Unhappy Steering Wheel Volume Switch

Just when I get everything fixed, another issue. Seems as if the car wash people when doing their "interior detail" broke the steering wheel volume up / down switch. It will lower the volume fine, but pressing it upwards returns no tactile click or movement, and no volume increase on the radio.

I don't suppose that trapezoidal piece in the picture can be removed and replaced without removing the steering wheel or other PhD level process?

Thanks.

As you indicate, seems as if this might be the part below.

I need to see where those two screw connectors are made - if exposed on the backside of the steering wheel, or if steering wheel removal will be necessary (no thanks.)

Looks like they may be screwed under where the airbag attaches. (Anyone ever removed the airbag?)

The service manual makes it look like it's a separate piece. I'll see if I can find the part number. The service manual says to get to the piece, the steering wheel must come off.

Although, looking at the parts you can order, it looks like you can only order the whole front part of the steering wheel (your original diagram).

Ahh mine did the same thing last year! My dealership quoted me a ridiculous price of over $230 to replace it so iíve decided to postpone it. Iíve found the part one line for around $80 I think but I still havenít deemed it necessary.

If you do it yourself, make sure you disconnect the battery before starting.

Attached is what I found on the airbag module and steering wheel removal. I've removed a steering wheel before (not a Cadenza) - it's not that hard, but you'll need a steering wheel puller to do it (at least relatively easily). The first set is what was listed as "Airbag removal", and the other is the steering wheel removal. As Gene said, the most important step for the airbag is disconnecting the battery.

The exact same part broke in the exact same way on my 14' last year. As I had under 50K miles on the car, it was under warranty. The steering wheel was definitely taken off as it was initially put back on at least one tooth off resulting in the steering wheel being off center. They fixed it immediately though. I could tell just by the feel that the whole "triangle" of buttons were all new and obviously came as all one piece. I've no problems with that or the other triangle of switches since.

2014 SXL, only mods are after market rims due to recall.
