Hi all,

Thought id ask if anyone has replaced there standard fairlane steering wheel with an after market wood grain one??

Ive been wanting to install one but had some issues where the cruise buttons and airbag would go.

If you have done this before where did you put the cruise control buttons??

Cheers Guys :)

Aftermarket steering wheels are a no no for any cars with airbags fitted from factory.

As SWC has mentioned, best thing is to look for a factory ford wheel which will have provision for you to retain your existing airbag.

NL Concorde / EL GT share the same black leather steering wheel.
FBT is the rare cappucino leather variant - I know where there is one for sale too :)
AU Fairmont Ghia (Series II and III) along with Fairlane share the same wheel (black)
