how do you remove steering wheel on a jetta?
Welcome to just answer!!!



What you will need to do is remove the drivers side airbag that is in the middle of the steering wheel first then make sure you remove the connector off the airbag and to the spiral spring . After the airbag has been removed their is a bolt in the middle that holds the steering wheel . To remove this bolt you will need a 12mm 12 point spline drive socket to remove this bolt. When you remove this bolt make sure before removing the steering wheel that you mark the steering wheel to the shaft so when you put it back together it goes in the same exact location heres a picture to help you take out the airbag.I hope this helps
