In this video, we're going to be working with our 2006 Chrysler 300. We're going to show you how to remove and replace your vehicle's driver air bag, the one that's in your steering wheel. Before beginning this procedure, it's important to disconnect your battery's negative terminal and isolate it, and allow it to sit and discharge for about 30 minutes before touching any part of the air bag system.

Here are the items you'll need for this repair: 10mm socket, ratchet, socket extension, flat head screwdriver, gloves

Lift up the cargo cover with the rear carpet here. You'll find our battery underneath. Using a 10 millimeter socket and ratchet, we'll disconnect the ground for our battery first, lift up, and hang it out of the way where it won't get damaged.

Be sure that your steering wheel is telescoped all the way out and facing forward before working on any part of the column. Using a 10 millimeter socket and ratchet, remove the 10 millimeter screws located on the back of the steering wheel; there’s one on either side. These are usually captured screws, which means once they're backed out all the way, they don't actually come out of the steering wheel. These do. You may have to move it just a little bit to get the screw on this side. That's all right. Just make sure it's centered when you remove it.

Carefully pull the airbag and steering wheel cover toward you. Be sure to disconnect all your connections from the back of the airbag, not the steering wheel side. Yellow marked connectors mean that they are part of the airbag system, so be extra careful with those and make sure you touch some metal surfaces a few times before working on them as a static shock can set this bag off. Then we have our horn connection at the top. Remove this retainer from threads.

Just so you can see what I did, this tab right here is what secures the horn connector, so I just put my thumb nail under there and just lifted that up a little to slide it off. Now, make sure you place this bag facedown under something solid like a workbench or at least far away from you while you're working and somewhere dry. Again, just so you can see what I was doing when removing the air bag connections, there's these two little tabs, one on each side at the three and nine o'clock positions, you just pinch those together and pull back. Don't worry about remembering where these go because they are color-coated.

Touch some metal components of the vehicle to make sure that there's no static charge on your body and reconnect your airbag connectors. Snap that retainer back over the stud and reconnect the horn. Lay your airbag back into the wheel and reinstall the two 10 millimeter bolts with your 10 millimeter socket and ratchet.

Turn your key to the on position and reconnect your battery. What this does is ensures that there is power going to the airbag when you connect the battery back here where you're safe as opposed to connecting your battery going into the vehicle and sitting in front of the SRS system you just worked on, engaging the key and risking being hit by a malfunctioning airbag or clock spring component.
