Hi guys, just wanted to know if anyone has come up with a fix for the problems with fitting a sports steering wheel in a x-series Falcon and in particular the XG ute, I have two boss' s both for X-series-one came with the momo (not long enough)-supposedly was used on XF +XG and one I've just bought saas BK182L which is the only one listed for XG, I googled this problem and found dozens & dozens of people with the same problem-surely there has to be a way to fix this like somehow moving the combination switch in a bit more, will add a couple of pics, any ideas are welcome, cheers, Johnny.

File comment: This is the saas BK182L the only one listed for XG.It rubs on the combination switch and isnt on the spline fully.

Hi guys, sent a email to saas sales and they responded very quickly, he says they've had this problem before, my XG being a 94 model apparently has a XF steering column meaning it needs the BK151L instead of the BK182L, so there you have it most XG's apparently have XF columns except for the later XG's.I'll update this thread if this is not correct, cheers, Johnny.

Just an update-got the BK151L from Autobarn this morning (this is the one saas sales recommended) this one lists as Fairmont Ghia and is shorter than the BK182L but slightly too short to turn the indicators off (see pics) so after a thought I used some washers between the combination switch & housing to get it to work and alls good so far, cheers ,Johnny. :D
