Re-Wrap in a 95; "...cut the leather off my steering wheel a couple years ago and put on a Wheelskins cover: got the euro tone because it was the closest to the original look with the seams on the top and bottom halves. I ordered the black/black color scheme. I don't remember exactly what size I got but it's easy enough to measure..."

Steering Wheel with Air Bag Replacement in a 96
MIESK5 Note, check DISABLE PROCEDURE AND TIME (Always Check the Service Manual) WARNING; Read all Safety Info; Such as, remove a battery terminal (Remove both) then wait 30 minutes before attempting any work on the airbag circuits; I have found a few vehicles that had an aftermarket component in it that had a 12v DC or higher re-chargeable battery
CAUTION: Do not remove the steering column, steering wheel (3600), steering wheel pad horn switch (13A805) and air bag module as an assembly from the vehicle unless the column is locked to prevent rotation. Lower end of steering shaft should be wired to prevent the steering wheel from being rotated.
Center front wheels (1007) to the straight-ahead position.
WARNING: THE BACKUP POWER SUPPLY MUST BE DISCHARGED BEFORE ANY AIR BAG COMPONENT IS SERVICED.
Disconnect battery to starter relay cable (14300) for at least one minute to let the air bag backup power supply discharge. Refer to Section 14-00.
Remove four air bag module retaining nuts from air bag module on back side of steering wheel, and lift module away from steering wheel.
Disconnect air bag wire harness connector, and remove module from steering wheel.
Disconnect horn/speed control wire harness connector in steering wheel.
Remove steering wheel retaining bolt.
Install Differential Bearing Cone Remover/Replacer T77F-4220-B1 (2-jaw puller) and remove steering wheel. Route contact assembly wire harnesses through steering wheel as steering wheel is lifted off shaft.
Make sure the vehicle's front wheels are in the straight-ahead position.
Route air bag sliding contact wire harnesses through steering wheel opening at the 3 o'clock position. Position steering wheel on steering shaft so the alignment marks are aligned. Be sure air bag contact wire is not pinched.
CAUTION: Make sure wiring does not get trapped between steering wheel and air bag sliding contact (14A664).
Install new steering wheel retaining bolt and tighten to 23-33 lb-ft.
Connect horn/speed control wire harness to contact wire harness, and snap connector onto steering wheel clip.
Connect air bag wire harness from air bag sliding contact to air bag module and install module to steering wheel. Tighten module retaining nuts to 4-6 Nm (35-53 lb-in).
NOTE: When the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal driving symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) (PCM) relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 miles) or more for the powertrain control module to relearn the strategy.
Connect battery to starter relay cable. Verify air bag warning indicator

And, to pull the steering wheel in the late models, a 2-jaw puller is needed. There are no holes to thread in the usual bolts for a steering wheel puller, thnx to Dustball!; MIESK5 Note, Suggest Right Clicking this Hot Link & Open in New Window
