3 spoke steering wheel question

376 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  prsbirds
My friends mother is picking up an 03 cabrio this saturday and I when I was down at the VW lot checking out 20ths and Touregs I saw her cabrio and it had a 3 spoke wheel in it. I know she wouldn't care or even know, but is it possible to do a direct swap of the two wheels?
I'm pretty sure cabrio 3spokes are the same as all others, but my main question is do I have to take the airbag off the wheel, remove the wheel, switch the cabrios and mine, and re-assemble, or can the wheel be removed with the airbag intact and directly swap?
I havent checked out any DIY for three spoke install, but on a 1-10 how hard is doing this? Do i need any codes or is it plug+play.
thanks, sorry if I sound confusing

they should be the same spindle and they should swap right over. i've had my wheel off not too long ago and it was really no sweat, BUT, I did use a steering wheel puller.
