OK OPERATION STEERING WHEEL....

to get the buttons out or the "boxes" the house the buttons you will need a small screw driver to pry them out . once you get them pried far enough grab them with your fingers and pull on it till you see the clip behind them. use a smaller screw driver to unclip them .the bottom buttons will be a PITA to get out. once out use that small crew driver to open the boxes. once open this is what it will look like....
arrows represent positive side on this one...

arrows represent negative side on this one THIS PIC WAS TAKEN B4 I SWAP THE LED/RESISTOR AROUND...

ok after you get them all together with your LEDS AND RESISTORS you are ready to plug back in, tops should go in fine you might need some needle nose pliers to grabb the wire to connect it back to the box for the top. and for the bottom you are going to have to pull the airbag off. i didnt unplug the battery or do any of that funny $hit. go about it how you want to thou, im not responcible for your actions :uhoh: .
to pull the airbag off your going to need a small screw driver that will fit in the little holes on the side / back of the steering wheel . as you push the screw driver in them and put pressure on it you will feel something compress about a 1/4 inch, while it is compressed pull on the top of your steering wheel airbag , that side will pop off and repeat for the other side.once off this is what you will see...

the small wire i em holding is the wire for the bottom right button box. you will have to re route this to get enough wire to plug the box back in. it should look like this after the reroute...
UserPostedImage
i used a screw driver and some needle nose to reroute it. now b4 you button everything up make sure you test your lights to make sure everythng is working alright. then just push the AIRBAG back on and your done. Canadianhevy: NOTE I DID NOT DISCONNECT THE AIRBAG.

All of this looks so awesome, idahoblkss!

I commented on your photobucket video because I couldn't get registered here.
So this message is a duplicate, sorry about that!

2 questions...

On the odometer/gear selector overlaminate, were you able to use the same 3mm flat top LED's?

Did you ever do your radio? Or was there something about it that you thought we be too difficult?

Man, thanks for all the pics and tips. I've done soldering, and worked with LED's on my R/C planes
so most of this is not new to me, but your pics/tips gave me the courage to take the interior stuff
apart!

Okay so this may sound like a dumb question, but how will I be able to tell which side is positive and/or negative on the circuit board? I would like to convert my 2004 Chevy Silverado, but I'm not sure if the pictures posted are the same layout as mine.

Thanks!
