How much of the steering wheel did you have to remove to fit it?

Here are a few pics



Any know if this will fit a 94 D1 with airbag, as the website says;

This fits all Discovery 1 from facelift in 1995 approx.

Once the steering wheel is out you can press out the necessary parts and install the new one.

I think just the horn plates on the front and then two plastic mouldings on the back. Only one of the plastic parts will go back on the rear as the metal upgrade goes where one was. It's really simple all you need is a couple of flat head screwdrivers for prying stuff out and a 19MM socket to get the wheel off.

Remember not to completely remove the bolt holding the wheel on so when you force the wheel out of place you don't hit yourself in the face with it

How do you get the steering wheel off? do you have to pry open the horn where the badge is?
