I've brought a momo steering wheel from JDM forester with automatic gear box but since it arrived I’ve notice there is no cruise control stalk on it.

But have read scoobymods website about changing over the stalk control switch but no the airbag connection is wrong and the steering wheel metal frame cannot accept cruise control switch.

So can I discard the cruise control switch and just fit the JDM steering wheel on ?

Don't mind about losing the cruise control function.

All I can tell you is that my JDM 1998 T/tb auto does not have cruise control and that has the oem Momo wheel.

Cheers

my momo steering wheel has no cruise control either. Do you actually use it.

My merc and my smart have cruise control and I can honestly say I have never used it on either. The roads round here are just to busy!

Momo steering wheel

Hi,

I have changed the normal airbag steering wheel on my 2001 s-Turbo to a Momo airbag steering wheel from a 2001 wrx,

Inside of the steering wheel frame was the same as mine so i just cut a whole on the side and inserted my cruise control switch onto the new steering wheel.

Had my brother who works at an automotive electrical shop change the connectors and check airbags etc still ok and then just reverse fitted new steering wheel to column.

I think it looks great and love the feel of it.

apologies for the terrible picture. I will take some better ones and post later.

I agreed about cruise control and I have never used it on either. And will forget about it.

But the airbag connection is a problem at mo and may have to change steering wheel column wiring loom ? :icon_frown:

Right all done and fitted! I have to swapped over airbag connection ring (roll connector) from original seller of momo steering wheel.

Now all working and tested :icon_razz:

But the momo steering wheel is touching and rubbing on the plastic cowling of the steering column! :shake:

Right just to test the water. That MOMO steering is from early forester 97-00 and it touching the steering column plastic cowling cover so I've took it off and put back an original steering wheel back on for now, so I might sell it on here.

Unless someone advise me that I could extend the steering column shaft :huh:
