Default mercedes re badge of dodge sprinter.

Question: i am re badging my Dodge 05 sprinter, and was told by the dealer/ body shop that they can't apply the after market steering wheel badge due to liability concerns. Has anyone encountered this ? The concern was that the badge will become a projectile when the airbag goes off.
Many thanks for some rational input.
Mike

What steering wheel badge did you want? The "official" way to do it is to replace that whole airbag cover and end up with a nice embossed Mercedes star logo. The "ghetto" way to do it is to buy a peel-and-stick Mercedes blue and silver hood emblem and simply paste it on top of your Dodge logo. On my 2007, it was a perfect fit. (I'm making a big assumption - that your air bag cover is similar to mine, with a flat plastic Dodge emblem.)

It's reasonable that a body shop is prohibited from doing anything to an air bag, but if you can spare $15 and know how to apply a postage stamp, you could easily do it yourself.

I removed the Dodge emblem and used adhesive on the MB cover. Didn't fit right over the Dodge emblem.

Permanent black magic marker to black out the "Dodge" name--left with a black oval. Could black out whole circle. Cheap and easy and no worries re a replacement emblem fitting right or flying off.

Sorry, I misspoke. We have a 2007 RV built on a 2006 Sprinter.
