    Default Steering wheel

    Will a Steering wheel from a f/lift vec/sig fit the latest astra's and vice versa. They look exactly the same? Basically i've been offered a new one but its from a astra, just wondering if it will fit?

    The answer is yes they are interchangeable. However, the steering wheel stereo control loom is different between Astra and Vectra/Signum.

    This is not a problem however, simply swap everything from your existing steering wheel over to the new one.

    I have done this just last week, I fiited an Astra VXR steering wheel to my Signum. I have done a how to in the How To section which should help.

    The Pink and Yellow plugs are the airbag plugs mate - the early vectras only had the one yellow plug, later changed to the twin plug setup. What year's your motor...?
