Removing and replacing a steering wheel, with or without an airbag, is generally not too difficult for mechanically inclined people who are good with tools. If you don’t fall into that category, you can always have your mechanic install the temporary steering wheel or call your favorite mechanically inclined, tool-friendly family member or friend.   With a little bit of planning and an hour or two of poking around the internet, you should be able to locate a temporary steering wheel with a reasonable price tag and delivery schedule. Now you’re ready to schedule the restoration of your permanent steering wheel with our team.   See, driving without a steering wheel isn’t as hard as you thought it would be!
