300SD, 300E, SLK230
I'm trying to remove the steering wheel so I can replace the valved hydraulic cylinder which controls the telescoping of the steering wheel. I've disconnected the battery and both the driver's side and passenger side airbag connector. My problem is that I can't remove the airbag from the steering wheel. I found out that screws holding it in place ate TORX and apparently T27 (even though I read in another forum that they are T30). I just can't get the screws to break free. [!] Has anyone out there been successful in removing the steering wheel airbag? Any hints how to do it? The TORX screwdrive just doesn't allow me the torque needed to get the screws started. What did you use?
