    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi (VXR Styling)

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 110k

    Default Astra & Vectra Steering Wheels?

    Are they interchangable like the air bags are? The preface one on the CDTI has seen better days, can I strip the wheel then fit the 3 button parts and airbag etc?

    Thanks

    Yeah I have the lower astra trim in my 2.2 and it needed modding to fit, so everything should just bolt on then except the lower spoke? Hope so ha...

    no other parts where needed , i bought a new one from ebay ( Romania ) and dean changed the plate over where the airbag go,s , was easy to do , ( maybe a pm to dean just to be sure )

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time

    The H wheel doesn't have the air ah base plate or any other part, so can I just transfer my plate and the rest of the parts?
