Airbag loose after M3 wheel install

not sure if this happened to anyone after M3 wheel install but after i installed the M3 wheel, the airbag seems to be loose compared to before. like i can wiggle it and you have to press firmly on top only of the airbag for the horn to go off.

has this happened to anyone before?

make sure all the bolts on the airbag bracket are tight. could be a bent bracket as well.

when I initially installed my msport wheel I had the same issue. Ended up being a bent bracket, bought a new one and it fit perfectly.

Thanks! yes i think i might do that.

First i'll check if the hex bolts are just loose.

anyone know the size of the hex bolts or what type of wrench to use?
