How long should the flathead screwdriver be approx? Or do you have a better tool?
Here, this should help!

My screwdriver was a small flathead.

You have to insert the screwdriver pointing up and then on the left side pry it to the right and with the left side pry it to the left. It's really easy when you follow this DIY:

Looks great man!

The horn should work just find, I had no problems with mine. Check your connections again to make sure they're connected and also make sure the airbag isn't getting in the way when you clip it in.

There are only two cables that connect unless you have heated steering, in which case there is a blue cable for the heated function. However, since the heat doesn't transfer, I just stored my cable behind the airbag tucked into a safe place. Other than that there should only be two things you have to plug in.

I think the steering wheel looks great although I'm not sure if I would spend that much on a steering wheel.

Oh $ 600 for the steering wheel including the sport airbag is not a lot...besides the fact that you can sell you old one as well...but trust me it is absolutely worth it, the difference from the non sport steering wheel to this one is HUGE...it feels so much better...

+1, these things new with airbag + everything else is well over $1200 bucks.

Besides the steering wheel, the airbag module and the trim, is anything else needed for the upgrade? Any harness required? Thanks!

You'll need the wheel, multifunction buttons, trim, airbag, and airbag bracket along with any necessary screws.

Thanks! So there is no additional harness?
Do you know what is the best place to find the correct screws?

I honestly can't remember exactly. Lmao. I bought the wheel and airbag harness from a separate member, and the airbag and bracket with trim and buttons from someone else.

I would suggest looking at the guides on how to do the swap. It should tell you exactly what you need.

So to go from non-sport to sport you can't reuse the multifunctions buttons?
