    Steering wheel badge

    I've ordered an opel grill and boot badge to replace the original vaux ones. The only one that left is on the steering wheel. I've seen an opel badge on ebay that replaces the griffin.
    But i've read in a few places that the original badge can't be removed off the airbag.
    Has anyone been able to remove it, and replace it? (without setting the airbag off).
    I want to get the badge to complete the 'opelising' but would i just be wasting my money on the steering wheel badge.

    This is the badge

    Tried getting the badge off earlier. It seems very securely attached to the airbag. Might just be a very strong adhesive though

    The badge is attached to the airbag with two pins on the back of the badge, i just picked off the silver griffin bit, used a dremel to take of the pins of the opel badge and then just stuck it on with araldite. Didnt look great to be honest, so i ripped it off and got the irmsher one from LMF. cleaned up the area and this is self adhesive (really strong) and stuck that over. Looks great id do this if i was you, and keep the car Vx!! I realy went off the Opel look after changing it all!
