M Sport Wheel Install pointers with PADDLES! *Supplement

Guys just a couple pointers for those of us owning automatic flappy paddle cars when installing the Mtech Msport or any other sport type wheel.

I followed the guide on here but here are my notes.
  1. -To release the air bag just take a small screw driver and press on a large paper clip type spring wire to release. screw driver goes in parallel to the floor.
  2. -For the 16mm hex bolt his was VERY hard to break loose, wheel kept turning. Definitely recommend buying the gorilla breaker bar for lug nuts.
  3. -The wiring connectors on each side you need to remove to get the paddles out of the old wheel were a nightmare to get out. I almost destroyed one side. Took a bunch of pictures so you can see how to approach it. There is a tiny tab on the bottom side holding this b***** in.
    Almost gave up on it tried for probably 45min. Either a flat head or tweasers will work, flat head could damage this delicate connector.
Final thoughts like Springer.
Glad to be done, took a ride out to the gas station paid $3.5x for 91 oct. Fry's .20 discount popped up, thought it was .10, ill take it an run.
It's been $4 for a while. Must be a reward for my efforts.
This wheel really feels like luxury, the way the sport wheel should have been made.
