At last I had some time for another upgrade. Steering wheel swap... My stock one was 4-spoke with airbag/horn in the middle.
IPB Image

Just history now biggrin.gif. Since today I have this one wink.gif genuine 7th gen. Celica/91-04 MR2 st. wheel.
IPB Image

Although horn mechanism and airbag connector were different everything is working now. And I'll try describe here how generally do that... believe it will be handy for anyone wink.gif

step no one: remove old steering wheel
Two screws on sides (behind small covers) holds airbag part
IPB Image

IPB Image

There are just two plugs inside. That yellow one is for airbag and white is horn (there is possibility also for cruise multi switch, where are many more wires. Horn wire is black, every time that last on right connected to wheel body)
IPB Image

When you unplug everything + unscrew nut in the middle you should remove wheel with puller (w/o that it's not possible at all)
IPB Image

step two: solving airbag connection
IPB Image

Different airbag connector means find right module (spiral) for it...
IPB Image

...or use same airbag refill wink.gif
IPB Image

IPB Image

Of course... some customization should be done if airbag refill has different size (more are different, more custom work is needed). My one was just bit different... and airbag part was easy take into parts.
IPB Image

step three: solving horn connection
This step depends on type of horn you have. However every time it's about find how horn mechanism works, cut black wire off old wheel and connect it somewhere... It really depends on that horn mechanism. However it's really easy, just one wire to screw... somewhere wink.gif.

step four: piece everything together
Installation of new wheel body (with same center bore of course) is easy...
IPB Image

...and in my case screw horn cable to airbag body (not wheel body like stock one)...and all finished biggrin.gif.
