    Question Whats the dillio with fitting an aftermarket steering wheel?

    I would like to fit an aftermarket steering wheel to my car although it poses me a couple of questions.

    1. How do I get aroung the fact that my airbag light will always be on as the new wheel won't have an airbag?

    2. Will the boss kit from an Astra G fit a zafira A?

    3. Once the boss kit is fitted I presume pretty much any wheel will fit yes?

    Some boss kits come with something that plugs into the airbag connector stopping the light comming on. Regards the other, i would imagine that the boss will to make specific ie, momo boss for momo wheel.

    Well it states it fits most aftermarket wheel suppliers, so seems ok, say it also fits airbag versions, best off sending them a message to confirm it cancels the light.

    I Used to have a MG ZR with an aftermarket steering wheel, The bulb in the dash was removed, and a bit of black tape over the sighn on the dash. Checked with an MOT man and he said it was legal to do that.
