    Default Changing the steering wheel

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask...

    Can I change the steering wheel from a pre-facelift wheel to a facelift wheel (VXR Vec / Astra / Corsa)?

    Will the volume controls still work if I can?

    If it is 4 spoke you may have difficulty alongside whether the car is full canbus or not.

    pre facelift vectra's if it has the button steering control's will not work with the facelift scroll control's, due to half Canbus and full CanBus system's, airbag's are also slightly different, the facelift one has a bump in the middle at the top where as the pre is flat all the way across, i know astra vxr wheel's fit the facelift model's bbut not sur on the corsa vxr one's...

    Cheers mate. It's a pre-facelift V6 CDTi I'm looking at. So I couldn't change the wheel for something a little smaller / sportier from another new vauxhall?

    Cheers guys.

    does it have the 3 button's on each control ??? if so you can get an sri one from something around the same year...or spend mega mega money on an IRMSCHER one....my prefacelift is an 05 plate and is full canbuss so has the scroll wheel's, this mean's i could use a newer steering wheel if i wanted to as i have the full CanBus system i could also have the wheel and air bag and it will fit....

    I take it I could transplant the wiring / buttons from a preface lift to a post facelift wheel? Would give me a new leather covered wheel with the old controls. Or is this not do-able?

    It all comes down to haw many wires there are for the airbag, as Ditch said. If your airbag has 2 wires, a pinkand yellow, then it's a straight swap with the steering wheel but you'll still need a new airbag. If you only have one wire, then it's not an easy job. It has been done though, by 3.2_V6_VXR. No idea how he did it though...
