    what year is you A4?
    does it look like this?Audi A4 2000 1.9 TDI Leather 4 Spoke Steering Wheel | eBay

    and your fitting this? AUDI A4 S-LINE SPORT AIRBAG WITH STEERING WHEEL 98-01 | eBay

    if so pretty easy to change

    my car is a 2000 facelift,the 3 spoke wheel I haven't seen yet,but is for a 98 on,am picking it up from olds_kool at adi.So all I should need is a torx bit for the airbag,and a big torx for the wheel then?
    thanks

    assuming the wheel you get has an airbag fitted then you are fine.
    be careful buying airbags to fit to wheels as some of them have different horn ring contacts.
    I bought an alcantara wheel without a horn ring and had to buy a TT wheel and strip the ring out as it was different to the one that is the stock item

    still easy, just make sure you remove the ignition keys as a precaution when removing the bag.
    I have taken mine off many times and never once removed the battery as suggested
