Getting rid of multifunction steering wheel?


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I just bought an '07 C4S cab, and I'm in the process of personalizing it. Among other things, I've swapped out the PCM for a Pioneer AVIC Z120BT, which is great. However, as a result I've lost the use of all the buttons on the stock multifunction steering wheel. The wheel seems too thin, too, so I want to replace it. It looks like many of the aftermarket wheels that retain the airbag (e.g. DCT Motorsports) are sold without the silver tabs that sit between the airbag and the rim of the wheel. I have a set of those from my current wheel, obviously, but they have the non-functional buttons on them, and I want those gone. I can't seem to find replacement silver tabs without the buttons. I'd appreciate any thoughts or advice.

Thanks,

Scott

If you are after just the 'silver tabs' without buttons (and assuming a manual car otherwise parts different):

When you remove the multi function buttons you may want to consider advertising them on e bay or the for sale section. Regarding the steering wheel there are options from techart that re use the existing airbag so the porsche badge and OEM look is retained. Otherwise there are a number of vehicle retrimmers that can re profile your existing wheel to make it thicker. Often XPA (extra padded wheel) come up on e bay from dealers that sell off old porsche stock. There is a thread running on planet 9 about a retrimmed wheel at the moment. The cayman and 997 share the same parts for steering wheels so this does apply.
