tayaste's guide - how to - heated steering wheel

How to update Disco Steering wheel to the heated.


Tools needed

Long nose pliers
Torx T20
Philips Screwdriver
16mm socket and ratchet
Air bag removal tool

Parts

Heated Steering wheel - LR017034
Clockspring - LR018556
Switch Pack - LR014308
Heated wheel connecting wire - here http://www.disco3.co.uk/shop/heated-steeri...r-p52.html
I went for the plug and play version from the shop, much easier.



First center the steering wheel




Next Disconnect Negative on the battery




Next remove the H-trim, pull from the bottom to release the four clips




Remove the T20 torx from next to the park brake release




Pull gear selector upwards to release




Starting at the cup holders pull up to release the gear surround from its clips




Remove tray from under the ashtray and the HVac unit via 4 T20 torx




This allows you to remove the 2X T20 torx screws and remove the ashtray, a bit of force was needed here.




Using the wire from Martins shop we want to break into the cig adapter to supply power to the new clock spring




Disconnect the orange multi plug on the back of the 12v supply this is where you will take the feed to power the clock spring




Run the cable up through towards the nav unit




Using the air bag removal tool, remove the air bag






Disconnect the earth and 2X multi plugs using the long nose pliers





Now disconnect the white multi plug from the top of the clock spring




Remove the 16mm steering bolt




Check and note alignment of wheel to splined shaft




Remove wheel




Undo the 2X T20 torx from under the cowling




Now you can remove the upper cowling and drop the lower to access the clock Spring and its four Philips screws.




Now's a good time to tape your clock spring up to maintain centered




Remove old clock spring using Philips screwdriver on the four screws and disconnect the two multi plugs




Route the wire you've installed from the cig lighter through the cowling





Connect the two multi plugs to the new clock spring and the new wire you've just routed




Refit new clock spring and then refit cowling





refit ashtray and gear surround




Now to the steering wheel.

We want to keep the RH switch pack





Remove the four torx t20 from the rear, these will be used in your new wheel




Now remove RH switch pack, it pulls straight up.




Disconnect the multiplug behind the switch pack




Now remove brass weight from old wheel. 3X t20 Torx

Transfer the weight to your new wheel







Now fit both switch packs including your new one with the heated wheel button and connect the wires.




Refit the 4 Torx




Now remove the new clock spring clamp




Now re-fit wheel paying attention to the centering alignment marks to where they were previously. Refit 16mm steering wheel bolt.
Plug in all the cables, you can't go wrong here they only fit in the right socket.




re-connect earth and the 2X air bag multi plugs. Then re-fit air bag to the wheel.





Re-connect car battery.




Refit H-Trim and all the other trim




Then, fire it up.







If I've missed something let me know and I'll update it Thumbs Up

Good work, Steve. Must say, it's making me want to upgrade - not for the heated wheel, as that doesn't really interest me at all, but just for the sake of it. Laughing

Considered that also, for the flappy panels, but TBH, I prefer the style of the D3 ones. Too many other things taking priority anyway. Thumbs Up

I've got a few days off work at the moment, so looking for jobs on the car to get me out of housework. I've got a dual battery to install but I think that can wait for the time being Rolling Eyes
