Did the 05 have radio controls on the wheel, if not there is no wiring in the column for the controls. Drew
Thanks Drew. Yes, I know what you mean. It's ridiculously expensive, IMO. It took me a looong time to justify the price. 9 months, to be exact. Anyway, I really, really like it. It feels great. Make sure to post some pics of your interior if you decide to change it.Wow that really looks good Maximo Park!!! I too would have bought the SC wheel if it wasn't so dog gone expensive:sad:. Although now I'm thinking of changing over my interior to SC covers:-o. Merry Christmas Drew
In one of the posts in this thread someone mentions that the 03 & 04 wheels are getting rare and the prices are going up and they are very hard to find. Like I said above, Automotix.net is where I had to go.I've got a Pilot wheel from '05 or '06. Doesn't work with my '05 E. I need an '03 or '04. So if this wheel will work for somebody just make me an offer and send me a PM here.
Sorry about that, I changed web hosts recently. A zip file of the pics from my last post is at http://megat0n.com/Pics/E-Wheel-Swap-Pics.zip.I will attempt the swap to a Pilot wheel and can't find a spot where the instructions with pictures that work still resides. Help would be appreciated.
You should post some pics of what you did for the ground wire.I know this is a long thread thats been going on for ages but... i thought ide add some of my own experiences
i just installed my steering wheel and shift knob. now i forget if i mentioned it but i had purchased the only full leather steering wheel for elements... now pilot wheel might have same issue im not sure. but..
my steering wheel was a 2007 orange stitching (i restitched to red) but it appears a 2007 wheel is lacking a drilled and tapped hole for a ground wire that is on 2009+ elements
i was able to reposition the wire to use another screw but I thought ide toss that out there
all in all very easy didnt need a puller and was done in under 30 min
