    The air bags are different so you need to change the lot over to fit iirc.

    If its even possible - I cannot remember - then yes the wires and everything as I think the airbag is a different shape? If its not then just swap them out of the wheels.

    just tried getting the wire out but seems to be stuck. air bag is diff as it a 3 spoke im putting in and a 4 spoke coming out. would it be possible to just plug the one wire into the air bag and leave the other free? seems to be my only option but dont want a airbag fault on dash :/

    Its not worth the risk of not connecting it up correctly as it will probably show up a fault and/or fail to deploy or go off at a random point.

    Can we see the front of the second please mate? I'm sure the twin plugs came in on the full canbus cars which an 03 wouldn't have been. Need to see the front of it to confirm...

    Basically one is a single stage airbag and the second is a twin stage. Both are different in terms of design internally, and the cim unit,(steering column module) and more than likely the complete system, You will have to find the same as whats in yours they are not interchangable.
