Unhappy need your help agian 7thgeners.. steering wheel problem!

welps iam super happy when i got my S2000 steering wheel and so excited to install it, but of course i have to uninstall my OEM. well here's the big problem. i used the T30 screw driver (to take off the airbag ) and tried to unscrew it but the T30 screw driver got messed up (i think the T30 screw driver is a cheapo one) and its stripped. the screw is alil stripped but i'll buy a brand set tomorrow morning.

so i was alittle worried and was wondering how is it really to unscrew these screw. but iam pretty sure its counter clockwise, or am i wrong?

please help 7thgeners!!

Jason

yea post pix after. and for the tightness it really isnt that hard. muscle power is enough. and make sure you disconnect you are bag and battery and wait 30 min. i heard they store some energy but just watch out.

yeah the airbags have capacitors i believe, so those store some charge even after being disconnected from the battery. sometimes disconnecting the power wires from the airbag will set it off, but i have never heard of this happening with our cars.

Its always to play is safe and wait after disconnecting the battery, but I Have a '01 and its easier supposedly for us. I neither waited or needed a puller. Installation was a snap and cruise also hooked up.
