PostSubject: New (to me) steering wheel...   Thu Sep 23, 2010 4:49 pm

Thanks to Mike (200OZ from the wagon forum), I have a cool new wheel in the Marshmallow! He sent me a link to an eBay ad a while back saying it was something I had to have... So I clicked the link, and he was RIGHT! I think it's out of a T-Type.



I finally got around to installing it today. It's about 1/2" less diameter than the stock wheel, but the grip is much thicker. I LOVE IT! I had to remove my airbag, and coil, and trim about 1/4" off the back of the wheel to get it to clear the airbag column, but it was still an easy install. Horn even works! Smile

Thanks Mike!

How do you prevent the airbag light from flashing with no bag?

nice wheel...it looks like it was made for your car

i have always thought that the factory wheel in the caprice is too skinny and a little bit too big in diameter

I love the wheel on my '93. Just wish I had more than those two stupid buttons to press the horn.

I thought everyone knew. All white Roadmaster wagons come with analog guages and a floor shifter.

Thanks guys, I diggit too. Smile

And yeah, just unplug the bulb. Wink Or you could wire in the proper resistors across the circuit, but I'm too lazy for that.

Rich, no Navi. It's just a Pioneer DVD. I paid 300 for it last Christmas. Love it.

And the floor shift is out of an Olds Bravada.
