156 Steering wheel upgrade

Hi there,
Im looking to upgrade my 1999 156 steering wheel with a newer facelift 2004 steering wheel and have been told the new shape wheel will fit. Does anyone who this is correct and that the newer shape airbag connects correctly??

Re: 156 Steering wheel upgrade

It does and it doesn't

As well as facelift wheel and airbag, you will also need a new clockspring as the wires come out from a different location. If you use your old clockspring the wires may not reach AND yourself cancelling feature on the indicators will not work.

BTW, the hole in the middle of the facelift clockspring has a slightly thicker wall than the original so you will have to get over this to fit it. Not done it myself just yet but if I find a solution I will post it.
