    Technically speaking the answer is NO

    But some members have reported that the original badge could be prised off and replaced with an eblem from a wheel centre cap for example.

    GM do not produce this part individually and the only official way to replace it is to buy a new air bag assembly with the correct emblem.

    Personally I think it will come off with some careful investigation but dont hold me to it.

    I'm not sure if you have to replace the whole air back assembly, I was looking into this recently and noticed that vauxhall seem to do the cover seperately. I was quoted around £15 + VAT for a vauxhall one, he opel one may be slightly more dearer. Ill try to find the part numbers.

    That is what the EPC says in the title, have a look in the diagram under the corresponding number and it seems to be the cover.

    Part number: 90512356 being the actual contact buttons that go behind the cover.

    I may of course be wrong. But your dealer shouldnt charge you anything for ordering the parts in to have a look. I'm just going by the EPC illustrations.

    My wheel has 2 buttons for the horn on the sides of the central part of the wheel , when the leather of those button was cut I went to the dealer.
    and he told me that I have to change the whole wheel including the airbag.
