Fantastic!
I definitely want to do this to my 2013 SLT V6/8spd CC with Uc 5.0. It drives me nuts not having steering wheel audio controls and the voice response/commands option is a no go IMO.

Yeah the voice recognition in my truck is obviously defective.....because I don't have any luck getting it to work. I'm sure it can't be my accent or lack thereof....

I have a 2014 with the uconnect 5.0.

My steering already have the 2 caps behind the steering Wheel. Do you know the the steering is pre wired ?

I wanted to add you are right about the clock spring, lol. I had to pull mine back out as I forgot to plug something in. When I did I didn't realize and turned the clock spring. I aligned it back up but didm;t realize it had made a whole turn. Went for a test drive and the light in the dash was on and when i went to stop I was pulling to one side. Went to backup and noticed the lines curved to one side while going straight back.

Ended up pulling it apart a final time and turning the clock spring back one rule turn which fixed the problem. I can now get the airbag off and the wheel off in less than 5 minutes. Not bad considering what a pain those spring clips are.

No you have to remove the airbag to get the covers off the wheel.

I had turned the thing so much that I had to work out the right position by turning from lock to lock and finding center.
