type of steering wheel and can it be done without major considerations? I am mostly concerned about the air bag.

- Disconnect Battery, make sure steering is locked

- Undo two bolts under wheel

- Carefully remove airbag, making sure clock-spring does not spin too far (otherwise it will break)

- Remove nut, place back on so when you're removing the wheel it does not slap you in the face :woohoo:

- Try and remember how your wheel was placed on the wheel originally (mine's still wonky)

I just did thisa week ago.

more or less like the description above:

disconnect battery
two torx screws on either sides of the steering wheel to loosen airbag
small yellow clip in the center of the center connection on the airbag to be lifted carefully, then unplug the wires.
mark center of the steering wheel with a pen or make a mark with something sharp.
loosen the nut, and wiggle the steering wheel until it stop against the nut.
reverse to get it back.

The leather wheel feels so much better!

2004 Jimny has more or less the same design as yours and a leather steering wheel I think. (Norwegian models)
