Does anyone know if the Passat steering wheel will fit on the T5 too? Also does anyone know what size the splines are?

Ok, does this also include 1995 models or is there a different fitment? I tried swapping the steering wheel from a 1999 but it wouldn't fit the 95 properly?

] I tried fitting steering wheel from a seat Leon exactly the same as the passat only I couldn't get the horn to work. The slip ring doesn't have the continuous copper ring like the original so no connection to horn. I have removed the original ring from my old wheel and I'm working on how to fix it to the back of the new one. If this works it will obviously cancel indicators too.

One good thing I did find out is that a lot of the VAG cars had the adaptor pressed onto the steering column. I got one from a scrap yard of a seat cordoba it fit straight onto my small 17mm spline so saved me having to buy the adaptor from vw.

Finally made a few mods and got wheel on with working horn and indications. I had to make up a homemade boss from an old plastic tube I had laying around. Firstly I cut down the tube to fill the gap between the new wheel and the steering column. I fixed the original slip ring to one end of the tube and screwed the other end to the new wheel.

Covered the whole thing in a bit of black leather vinyl to match wheel, then I just reconnected horn wire and job done.

Made up a new decal to cover seat logo on wheel. Everything perfect. Indicators cancel and horn works from wheel.

Hello N13 LVV,

Like the 35 in the background. The city boys won't be sure what I'm on about.

One quick question did you get any play in the steering column? It appears that the spline adapter does not splay out like the precious steering wheel.

I've found a wheel on eBay and got the spline from tps last question will the horn plug in exactly the same as the two spade connectors on the old wheel?
