I'm running a 3-spoke Audi wheel/airbag; what's wrong with running the Audi logo? After all the B5/Passat is really just a cheaper version of the B5/A4, lol...Variant Punk
That is an Audi steering wheel (You knew that right) :suspicio:
If you want to use that steering wheel you will have to use the airbag that goes with it which will have an audi logo.
I don't think the VW airbag will fit because the mounting clips that hold on the VW air bag will not work.
If you want a three spoke steering wheel you have five choices
1. The stock 3 spoke from an Mark 4 VW not an A4 Audi
2. The perforated leather 3 spoke from the 20th anniversary GTI
3. The R32 3 spoke that has an even fatter grip than the stock 3 spoke
4 The 3 spoke and airbag from the VW lupo (I don't think their are many floating around in the US)
5. The wood rim steering wheel and Airbag from the W8 passat.
Back from the dead:
I just bought a 2004 GTI leather steering wheel and airbag package.. The airbag and steering wheel are a 3 spoke design NON-multifunction.
I have a 2003 VW 4 spoke multifunction steering wheel in my GLS PASSAT 1.8T.
Can someone let me know if this will work 100%?
I was looking at a few threads. Can anyone tell me what this airbag will also fit in? ie. what other years the 3 spoke gti airbag from a 2004 will fit?
My turn signal stalk is in the mail. So, I'm going to install taht, I just wanted to know if there were any differences in installing the cruise control stalk. Can you post a picture of your set up? I'm hoping that i don't need to un-install my boost guage steering wheel pod.^ those instructions work perfectly. I did this same swap (4 spoke multifunction to 3 spoke GTI) a few months ago using that write-up. airbag wiring and jumper for the horn were easy and worked perfectly. only think i've been too lazy to do is finally install and rewire for the new turn stalk with the cruise functions that i lost from the old 4-spoke multi-function buttons.
you shouldn't have to touch the boost gauge. i don't have pics to post, but here is the link to the best info on how to wire the new stalk with cruise functions:
Multifuntion to non mf steering wheel swap help? - TDIClub Forums
it looks like you have to remove the plastic cover around the area behind the wheel, but not the wheel itself to get to run the wires, so i'm assuming this doesn't affect your boost gauge.
Here is an alternative method to making horn and cruise work correctly:My turn signal stalk is in the mail.
