    Default Facelift steering wheel + airbag on Prefacelift car?

    Hi,

    Im wondering if I can replace the steering wheel on my 2003 SRi with one from a facelift car with the rollers for volume etc? mine has the 3 buttons either side.

    If so I would assume I will need airbag etc also.

    Has anyone do this? can you advise if this is possible.

    Thanks

    Damian

    So yours is a late model pre facelift full canbus!!

    It can be done but not without a fair bit of work, cash and trouble.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    True.... despite being on a 54 plate, Op-Com reports it as being a MY2005.

    Andy's one will be a full canbus prefacelit, as stated. The facelift wheel will go straigh on, but he'd need a new airbag. The half canbus cars had a single plug for the airbag, the full canbus cars had 2. The facelift cars had 2 plug and a different style airbag.

    Confused yet...?

    It has been done, sticking a facelift twin plug airbag and wheel on a single plug pre-facelift, but I don't know how...

    ok thanks for all the repies folks, I was just looking for something a little chunkier than the original wheel, but sounds like a lot of hassle.
