    Seen this before - the centre bit is the air bag - so could just get another
    airbag off ebay. Alternatively remove the air bag and try some rubber
    glue/some kind of tape applied to the back of the button so that it looks
    neat from the front. Piece of piss to remove the airbag 2 screws and a
    single electrical connection - but disconnect the battery first.

    Dogger - you really are a TWAT

    Car: 2003 Zafira 2.0TD Elegance.

    Just bought this car second hand and the right hand horn button is
    ripped (still works). Anyone ever tried to repair one, or is the only
    option to replace whole wheel? I wouldn't bother myself, but the wife
    wants it to look and feel nice :)

    P.S. Am I right in thinking (from looking at other threads) that to add
    cruise control to this model I just need the replacement CC stalk and
    that the Tech2 is already set on this model?

    So your wife wants the horn?
    Sounds like your not satisfying her in the bedroom.
    She is using the car problem as metaphor for the fact your shit in the sack.

    You will also need a clutch pedal switch at the very least as well. But if
    you dont have an electrically controlled
    throttle then its probably not worth it.

    Piece of piss to remove the airbag 2 screws and a
    dont forget to disconnect the power sounder before the battery or you will
    have the alarm going off for the next week

    Thanks for that Chris. Had a quick look for "Zafira airbag" on eBay but
    no joy. Lots of hits with "Vauxhall airbag" - do you happen to know
    which models share the airbag/steering wheel with the Zafira?

    Happy to help - yes the Astra G is the same. I've seen loads of air bags
    on ebay for it
    In fact the whole steering wheel is the same. Next chance you have look in
    an Astra G - you'll see the same steering wheel as your Zafira.

    The other hint is to make sure that the key is not in the ignition when
    changing the bag and after u've replaced it, insert the ignition key from
    outside the car (just in case). Air bags are rock hard when they go off
    (but not as hard as a windscreen!)
