I'm still looking to update my steering wheel in my 1980 230G...
the steering wheel from a 126 will not work.
the steering wheel from a 123 will not work.
Has anyone actually transplanted a newer wheel to an older G?
anyone?
thanks

Sorry but you're wrong...I tried to mount these things on the steering column and although they fit, the shape of the back of the steering wheel is so deep that you cant turn the wheel...it's blocked by the instrument cluster housing...
I've got both these wheels and tried them both...no go.

It's propably because you have the old-style wiper stalk/steering column with the horn on the end of the wiper stalk.

Hi Iver460,
In fact I do have that...what can I do to change this? Is the newer column longer or something?
thanks
George
