3 Spoke Steering Wheel Airbag Solutions


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of an air bag cover without the actual bag? I know when people upgrade to aftermarket steering wheels they no longer have the airbags. So I've located a 3spoke wheel but does not include the airbag. Its easy to see that 4spoke bag will not work. Are there any solutions to this issue as the airbags for this wheel is as rare as locating the steering wheel itself.

Looking to find a solution to the air bag in the steering wheel, hopefully an air bag cover

Sorry, that doesn't exist as far as I know. There are several three-spoke air bags on eBay right now, but they are $600 or so. I don't think that brand new ones are much less. If you want to go this route, you can install a MOMO wheel for about $200 including adapter (doesn't include the airbag). MOMO makes some nice wheels, I show one installed on my Boxster in this article here: http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Boxster_Tech/62-SUSPEN-Steering_Wheel/62-SUSPEN-Steering_Wheel.htm (see picture 5).

Hope this helps,

Wayne

As you have noticed the 4 spoke air bag will not fit a 3 spoke wheel. They are hard to find at a reasonable price. When I switched to a 3 spoke years ago I got lucky. Local owner was making his S into a track car. I got his 3 spoke and air bag for $400.

We have a local lady Boxster owner who got a 3 spoke and air bag for free. Another local owner had totaled his car. So a few of the local owners went to the tow yard and did the swap.
