OK so got my wheel, all my little parts and got her swapped in. SO much better. I love the feel of the wood vs the leather plus it looks great. Going to plasti dip the chrome logo black because I hate it, it doesn't go with anything and the finish is a little damaged. Went in without any issues at all.
Pop the two trim covers off old wheel, unscrew the 4 screws holding in the pillow bag, Torx 30.
pull airbag off, unclip harness. unclip cruise harness
loosen but do not remove the 19mm nut
yank yank yank, wheel comes loose, remove nut, remove wheel.
place new wheel on splines. there are alignment tabs, can't really screw it up
reinstall nut, connect up harness (need to test my cruise, i dont plan to retain it when i go NA-T so i didnt swap it over)
install sub harness adapter
put airbag in place (be mindful of where you put the adapter and plugs to not bind with horn operation)
install two screws to hold bag in place.
