    confused Steering wheel removal??

    Hi,

    Has anyone actually changed their steering wheel on their vectra??
    I have bought a 3 spoke wheel as opposed to my 4 spoke wheel, i know how to remove the airbag...but not sure what size bolt holds the wheel in place...

    Just want to make sure i've got the right tools before i go taking the airbag off then finding i need to go to the shops to buy a new bit...

    If you've changed from a four spoke wheel to a three spoke wheel then you'll also need the three spoke airbag - your current airbag won't fit.

    Also, depending on the year of manufacture there is another point to take into consideration. IIRC, it was around 2003.5 that they changed from one connector to two connectors on the airnags, so you need to again make sure you match up the ones relevant to your car year.

    the bolt is a whopping big TORX one.. but i can't remember the size out of my brain...it's not too long, but it is M15 thread, so it'll have a relativly big head size..
