Re: steering wheel change
can be done, but its a sod.
swapping the wheel from a GTA into a 2003-on interior facelifted 156, or a 147 should be a doddle.
putting that wheel into a pre-facelift car is a different matter. the wiring is completely different. it can be done, i have had a 2003 paddle shift selespeed wheel fitted in place of a 2000 button shift wheel.
the wiring has been done without much fuss, except for deciphering the alfa wiring diagram.
the hard part was getting the 2003 rotary switch that sits between wheel and column fitted to the 2000 car.
the ring at the back is the wrong size, and there are two lugs that cancel the indicators on the 2000 switch that are not in the same place on the 2003 switch. they had to be plastic welded on.
dont bother if its a standard wheel....
