I removed mine about a year ago without a puller but it took about 10-15 minutes.

I needed a puller to remove my 4 spoke wheel, definitely NO way I would've gotten it w/out a puller, but to remove the 3 spoke wheel I don't expect I'd need a puller whatsoever. My guess, Yarik, since yours has been removed once already, is that you may not need one.

If you do need one, you can get it from Autozone; they "rent" them - you buy it for $20, use it, and return it for a refund (their policy!)

exactly. depends on wheel... old ST st.wheel was impossible to remove w/o puller but at GT-four it was easy. So unless you give a try you never know smile.gif

you don't need to splice any wires just buy this adapter

have to order from here not your dealer ..

Just thought I'd update this with my own findings, I was able to order this part off of http://www.handsontools.com/; prior to ordering I emailed to confirm part is in stock - part is in stock and will ship within 48 hrs. Part costs $16 on this site, but shipping is a bit high at $10 for UPS ground.

Edit: sub-"herness"? lol

I just looked over my notes, it's not super clear.

From the 6gen connector from the clockspring there's 3 wires
red
white
white w/black stripe
right ? (and the black horn)

7 gen to 6 gen
red to red
black (cut) to white
white to white w/black

that all I got, I took them both apart and saw the diff, check itr out smile.gif
good luck



Can anyone confirm this? I spliced in my 7th gen cruise stalk this weekend but it's not working.

On the 7th gen stalk, the black is crimped in with the white w/black wire, so I basically did the same with the clockspring side of the harness, cut in the W and W/B to the same on the stalk. I'm thinking this is where I went wrong - do I need to separate the B and the W/B on the stalk and splice them in separately to the clockspring side?

Also, would this possibly cause an airbag ecu code? I spliced in my airbag again, blue to black, yellow to red, reset the airbag ecu but the light is still on. I ran diagnostics on it, it's Code 12. Anyone else get this problem?

I have to run through DEQ in a month, and am pretty sure I won't pass if my SRS Warning light is on. Help! tongue.gif

how did you clear the airbag code? At the DLC?

Since this thread is pretty much the most thorough how-to-swap-your-steering wheel, I'd love to see it completed with information on how to splice in the 7th gen cruise stalk for those of us not lucky enough to get a 98-99 or whatever it was that's plug-n-play.

As a side note, in the interest of consolidating info, here is how to clear the airbag code, as per the BGB for a '95 USDM Celica
QUOTE
CLEARING CODES
1) At DLC, connect a jumper wire to terminal Tc. See Figs. 11
and 12. Connect another jumper wire to terminal AB. Turn ignition
switch to ACC or ON position. Wait about 6 seconds.
2) Starting with terminal Tc, apply body ground alternately
to terminal Tc and terminal AB twice each, in cycles of 1/2 to 1 1/2
seconds (sequence is: Tc, AB, Tc, AB). Finally, keep applying body
ground to terminal Tc until air bag warning light flashes quickly,
indicating codes are cleared.
NOTE: When alternately connecting jumper probes to terminals,
simultaneously release one probe from one terminal while
connecting other probe to other terminal. If time interval
between probings exceeds 0.2 second, codes will not clear.



Edit: Samir, I'll email you the PDF out of the BGB - it's got diagrams and PICTURES! lol

Edit again: Here's the PDFs for anyone else who wants them. "srs.pdf" has the wiring diagram, "airbag restraint system.pdf" contains trouble shooting, reset info and codes interpretation

I think you're right, I think it's something with my connections actually.

Today I ordered the adapter harness - a bit too little, too late perhaps, I don't know. I depinned the clock-spring side of the connector, but didn't actually CUT anything off, so it's possible I could re-pin the connector, use the adapter, and be good to go!

Hey guys,

I am thinking hard about doing this swap, but I see a lot of people who are having trouble with it and I need to drive this car daily. I have a few questions, and I know some of them have been answered, but I want to be 100% confident and clear before a buy the parts to start the swap. My car is a 95 USDM by the way. First off, if I am lucky and able to find a 98-99 wheel do I still need to do splicing and modding to get the airbag to connect? What about the Rav4 wheel (looks pretty much the same imo)? Regarding cruise control, will I not be able to use my existing 6g cruise control stalk?

Shopping list:
7th gen Wheel or Rav4 wheel or 98-99 6gen wheel
7th gen airbag
Airbag connector adapter
???

Ok, thank you very much. I really appreciate all of the knowledge that all the people of this forum have shared with me so far, it honestly means a lot.

i disabled my cruise control, the red stitch steering wheel didn't have the extra cruise control lever, but I've never used it anyway.

Hey guys, got my steering wheel on, I would like to wire up my CC lever. Does anyone still have the splicing information, or can anyone confirm that the connections batman posted are correct? One of the CC levers I have has 3 wires coming off of it, and the other has 2.

I was expecting to be able to do the same, but the new stalk is much shorter inside the wheel than the old one was, the old one I have does not fit.

The ebay listing says that it is off of an 03 celica, but it looks more like a rav4 wheel to me, no leather wrapping, just the same material as our e-brake. The CC off of my car has 3 mounting screws, but the new wheel only has 2 mounting holes, and the mounting area is much smaller making it so that the old one will not fit.
