    Replacing steering wheel.

    Is this a hard job todo by yourself? Want to swap it with the steering wheel from my other c70. Just with it having airbag etc. Any tips?

    Yeah. Take your time and don't break/disturb the Steering angle sensor.

    Make sure the steering wheel and wheels are dead straight before removing the SAS. You may also need diagnostics to clear any fault codes, should it store a SAS fault.

    Also make sure you've had the battery disconnected for at least 30 minutes before you unplug the airbag.

    As Lee says, battery off.
    Then have the key in the ignition and in position 1.
    Turn the wheel to 3 o'clock and use a long t25 torx bit to remove the airbag bolt from the back of the steering wheel, turn the wheel to 9 o'clock and remove the other bolt.
    Pull the airbag off (it may need a good tug) and carefully Disconnect the airbag.
    Centre the steering wheel and remove the key.
    Engage the steering lock as close to centre as possible and remove the nut that holds the wheel on (19mm I think).
    Pull the wheel off.
    Reverse the process to fit the new one.
