Steering wheel help

Recommended Posts

I would like to install a momo wheel, but havent been able to find detailed instructions on how to get it done, or which adapter kit is needed. I contacted momo directly several months ago and never received a reply. If anyone is able to provide detailed instructions on how its done, aswell as a PN or inventory photo of which adapter kit is used I would appreciate it. I would rather not extend the wheel too much farther towards the seat if possible, so if some sort of short adapter exists that would be ideal, and also to retain horn function and keep the srs light off. Somthing like the attached photo is what im looking to achieve.

I had a similar Momo on my 911sc. It was a Momo “corse” with a Porsche emblem horn button.  I do not believe you will find any commercial adapter kit for a 996. To put on a Momo-style wheel you would have to disable and remove the airbag.  Too much liability for any manufacturer to put anything like that on the market.  It is a do-it-yourself all the way.  It’s very unlikely any reputable shop would even help with the work. imho of course.

All modern cars, sure. But not my point. I don’t think anyone would make a kit to do a conversion. It’s all a do-it-yourself project. Good luck. Don’t hit anything head on.

Very nice setup. I find hub adapters for almost all cars, but for the 996 I am not sure which will work. I even find kits that include resistors for keeping the srs light off, and the wiring for the horn button. I even found a guy that makes custom horn buttons.

Dont all modern cars have airbags in the wheel? I dont mind losing it, in fact I prefer it.


Removing, or disabling, a Federally mandated safety feature, like an air bag, will require failing the car at state inspection in many areas of the country.

Like at CA smog check? Im on good terms with my smog tech. But really I didnt ask what the consequences are of removing airbags etc. I am aware, I only asked what is required to get the job done, if anyone knows the procedure and to provide some assistance if possible.

I have been able to locate a hub that will work, and Ive selected which steering wheel ill get, aswell as a custom horn button. I only need instruction with removal of the stock setup and install of the new gear.
