I read they are caps and the dealer replaces them. Not the entire steering wheel, just the silver caps.

Yes I have had mine replaced it is just the silver covers that get replaced. Be sure to check that they do not damage the clips on the black cover that goes on the back side of wheel. They are very wimpy and if they do not line them up just right and try to press them into place they will be ruined and the black back cover will have to be replaced then too.

Indeed. There is a special tool needed to do it right. Having all four of mine changed when the tool comes in.

No bubbles here

I just went out into garage and found no signs of any bubbles. I've had my '06 goat for almost one year and it only has approximately 850miles. This will make vehicle #27 in the 18 years i've been driving. Anyway no bubbles yet.
