whats important ! turn your key to the acc position before reconnecting the batterie so if the airbag goes off if something is wrong it doesnt hurt anyone !!!

hi Chris love your videos, I had a quick question, my sister horn stopped working on her 2000 nissan xterra I checked the horn itself and the relay and they're both good, I even checked the wiring behind the airbag in the steering wheel, do you have any suggestion or opinion on what else it could be?
My steering wheel is fine.. yet I watched this whole video anyway... I don't know why. Good video. If I could suggest a fix, my car (VW Golf mk4) has an issue with the upholstery on the door armrests. This is a common problem with a lot of older VW and other cars. Would love to see a fix for it if possible. Keep doing what your doing.
So much talent
Very good video!! Question. What would cause the wheel to look like that in the first place? Is it suntan lotion on the hands? UV rays? Rings on the fingers? Cheap leather?
As soon as I saw Chris's uploaded videos, I pressed like button. His educational and informatics videos deserve those all likes. :-)

Gonna be getting a car soon, and I have a feeling a lot of these maintenance videos are gonna come in handy at one point or another.
I have the exact same steering wheel. but I bought a cover from I spent less than 5 bucks and it includes thread, needle and even has thin layer of padding. it wasn't a perfect match, but close enough and you have to really pay attention to notice, and there is always the option of just dying it to match. I've done a little auto upholstery professionally and even for me making a cover from scratch seems too expensive, time consuming and complicated just for a standard looking steering wheel when you can just buy a cover kit for cheap.
damn, great work and awesome instruction...
So now I know I'm not restoring my steering wheel

Please put the oil changing tip of taking a punch a putting a drainhole in the oil filter after you already broke it loose. it stops the mess of being full of oil and also making sure to put the hole in it after you verify the old one is going to come off.
#ChrisFix could this be done for Seats as well? for example normal seats and head rest and use your method and make it leather? Thanks in advance!

Bro god bless your knowledge and patience. I'd lose it after doing the stitching for 5 minutes
Edward Aguilar
