    HELP Needed changing steering wheel!

    Hi all, I currently have an A3 with a 4 spoke steering wheel, I have bought a 3 spoke steering wheel and I would like help to remove and install the steering wheels safely.

    I have searched and not found an guide on this.

    Any help or advice appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Why would I need a new airbag? I have a 2009 car se spec that has a 4 spoke steering wheel, I'm just changing the wheel to a sport spec steering wheel that is 3 spoke.

    3&4 spoke airbags aren't interchangeable due to the locating pegs sitting in different positions. Don't think there are any exceptions to this either so unless anyone knows any different, as jb0o said it's a new airbag required too.

    Oh dear, well thanks for the input then, as the airbags looked the same I was under the impression they were the same.
