Hey folks, I started trying to fit my momo boss today.

Got the old wheel off but now have a problem with the wiring.

Here is where I am at.

The instructions look pretty simple but the wire for my airbag is different.

What do I need to do?

Thanks.

explain what wheel you are trying to put on. When I installed my Sparco wheel it was very easy. No airbag though

Its an omp wheel that I had in my garage at the moment but will probably get a new momo wheel if i like it with the smaller wheel.

The new wheel wont have an airbag and the momo boss kit comes with wires and a resistor for the airbag light and horn.

The last pic is with the boss over the spline but I can not connect the wires as the wires are stuck on my airbag.

You will most likely have to cut the plug off of the air bag and splice them into the new wires.


Problem you might end up having is that the new hub covers the plug area on the black ring where the air bag plug went into. This was an issue with mine. You can mark the area and have someone cut it out or as I did not use it at all, but if you dont use it you will lose your horn and your blinkers will not automaticly shut off when you turn the steering wheel back to center.

Sounds like you still have the OEM black ring still in place. I had to remove mine to put the hub on since the plug stuck out and wouldn't allow the hub to go on without removing it. This is why my blinkers dont turn off on their own.

My momo hub has a little hole for the wires to come through at the black plug on the car.

I think I may need the plug and wiring off a later airbag. This can plug into the back of the later style airbags and be removed. Other wise the snips will have to come out on my airbag. But this will be the last resort as I want to be able to refit the airbag if need be.
