I did mine today.

-Tighten the bolts holding the horn mechanism all the way, they bottom out and don't take up all the travel.
-Clock spring is fairly loose (moves easily), I put a little masking tape on it to stop it turning too much. Check to make sure the loop of ribbon cable is still in the little inspection window before refitting the wheel.
-The hardest part was swapping the controls between wheels. Slow and steady with a trim removal tool.

Yep easy to do, great writeup thanks!
If it wasnt for the tight T50 torx bolt, I think I would have swaped it all over in under 10mins.

How much did Holden charge you to program the paddles ? Ive been quoted $150 which is perhaps steep for a 5min job labor time?

ok so just a question, wanting to do this on my VFII which has push button. How do I turn the steering wheel if there is no power and without the steering lock coming on?

Wives tale about SRS deploying by themselves & no need to pull fuses or battery.
Done many Holdens without disabling SRS.

Thanks for the great instructions, it took me 18mins from start to finish and that was with a OCD dusting in the middle
