      Video Review & Installation

      Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com, and today we're taking a closer look at and of course installing the MMD GTX Leather Steering Wheel available for the '15 to '17 Mustang. You should be checking this out if you're looking to ditch the factory steering wheel for one that is a little bit more race-inspired, something that has red leather accents and red stitching here and something that's got a little bit more of an angular bolstering at the nine and three positions to give you a little bit more of an enjoyable driving experience with a race steering wheel. Now, the nice thing about this particular one from MMD is that it reuses all the factory steering wheel functionality, so you can transfer over all of the buttons retaining those functions, and it's gonna reuse your factory airbag keeping it street legal. A lot of times when you pick up an aftermarket steering wheel, one that's a little bit more race-inspired than this one here, you're deleting the steering wheel airbag, which means it's only gonna be used for off-road racing only. So, having that steering wheel with all the factory functions keeps it on and off-road legal.The really nice thing about this is it's pretty affordable at right around 300 bucks and it's got the same diameter as your overall factory wheel, but it's got a little bit more of a flat bottom feature at the bottom, it's got some angular bolstering here again at 9 and 3, and the bolstering at 10 and 2 stays about the same as the factory one. So, you can keep that same factory feel, but it also gets a little bit more aggressive here in this section. Now, this is gonna use perforated leather all the way around. But if you're not a fan of this particular one, which still is pretty different than the factory wheel, there's also a suede and leather combo in the same design. So, if you're not a fan of the leather, you can have this all suede and keep leather at the bottom here. There's a red stripe at the top as well and there's red stitching on the inside for a nice accent. As far as the interior appearance, it's definitely gonna change up the look of the Mustang but in a subtle way. If you look closely at the wheel, you can see it's just a little bit different than the factory one. If you're looking to go a little bit more into left field, check out that suede one because it's just gonna add another accent detail to your interior.Now, as far as the pricing I mentioned 300 bucks there. I think that's a pretty good price just because you get such a different wheel here but still keep all the functionality of your factory one. And the install I am gonna give two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter only because you wanna have some specialty tools on deck just to make sure you're doing it properly. And of course, you wanna take extreme caution whenever you're playing with the airbag here just to make sure it doesn't deploy on you. And the first thing you're gonna wanna disconnect the negative cable on your battery so it disconnects all that function there so you can get the job done. Now, for the install we're gonna be showing you clips from the MMD GTX suede steering wheel but just understand that the install is gonna be exactly the same for this leather one. Most of the job will be done on the table. I'm gonna show you the entire process, it'll take you about two hours from start to finish depending on your personal experience. What do you say we get started?Tools used in this install include an impact gun, 15/16 socket, a ratchet, 10-millimeter deep socket, extension, T20 Torx bit the rest of these are recommended. A pick hook, needle-nose pliers, flathead screwdriver, panel removal tool, and a small Allen key along with a hammer.All right, the first step here is absolutely crucial, pop your hood and we have to disconnect the negative terminal on our battery underneath this cover. Now, you may have a couple of pushpins here you have to remove, ours are already off, so I'm just gonna pull this guy and set it aside. So, we're gonna disconnect the negative terminal on our battery here. Now, you wanna do this because you don't wanna risk your airbag going off. And by disconnecting your negative terminal here, it disconnects the power from the airbag. Grab your 10 socket, and your ratchet, loosen up this bolt here. You don't have to take it completely off, just loosen it up enough that you can wiggle this guy up. Pull this guy off and set it aside. You don't want it to come back and touch the terminals, you wanna make sure that it's completely away from the metal. All right, once you have your battery disconnected, we have to pop the airbag portion off of the steering wheel to access all the components inside. Now, to do that, I recommend grabbing an Allen key. Now in the instructions it recommends a pick, an Allen key or a screwdriver, I find the Allen key to be the perfect tool. All you have to do is go to the side hole on the side of the steering wheel here. You're gonna slip the Allen key straight in and you're gonna feel a little pin. There's a little bit of a resistance. While you're pushing with the Allen key pull back on that corner of the steering wheel airbag, and it'll pop out just like that. Do the same thing on the other side, and the airbag will pull straight back.All right, so both sides popped, just gonna wiggle it and pull it straight off. Now, I wanna disconnect the back of the airbag here, and then I'll show you guys how that pin mechanism works because there can be a lot of trial and error and frustration depending on the tool you're using. So, I wanna give you guys an idea of what that looks on the inside. But to do that, let's get this out of the way. I am actually gonna switch over to a little pick here, because we had to lift up these orange locking tabs on the pins. All right, so these two guys are basically the connectors. The orange is a locking tab, lift up on that and you should be able to pick that up and disconnect it. All right, that's your airbag and then there's this one more connector, same kind of deal, just a red locking tab, I'm just gonna push out on that, pinch and disconnect. All right, set the airbag aside. And now I wanna show you guys how we disconnected that airbag with the components on the inside.All right, now I just wanna quickly show you guys how we disconnected the airbag because it can be pretty frustrating. So, I'm gonna use this pick to point. This pin here is the retainer pin that holds the airbag in place, the airbag clips in right around here. Now, to release the airbag, you're putting your Allen key into the side hole. And when you go straight in, you'll see the Allen key hit the corner of this pin. When you push, it releases the airbag. That's what you're doing on the inside when you put the Allen key on the side here. So, that's what you wanna aim for. Go straight in and push. Now, you might slip past it just like that. So, you just gotta keep going right in and if you slip past it, come back and push. You'll feel the resistance, it's a really tight pin. All right, so that's how you do that, and now at this point, we can move forward disconnecting our next harness.Next up, we're gonna disconnect this harness in the back. And again, I find the pick to be really, really helpful here just because it's hard to get your fingers in there. So, I'm gonna use this pick to push down on the tab at the top of that harness while I pull straight back and disconnect that. We just have to take off the bolt next that's right in the dead center of the steering wheel, that way we can disconnect it. Grab your 15/16 socket, I'm gonna use my impact gun here and just get that guy off. All right, with that off, I'm gonna put that on our cup holder, pull straight back, feed the wiring harnesses through, and set your steering wheel aside.All right, next up we're on the table still working on the on uninstall, we have to remove some of the components from our factory steering wheel. We're gonna transfer over all of our buttons and the trim all the way on to our new MMD option. Now, in order to do that we need the T20 Torx bit and you'll see that there's a bunch of little screws in there, Torx bit screws. We have to get those guys off which disconnects the buttons in the trim. And then we have to transfer over the pins that will retain the airbag, and these little rubber knobs that click in as well. So, grab T20, I'm gonna use my impact gun and my extension. And I'm just gonna start working off all these bolts. Now, it's worth noting here that they are all generally the same, they're all T20s. But the silver ones or the chrome ones are at the top here, top two, and the rest of them at the bottom are all the black ones. So, I like to just keep in mind exactly where the factory things were just to, you know, replicate that on our new one. So, I'm just gonna flip this guy over so the screws come out. Got a couple of ones on the bottom here. Next up, I'm gonna use my panel removal tool here to just pop off the trim pieces, just gonna go underneath, pry up and disconnect. All right, now remember a lot of these buttons will have little connectors so when you pop them off, just pinch and disconnect any connectors on the back. All right, now for the rest of the buttons here on the sides, there are a couple more of those T20 Torx screws, so I'm just gonna get those out of the way. All right, so that guy disconnected.All right, so next up, we actually have to take the backing off. Now, in order to do that there are three T20 screws up at the top underneath of the metal plate. So, grab your extension again and go straight back there. All right, I'm gonna flip it over and dump those screws out. All right, so we flip it over, we're just basically gonna peel off these backing pieces. All right, next up, we're gotta remove these blue little rubber retainers. Grab your needle-nose pliers, just basically gonna pinch it from the bottom and pull straight back. All right, once these blue guys come off, this plate will come off as well. We're gonna set that down. All right, next up, we got to get those pins out. So, I'm gonna use this pick, a flathead screwdriver works as well. Basically just gonna pry up and pull straight up on them. Next up, basically taking the wiring harness off. It's a really good idea to take a picture of where it's laid out before you remove it, that way you can see exactly how these guys go. You can see these two come underneath, these guys go around, and then this guy's coming through the middle, gonna lift up, take it off.All right, so we got our factory wheel off of our '15 GT behind me, and it's on the table here with our MMD GTX steering wheel in the leather wrap. Now, I wanna take you through some similarities and differences between the two wheels. And the first thing I wanna start off with is the similarities. Now overall, both of these steering wheels have the same diameter. So, the steering wheel here doesn't get any smaller from MMD like some of the aftermarket race wheels you'll find. Another similarity would be the mounting bracket, you can see we transferred over all of the components to our new steering wheel. So, you can see that this mounting bracket is identical to your new MMD one, and because of that, all the factory components transfer over as well. So, that's something that it's gonna share in common that some of the other options out there might not. Sometimes you won't be able to retain your factory steering controls from the music, the voice commands and all the other components that come along with that. Another thing you're transferring over is that factory steering wheel as you can see from the empty space in the bracket. Once we have the wheel in the car, we'll be able to transfer that over.Now, as far as differences go, there are a few subtle things, some of the more noticeable things would be the leather wrap is a little bit different. Your factory will use as a pebble sheen leather, something that has a little bit of a sheen to it. Your new leather here is a perforated leather, it's also a little bit more of a matte finish and the bolstering is just slightly different. The 10 and 2 positions here use the same bolstering but as you get down to the 9 and 3 positions and has a little bit more of an angular cut to it. This steering wheel is also gonna use a leather red wrap at the top, this little stripe and it's got red stitching on the inside. Your factory wheel, of course, is all black and doesn't have that stripe there. So, a few subtle differences that just make the difference for the interior appearance of your Mustang. Overall, similar feel but different enough to give you that race-inspired styling. At this point wanna jump on to the install here, so what do you say we get started?First up for the install assembly portion on the table here is we have our steering wheel. I'm gonna start with the pins. Now, the pins can be a little tricky, but you got to insert them basically in the same location that they were on the factory one on our new aftermarket one, and again you got to put pressure and kind of like pinch the pins in together and guide them in the position and you might wanna use a pick for this as well. Getting the pin in here is pretty tricky. Once you get the first part in you're basically pinching it together and getting it to seat inside this hole. I'm gonna push it down. Now, again you have to pinch from the bottom to get it to seat through. All right, so you can use your pliers to do that. From here we're gonna flip it over, and while supporting the top of it from underneath now, I'm basically trying to push the pins down into position. You can tap on that with your pliers. Once you have that seated all the way through, you can flip it again, and you can see the little pin starting to come through here. Now, all we have to do is get the top to seat. To do that, you wanna grab a flathead screwdriver and a little hammer. And we're gonna basically just start tapping this through. There you go.Next up, we're gonna flip this guy over and we're gonna seat this metal bracket in place. Now, if you remember this metal bracket came off with these little blue rubber grommets, so we have to put the grommets back in place. So, what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna push these guys in, gonna do two at a time here. Then you're gonna flip it over, grab your pliers, and you kinda have to pull it through from the other side. So, I'm holding it on from the bottom, using my pliers to pinch and pull the rubber grommet through. All right, do the same thing for the other two. All right, next up, we have this facedown, and we're gonna put our wiring harness on. Now, remember, I thought it was a good idea to take a picture earlier. So, if you need to reference a photo that you took, now's a good idea to do that. Also because we're flipping it upside down, so you wanna make sure things are still going the appropriate way. So if you flip it again, it should be exactly how your photo looks. You have two down here at the bottom, two coming up through the middle slots and then the two coming up through the center hole here. We're gonna keep it facedown. We wanna focus on the black backing here, which we took off close to the last step of the uninstall.All right, take your black back in and you're basically gonna set this guy down. Just keep in mind with the wiring harnesses, you don't wanna try to pinch it or anything like that, just make sure the wires are clear. You wanna snap them into place, making sure that the edges of the materials here are tucking in. Once you have those lined up, take that final piece. And now we can start putting those screws back on.All right, next up here, we're gonna start focusing on our buttons. Now, you wanna do the black ones first that were at the bottom, because they're gonna seat underneath of the chrome ones. Make sure your harnesses are fed through correctly, you're gonna plug them in. You should hear that click and then seat them in their respective locations depending on which side you start on first. From there, you wanna hold this guy in place and grab the factory screws and put them back through. I know this is tough to see.Next up, we're gonna do this silver screw in the corner here. Let's do the black one on the other side. All right, so this one was a little trial and error, we have to take that bolt back out, that bolt has to sit on top of the next piece of trim here. So, we're just gonna pull this top guy off of our black button. So next when we focus on the OK button we're gonna plug it in and when we seat this, it'll sit on top of where that bolt just was. So, now we can put that bolt back through and it tightens down both the top and the bottom trim. Grab another one, and put it up here. Same thing on the other side here. All right, now we can finish off with this bottom trim. This one really has an audible snap there, uses the two longer black screws for the bottom.All right, so now we're back in the vehicle, we have to feed the airbag plugs through the top here before we can bolt this guy down. Make sure that the harness is also going to come through the middle, just like that, so it's going to seat in together. With that there, we wanna hold this in place. So, grab your factory bolt, that 15/16 bolt, grab the harnesses out of the way, wanna thread this guy on by hand at first. Once you go in as far as you can by hand, grab your socket and tighten it down. You wanna make sure this wiggles left to right, but not forward and backward like this. First, let's plug in our master harness here, this big guy, the big gray guy, it's gonna go straight back into the steering column. Once that clicks in, we can start focusing on our airbag. For the airbag here let's focus on the black and yellow plugs. You'll see on the backside of the airbag, there's a black clip and a yellow one. So make sure they're color-coordinated. Wanna make sure you're plugging those guys in. Gonna make sure you're plugging those guys in and you can push down on the orange locking tab once they're on. From there, grab that third plug and you kinda have to lift it up, so it's a little difficult to see here. You want to make sure that the Pony logo is upright, plug in that harness, drop the red locking tab and now we can connect our airbag. All right, if everything lines up, it should snap in correctly, just like that. At this point, you're good to go.That's gonna wrap up my review and install for the MMD GTX Leather Steering Wheel available for the '15 to '17 Mustang. And again, guys, if you don't have a '15 to '17, if you're rocking an '18 and newer Mustang, this one's not gonna be for you but there are other options out there for you.
