FS: "early" W124 steering wheel + 95 S124 trunk amp

Steering wheel is marked "87 260E". Got it thinking I'd be able to use it in my '95 E320, but the clock spring section isn't the same & I had no luck transfering the guts across from one wheel to the other. Leather isn't perfect, but is MUCH nicer than in my car. . .plenty of pix available on request. $60 shipped.

This is the style of wheel for sale, but not my picture:



Also have a trunk amp for a '95 E320 wagon. Was working on getting the stock system up & running & thought I needed an amp. Turns out my stock amp was fine. . .d'oh! $50 shipped.

That's the later wheel for W124 cars.
Works on 93-95 cars, but beware...

The 93 wheel is different than the 94-95 wheel, though they are visually identical. The metal mounting hub has a different hole configuration on the early wheels vice the 94-95.

You can do some machine work on the hub and swap over the clockspring to get them to interchange, but it's not a plug and play.

Jim, thanks for clearing that up. This must be from the '93 then. The mounting hub/clock spring is the difference I was trying to describe. I thought I'd make the necessary modifications & swap mine over, but thought better of it once I had both wheels on the bench. . . this one has the solid horn contact ring, NOT the pass-thru for the short harness like on my '95.

Pix are no sweat. Just to be clear, this *IS* an airbag steering wheel, but the airbag isn't included. . . I'll snap some pix & post them here AND send them to your e-mail a bit later tonight.

Just to clear this up.

This wheel was used on all 92-93 124 E class except the 500E.

It can be fitted to any 86-93 124 model.

I have one installed on an '87 diesel wagon.

Isn't the clockspring (contact ring) different on the earlier wheels?

Sorry to take longer-than-promised to snag pix. Tried to show the condition best I could - as you can see, its not a new wheel, but its MUCH nicer than the one in my wagon. . .

I have that same steering wheel in my 91 300E. It came from a 91 300CE. Swapped right over with no issues.

Now I also pulled the same style wheel from a 1992 300E 4Matic. The 4Matic wheel did not seat properly in my non 4-MT car, and rubbed very badly on the steering column.
