I got the same thing going, I didnt get a leather wrapped wheel with my 99 so I'm doing a swap.

I'm looking at my new wheel (and the control arm still attached) and I could really use answers to 2 simple questions
is there a way to remove the key switch from the control arm (basically feasibility of modding up a dash mounted ignition)?
before I pull the airbag cover off the wheel in my car, is there anything I need to know?

thanks

on the back of the steering wheel there are two holes on either side....unscrew the screw in those holes and the airbag comes out

on my 02 it was a torx30 srew in those holes but im not sure if its the same across the other models or not

priceless, thanks. Some little voice inside me was telling me that just yanking at the cover was the wrong way (its hard to fight the influence of the beer).

there isnt a how to but it should go pretty smooth...and once you get going it is self explanitory you just undo the airbag....remove the center bolt that holds the steering wheel on..disconnect the cruise control and horn wires(one harness). remove wheel.

then replace it with the wheel of your choice and do everything in reverse order
