SRS Light Replacing SRS contact bushings

Anyone replace the SRS contact bushings in a 1991 300CE or similar car? I have taken off the steering wheel and it appears that some of the 4 copper contact bushings have worn enough where they no longer make continuous contact with the wheel hub. Is it simply a matter of continuing down the steering column to replace this part?

got a pic?

i've always wondered what it looks like back there.i assume your srs light stays on for a while at startup like mine.from what i've been able to decipher from this forum that it is indeed the contacts that wear down behind the wheel.i had thought of scuffing up the contacts or lifting them enough to make contact this not possible?what steps/precautions should i take in removing my wheel?
how many and how much are the contacts?

You need to oredr a slip ring, about $75.00. To install, you have to take the steering wheel apart and replace the slip ring unit. The rings do not come out individually. Not too difficult to do.
