Gday, I found a mint condition steering wheel identical to this at u-pull it and picked it up for $15 just wondering if anyone knows what model ford the wheel originally came from, as it fits straight on to my EA. I need to find the hord pad as it was missing when i found it.

Also did this wheel have cruise control buttons in the circular horn pad, as there is three plugs / connectors in the middle of the wheel where the hornpad should be.

Just looks like 1 Horn, 2 Earth, 3 Cruise.

Is this the case. As i have cruise control on my EA, But it is up in the little Triangle next to the Trip Computer. Wouldn't mind wiring it up to the wheel as well.

Thanks MRE-40L & partie

This Clears things up. The photo isn't actually of the wheel i have. Just one i found in someone's gallery that is identical to mine.

So to get the cruise control buttons i need to find a fairmont centre pad. Is this correct and it should just bolt in right.

This wheel was from an EB2-ED, that didn't have the cruise control. The EB1 had the same wheel as the EA.
