Hey guys!
Driving a Mazda 3 1.5l petroleum (EU Model) here :)
my steering wheel emblem started peeling a couple of weeks ago and it just looks bad and disturbs me every time I drive.
I googled a bit and found out that it's not that easy replacing it because of its location.
Any tips about what I can do?

Thanks

I don’t think you can separate the plastic/rubber cover from the airbag itself unless you drilled out the rivets on the sides, drill+airbag=Disaster!!!
Even if you did you would still have to re-rivet them and there’s just something about messing with the airbag assembly that doesn’t sound too safe at all.
If you got the airbag cover off the emblem is is kinda heat welded into the cover so replacing would be kinda difficult.
Best bet would just to buy one in good condition from a salvage yard or eBay and even then, you’re still taking a chance that the thing will even work, risky.
I would just live with it.
