: : i have a momo daytona that i want to put in my ///M,
: : but first i've got to get the airbag disabled and the
: : existing wheel out.

: this is not something i would do on my own and i won't even tell you the way i would go about it if i were going to try on my own! :)

: speculating here....you might have problems if the wheel you are putting in doesn't have an airbag...either the airbag light may come on and disengage all the airbags and/or the seatbelt tensioners, or the check engine light may come on

: again...not something i would try at home

: Bruce


i agree that i'd rather not attempt this myself, but dealers and shops are prohibited from disabling the airbag unless i get permission from big brother. a nifty catch-22.

i did find a company that claims to sell the info necessary to disable the air bag, including how to make the computer happy. we'll see if they actually come through with useful info.
