Steering wheel radio controls stuck?
 
Has anyone had any of their steering wheel mounted radio controls get stuck? My volume is jammed so when I turn up the volume it turns it back down, Can I pop it off or are they held on by something? Im afraid to break it.

you will have to remove the airbag to fix them. The controls can be purchased seperately.

Wow, maybe I should find an SRT wheel then. To discharge the power do you just unhook the battery? I was afraid of taking an airbag to the face.

yep...I disconnected the negative from the battery, pumped the brakes, got all my stuff together and switched them in 5 minutes. It took longer to screw in the steering wheel puller than it took to do anything else....LOL.

I actually just replaced the left steering wheel radio controls last week. I bought from ____ (see below). The middle button got stuck and it was activating the bluetooth and changing the stations. VERY ANNOYING! Shipping was kinda expensive but they sent it overnight. If its the same problem that I had, you can use a blade (i.e. utility knife or flat head screw driver ) to pop the assembly out. It held by two clips along the straight side. PM me if you need help.

PS: I didn't do anything with the airbag, in any case it worked.

Hopefully this works.

Hey Scott,
long time no talk to, hope that all is well! :)
