    Thread: changing the steering wheel-need adapter

    1. 09-19-2012 10:02 AM #1
      Will vw# 191419514 hub adapter work for changing my steering wheel to the larger 45mm splined wheels found on jettas? The fox has a flimsy steering wheel that is bent and I have a nice European wheel from a 93 jetta (Non airbag) that I want to swap over. Just wanting to make sure the fox didn't have some odd ball splines or something before I order the adapter.

      That's the one you need.

      If you were a Volkswagen....who would your owner be?

      I can but I am not sure it will be much to look at. The Fox steering wheel is warped for some reason and the coating on it is sticky and starting to peel off. The jetta wheel is a lot cleaner, not warped, and feels better on the hands. The adapter is $39 bucks from VW so i have also just thought about going to pull-a-part and trying to find a nicer wheel from an older jetta with the smaller hub.

      Take either a old school puller to the JY or vice grips and a hammer both work to get it off.

      good to know, I also have nice wheel from a 93 Jetta, tri spoke, with a thick grip that I've been wanting to get installed on the Fox...problem is no adapter. I think I have a later column somewhere that has one, I'll try the vice grip hammer technique and see how it goes.

      thx
