is it possible for me to switch out the steering wheel of a 2000 clk 430 with the steering wheel of any w208 clk 55? the main thing i want to know is if it can be done, what will i need to do to make sure the shift buttons on the steering wheel work? or are they not compatible with the clk 430 transmission?

It is a direct fit. I have a silver and black CLK 55 steering wheel in my 2000 CLK430 and had a black one prior to that. There are no shift buttons ON the steering wheel, just buttons for Audio/COMAND/telephone, etc. Bottom line: there are no issues with buttons or anything else. Good luck.

same idea

W209 steering wheels are not interchangeable with W208 steering wheels...
is there any other steering wheel that is compatible to the w208 steering wheel then? i want to change mine as well to make it look "cooler" :) thanks!

big ty!

Performance Products has steering wheels for a W208. You'll have to swap your airbag.
big thanks master marcus, do we have DIY to replace the steering wheel though? much better to do it myself to save money
