    look at your origional wheel and your new one side by side
    one of the wheels has 2 pins which the airbag seats onto

    my car had the pins so i needed the s line wheel from a later car 2007

    how much did you pay for it

    Hi
    There are 2 airbag systems. single stage and 2 stage. You need to match an early single stage 2pin system with an early wheel pre 2007. A 2 stage system will fit but not work in a crash . If your car is after 2007 you need a 2 stage airbag for the system to work ie: 4 wires. I know because i nearly made the same mistake on my 2007 SB.

    I have the correct loom and slip ring for a dual stage airbag if you want it. PM me. The single stage will 100% not fit as I had the exact same problem.
