Sport airbag

Hi everyone. I just bought a sports airbag for my mtech wheel. coming from non sport wheel. I got the bag today and it does not fit. I got it from ebay. Looks to be a fake and looks repacked. The plug where the black wire goes is blue not black. this thing just wont fit right. Where is everyone getting their airbags from need it asap since i have no wheel in the car.

Pics would help figure out your problem. I bought several on ebay without issues.

Okay let me explain in detail. The oem airbags usually have a black negative connector this one had a blue one weird. The problem is the airbag snaps in place but i can move the thing up and down side to side. Ive noticed that the bottom part of the bag is suppose to go in a crevice but that does not fit and the crevices on the right and left corner do not fit with the rubber parts(the ones where you screw the hex bolts. I tried everything to reinstalling up to 7 times and switching brackets to tightening the bolts. It still moves around up and down and is very lose. Somone please help me i am so pissed of that i just want to find this A hole from ebay.

Part numbers match up but I'm going to return it. I don't understand why it wouldn't fit.

Well I played all day with this thing and came up with something. I bent the air back bracket a bit and now it fits snug and everything work great. The msport wheel is awesome I love it.

Good for you. I was going to suggest fitting the airbag on the bracket before it's on the wheel to see where it may not be seating properly, but you obviously figured it out.

I love mine and is one great upgrade I'd recommend.

I swapped out the paddle shifters to the LCI style. Dowshift on Left and Upshift on Right. Really a nice ( but pricy ) upgrade.
