    Fitting momo steering wheel

    I have just got myself a nice momo v6 wheel to go in to my astra, but there is something I am not sure about.

    As my current wheen has an airbag in and the new momo one does not how do I fix this?

    I know that you can buy boss kits for cars that had an airbag but as my new wheel does not I am a bit confused.

    Shorely if I got the boss kit for a car that had an airbag on the wheel and fitted a new wheel without one the airbag light would come on??

    I hope someone can understand and help me with this.

    Regards.

    think you would need to get it disabled in the ECU.

    The momo boss kit comes with a resistor that fools the system into thinking there is an air bag fitted.

    I've got an Astra H wheel fitted to my coupe. Any information on how to trick the ECU to get the airbag warning light would be much appreciated! Sorry to hijack the thread

    Mine came with a fuse holder and a 5 amp fuse.

    That way if it is set off it just blows the fuse.

    Assuming you informed your insurer of the mod, how did changing to a non airbag steering wheel affect your insurance premium?

    I'd be suprised if it made no difference as you've removed a safety device from your car.
