Thread: W202 Steering Wheel

    W202 Steering Wheel

    I have seen a few other threads on steering wheels, but didn't want to hijack. If this should not be a new post, please merge.

    I recently purchased a leather and burl wood W202 Steering wheel. Can I use my wheel's internals to mount this on my car? Will I need a new airbag? They look similar but it seems like in some of the other threads people have mentioned that they are just different enough not to fit.

    That is a late steering wheel, which is backwards-compatible with earlier cars, so it can work if you swap stuff around.

    Is your car an early 1992 with an airbag that matches the shape above? Late 92 and all 93-up 500E's have a Sportline "triangle" shaped airbag which WILL NOT fit the steering wheel shown above.

    Got it, thanks. My car is a late 93 build. I just looked on ebay and found a black airbag for $60. Hopefully it's nothing shady.

    Once you get a matching airbag, you'll need to swap over the contact ring from your existing wheel, to the new wheel. Otherwise it should be plug+play.
