    M Sport Airbag Removal

    Hi

    I was wondering if someone could please help me, tried to remove the airbag today to wrap my wheel trim but the airbag just will not budge I have put a lot of pressure on the spring using the hole in the wheel but still nothing, is there something I am doing wrong?

    Cheers

    Chris

    Can you feel the spring "give" at all? That way, you know you are pressing it and not sliding past. And you are using a flat-ended torx-type tool (T25) rather than the hit-and-miss method of a screwdriver?

    I was gonna offer to rush you in the post my Torx T25 which is ideal for the job. But I see you went for the even faster self-help option
