Si: I think it's an irmscher one, but not sure, got it on e-bay £27 delivered. Bought it for the leather grip rather than the steering controls. This one anyway:



Fastrui: A quick guide:
Take out the two grub screws using a T20 torx driver from the back of the wheel, and the airbag unit will come out on a yellow cable.





Disconnect this, and you have access into the holding nut.
Using a socket set, remove the main nut.
Unclip Horn Wires.
Lock your steering lock.
Pull off the wheel.
Put new wheel on straight.
Fasten holding nut back on.
Re-attach horn wires.
Re-attach Airbag cable.
Fasten two grub screws.

Job done

Kash - thats the sxi/sri steering wheel like mine :thumbs: They look alot nicer with the leather than the plastic ones. Have you got your steering controls wired up or just left em?

Just left em. I need to get hold of a hynes to look at the schematic of the control. If it's easy enough, I might wire em through, otherwise I wont bother.

The airbag light should come on if the wheel is disturbed or removed. The "correct" way to turn the light out is to take the car to a Vauxhall dealer, hand over £40+ and they will plug it into Tech 2 and reset it.
Although there are other methods to turn it off :wink:

Well It doesn't. Honest. I have had the car in for a service and check since, and nothing was mentioned.

I assume your bag warning light is actually working? To remove your original wheel you would of had to disconnect the airbag, on re connection, the light should have come on.

Light works! When I think about it, we checked this on the comupter at a mates garage when we did it, and it was all fine.

Just a bit of a mystery then. If it should it didn't, which makes me think that it shouldn't. If you know what I mean.

Defo didn't reset it, just check the status. I said to him I'm sure that light should have come on, and we looked and it hadn't. Just a check, he plugged in. Don't know about the tech 2 thing tho.

nah even in the haynes it tells you to disconnect the battery when changing wheels this stops the airbag light from coming on as you normally use the original bag anyway

Disconnecting the battery stops the bag going off as you remove the wheel, it doesn't affect the warning light at all.
If the wheel has been removed the light should come on, regardless of wether the standard wheel has been put back on or an aftermarket one.

Can't see how. What would happen if you removed ecu as well? It could never know that the airbag was removed.
