    I need to fit mine tomorrow, looking at the how to it looks like you need to turn the wheel one way to do the clip on the airbag then turn the other way. Will this be possible if the battery is disconnected or will the steering lock not go on? Or would I unclip the airbag then straighten the wheel, disconnect then wait half an hour before undoing the plugs? I need to fit my controls onto the new wheel as well which I m hoping is easy as my new wheel only has one red plug on it.

    I've just bought the airbag release tool. All the videos say disconnect the battery but like you I wonder how to turn the steeling wheel if the steering lock comes on. Is it a matter of the key still releases it with no power?

    Yes. It's just much harder to move

    I tried to release it earlier with the battery connected. I only got as far as the horn went every time I touched the steering wheel after attempting release. After reading Pondy81's input I'll try again tomorrow with the battery disconnected. I had to push the horn hard to make sure the airbag engaged again.

    Once disconnected leave for about 10 mins as well before you start.
