Seems a common Mod for a colt these Days is fitting a Momo steering wheel from an Evo/Cyborg or if your thinking off buying one and are not very mechanicly minded,
I have done a breif How too so you can Get an Idea

Firstly Disconect your battery!! make sure you remember to do this.

Ok Standard Steering wheel, there are two Tourqe (star) screws Either side Holding the Air bag Inplace Undo them all the way out and remove the air bag (its that simple.)

Image
(Kinda looks like a make shift racing steering wheel LOL)

There is a white clip with a black wire connected to your air bag, that simply un clips and the Horn is in a small rubber like sleeve, that simply twists and slides off, now the Air bag is out.

Ok next thing there is a bolt in the middle and its FOOOOKIN tight so make sure you get your rachet, socket and a breaker bar on this to get that leverage behind it, with a breaker bar it comes off pretty easy, undo that completley, whack your steering lock on, wigle the wheel and it comes out and should look like this.

Image

Before removing the wheel tho, remember to perfectly straighten your wheel or you will end up putting the new wheel on upside down or something LOL

Ok now remove the Air bag from the Momo wheel the same way as you did with the standard one.

Ok so slide the new one one like this (the center bolt should it square)
Image

Re tighten that tight bolt using the rachet and breaker bar till fully tight
The White clip connects the exact same as the Standard one on the air bag, and the horn connects to the Red wire and simply twist and push on and your beeping away :)

Place the Airbag in place, tighten the to torque screws tight, give it a wiggle, connect you battery and enjoy!!

Hope this helps :)

yep your right brian, i was going to add that after editing the topic to include the proper torque settings for the bolts etc

airbags going off in your face with removing them are not fun, i had one go off on me when i first got into mechanics after leaving school and it dont half put the sh*** up you

Do you think, CZ(CX)`s wheel with airbag would fit a CJ? Is the connection of airbag same?

Or maybe someone would like to help me to find a cyborg wheel with airbag and ship it to my country (it is impossible to find one in poland)?

Anybody else had problems with the two side star-screws being stupidly tight? Tried my wrist and a drill. More inclined now to stick a bit of WD40 on it or give the screwdriver a quick tap.
