    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
