    you need a boss for a MK4 astra from any of the manufacturers listed above - the 6 holes on the steering wheel are all standard PCD and spacing

    Yeah why not.

    The Astra was the first car I had with one.

    Like Lee, I dont run an airbag either - totally down to personal preference after being injured on one before.

    It'll only take about 10mins to fit - as long as u have the correct Torx socket and a nice big breaker bar to remove the bolt.

    Follow the how-to for changing the steeering wheel - same principle applies..... some kits come with a resistor/fuse to fit in the airbag circuit to prevent the airbag light from showing......personally i didnt have much luck so decided to remove the LED from the clocks instead.

    'technically' YES as you are modifying the vehicle from standard.......

    Some ppl on here will try to tell u that you're removing a legal requirement like seatbelts etc but this is wrong!

    Seatbelts are a primary safety requirement whereas airbags are part of the SRS system - SRS meaning supplementary restraint system....the clue is in the name!
