    Yeah as far as I'm aware you would need to swap the electrics from your current steering wheel

    After speaking to a Vauxhall technician i know it would appear that the wheel would fit however the multiplug for the airbags are different between zafira's and vectra'c and wont fit through the hole in the steering wheel...

    so looks like i'm still on the hunt for a Zafira B steering wheel...

    They are the same steering wheels fella so the plug does go thru the wheel as I've fitted a Astra Vxr wheel to my vec in the past so he's talking rubbish fella

    Vehicle : Vectra C 3.2 Gsi Auto (Zavoli LPG with Flashlube)

    Trim : Gsi with loads of "Extras"

    Engine : 3.2 Z32SE (LPG)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 131,000

    Park the car so that the steering wheel is correctly centred, turn off the ignition and remove the key.

    Wait for 10 minutes, some will say longer, so give it half an hour and then disconnect the +ve from the battery. (The waiting time allows the computer modules in the car to shut down properly).

    After that it's airbag removal time (there are how2's on the forum for that, so just search). Then you need to undo the steering wheel audio controls (T20 screwdriver with a single screw for each from behind). After that the rest will make itself clear, 3 more screws (Torx) let you remove the steering wheel button/scroller electrics. And after that, another Torx to remove and replace the steering wheel.

    I don't think I missed anything but I'm sure that if I did, someone will jump in .

    HTH

    This all assumes that your existing airbag mates with the new wheel, or, that the new airbag mates with the wheel and car electrics
