    You will need a four spoke wheel if you use your existing airbag, as it will not fit a three spoke wheel. If you buy a three spoke wheel and airbag make sure you get one with the same plugs, early ones have one plug and later ones have two plugs. I have a 2003 1.8 LS and it has two plugs. HTH

    had exactly the same problem on my 2004 Vectra and fitted a leather wheel just last week.

    Early vectras, up to model year 2003.5 were fitted with airbags connected with a single plug, after that two plug airbags were fitted.

    If you fit a 4 spoke wheel your air bag can be transferred. If a 3 spoke wheel is fitted then you will need a new suitable airbag.

    If you get a 4 spoke wheel make sure the spoke covers for the bottom two spokes are fitted. If not then obtaining them may be difficult.

    Incidently, my new wheel has completely transformed the car. Well worth doing.

    If your new wheel is worn or tatty in places you can get a steering wheel renovation kit from Buffalo for about £20 delivered and it is very easy to use.
