is it possible to put steering wheels from earlier falcons into an fg? mostly interested in using a ba/bf chunky fpv wheel if possible. i kow the airbag looks different, but will the wheel bolt on, and will the airbag work ok on the fg wiring?

honestly, you will have to work out if the airbag, runs from the same , (eg bf use a duel stage with certain resistances etc.)system, if so pull it out and heck out the column, ef-bf use a square shaft type setup, instead of a spline like most, means you can use an open ender to steer the car, as opposed to normally needing lock pliers, haha.

p.s. maybe be worth check on your warranty situation and insurance bfore you go to far.
