    Default VXR Steering wheel

    Hi,

    Does anybody know whether it's possible to fit a VXR/OPC steering wheel from an Astra or Zafira to a Vectra?

    I'm looking at ebay for the moment to find a new steering wheel, but must of them states that they are from an astra, therefore this question.

    Look forward to hear from you guys.

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards

    Morten

    Yup, they're all the same mate including the airbag. As long as your car is a full-canbus model, they'll fit...

    Does that include pre-facelift full canbus models?

    I remember reading that pre-facelifts cannot have a facelift steering wheel for some reason? (am I right?)

    Yes and no. I fitted one to my pre-facelift full canbus one, but needed a new airbag to go with it. As long as you have the pink and yellow plugs, the rest of the fitment is the same, including the stereo controls. I always thought these were different as mine was a pre/full setup, but when I went to put the VXR wheel on my facelift Signum I had the same problem, so I suspect the wheel I had may have been from an Astra.

    I didn't have the horn or wheel controls on mine in my old Vec because of this, and just put the old wheel back on for MoT time. You could've sorted it, but I couldn't be bothered with all the wiring etc...

    Perfect and thank you for the quick response.

    Just to clarify things, this means that if i buy a steering wheel from ebay without the airbag, i can dismount my existing steering wheel, reuse the airbag and mount my new steering wheel?

    The reason why I'm asking is that i've found one on the german ebay-site, and in the description the only state that it's for a Astra and Zafira.

    By the way, my car is a Vectra Caravan MY 2006 1,9 CDTI

    Yes, if yours is defninitely a facelift (which it should be, being 2006, but there were some late registered models) then it'll go straight on mate, no new airbag needed
