    How To Change the steering wheel badge?

    I finally got some opel centre caps, all I need now is an open steering wheel?
    How do I do this?

    Do I need to buy the airbag unit from an original opel?

    or is it possible to change the badge?


    Thanks,
    Dean


    P.S. its a mk4 astra G

    technically you can't change the emblem on its own

    however several ppl on here have done so but in a very pikey way and one I wouldnt recommend unless u like the idea of random objects flying into your face at high speed should the airbag ever be discharged

    the best (and only) way id advise is get a complete Opel airbag assembly


    surely searching ebay.ie or euro equivalents or even breakers in Ireland due to the branding in those markets

    i changed mine, but the mounts on the badges are quite big at the other side so after i removed it when the mounts almost like plastic rivets came out them damaged the centre a bit, My new badge is an irmscher one so it covered all this up

    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!
