Done that....It was really stiff so that caught me out, anyway once removed i cant see how it will fit on the column because the current wheel is held on by a large bolt rather than a cluster of bolts?

Is the one piece not threaded so you screw it onto the column ( I'm guessing here ), did it say it would fit your car?

 

Give us some pictures of both ends of the piece you have bought without the wheel on it.

Oh woe is me....... The boss that was paired with the MoMo steering wheel will not fit. Checking some youtube vids it has to be a boss that bolts by the OEM bolt

I could fit the snap on/ off boss to that but i think it will be to long... Also you can see on the correct boss the MoMo will bolt on to that.

This is why it pays to do your homework first before going on a spending spree :)

Can you send the boss back?

I assumed you had a boss, you can see you need one in the pic you posted , that's why it moves the wheel too far from the indicators , as in the pic you posted

I did.....said the boss was universal and i was convinced because i can see how the wheel bolts on. The only reason i found out was by checking online how to connect the horn with the new boss. It was at that point i found out it wouldn't fit. I put it down to a learning curve and it will cost me nothing but my time.

They don't fit because the female part is to small.... I never knew they come in different sizes. So now I've ordered some more.

Where are you looking online for advice, the MR2 forums? You just seem to be wasting a lot of time buying parts and sending them back!

No i don't follow the forum, i go by images and then the link. Sending things back isn't a problem and i only get caught out if it's something i've never dealt with before.

Nope the returns are free....Sometimes i need to see the product for real since an image isn't always what it seems.

They're not exactly the same but yeah I wouldn't pay that for a steering wheel! Have you fitted it yet?

I have the correct boss now and i've ordered some clever wiring to turn off the airbag light..Depending how the wheel fits with the boss will determine if i also use the detachable steering wheel boss.

Tone don't bother with those those quick release bosses. The cheap ones are s***e and the tolerances are loose as hell. You want the wheel to stay connected to the car. Basic fixed boss is cheaper and will work fine with Momo. Airbag light fix is usually a 2p resistor in-line!

Fortunately i don't need the snap on boss but i might fit it if only to see?.... I read online about the airbag fix but i ended up getting the MoMo version just to be sure.
