I have been thinking of the idea for a long time. well I ripped the ribbon that connects to my steering airbag and all functions on it dont work. my mistake when I took off the bottom support when I was putting the new clutch and flywheel. I moved the steering wheel to much and well I have 2 options. Get an aftermarket steering wheel or buy the steering clock assembly. I decided to buy a racing steering wheel for now. What do you think? It even has quick release. RED STITCH STEERING WHEEL HUB ADAPTER/QUICK RELEASE KIT | eBay

I'd rather have the air bag.

Keep in mind that disconnecting one air bag and having the SRS light could cause the entire SRS to not function IE a hell of a lawsuit from a passenger.

for a quick fix, i dont see a problem with it. but you could still shop around..
id wait to see how you like the wheel and hub you ordered. i just dont know if id trust it.
but idk much about aftermarket wheels and hubs.. plus im not an ebay fan, for car parts either.

Yea, I've been looking for a way around that airbag light ever since I put in my Bride seats. If you find one Croc, please let me know...

Here's a summary of how to get the idiot light out w/o just removing the
bulb from the cluster:
1. Remove the steering wheel and unhook the wires to the airbag.
Energize the ignition and the airbag warning light should appear.
2. Use a multimeter to determine the resistance across the driver's
side airbag circuit with the airbag reconnected and the ignition energized.
Record that value. (If you have any resistors lying around of that
resistance bridge those the two airbag wires (airbag removed now) and
energize the ignition. The light should be out.)
3. If you don't have any spare resistors, then leave the driver's side
airbag connected and fish in the dash until you are able to remove the
passenger's side airbag. Same process as before. Unhook the wires,
energize the ignition and test to see if the airbag warning light comes on
(it should). When it does, again measure the resistance across the circuit
with your multimeter. Record the value.
4. Go to Electronics store (Radio Shack or equivalent) and buy
resistors that are the same ohm values as the ones you recorded during your
test. You'll probably need to solder on some sort of connectors so that the
resistors will be able plug into the airbag wiring. Install everything and
test one airbag at a time so that you can determine which one is causing the
light to remain on (if that happens) after you've installed the resistors. - source car mag

awesome that ur going for a new wheel but i would really think about investing in a good quality wheel. those ebay wheels may look nice but after seeing this vid i'd stick to the REAL stuff.
