    Hello.
    Can anyone help please.
    I drive an Audi A4 B7 2.0 TDi S Line 2007 Saloon which is fitted with a plain ugly steering wheel with stereo control buttons.
    However, I want to change it to a Flat bottom steering wheel which apparently came off an Audi A3 8P car.
    The questions are, I’m trying to find a Flat Bottom Airbag to fit. Does any one know the part number for the Airbag and which place is the best to find one. Also with regards to the wiring for the Airbag What is required to allow the Airbag to function correctly.
    Thank you in advance.
    Stuart.

    For a saloon it is pretty much plug and play. The airbag you need is 8J0880201 (the last letter from my research doesn't seem to matter). You do need to make a few wiring changes (3) if using your existing harness, or you can use 8J0971589B or 8J0971589H - which are both plug and play.

    eBay is your best bet for parts, though the airbags go for crazy money.

    Hello tr7,

    Please could you advise the airbag part number and also the wiring part number of the loom that plugs in to the air bag. I have tried looking on eBay but to be honest I’ve been like a dog chasing it own tail with the various airbags, looms and part numbers all over the shop that my head hurts. The correct part number for both the airbag and loom would pinpoint the correct items I’m looking for. Also, if you provide a few pictures of both items I would be most grateful indeed.
    I’ll leave it with you.

    Thank you in advance and best regards,

    Stuart.

    Hi Stuart I haven't had time to take my steering wheel off, and it's absolutely lashing it down.

    When I do I'll take some photos

    No rush at all. It’s the same up in Aberdeen, the rain has never stopped along with the wind. It’s blowing a gale. It’s what most people think about when you mention you stay there. They just look at you as if your mad.
    All the best and take care tr7.

    Regards,
    Stuart.

    Hello Tr7,

    It’s been a while but did you manage to remove the flat bottom steering wheel from your car and also take pictures?

    Sorry to pester you, it just that I’m stuck on the correct airbag to fit my wheel.

    thank you in advance,

    Stuart.

    I know what you mean about ugly wheel, I have one in my A4 and trying to find a decent price replacement by the time an airbag is sourced it gets expensive...

    Yes it does get expensive. Just finding the right air bag is the difficult part as their are so many variations. I’ll bear the head on crash in mind for when I get irate and bored one day.

    You are certainly right there. I thought my previous car was expensive to maintain which was a Jaguar S Type Sport 2.7 TDi but it comes no where even close to the Audi.
