Default What steering wheel will fit????

I read somewhere that a Td5 steering wheel would pop straight onto earlier model 90s. Bought one to replace my skinny one on a 1989 90 Td, however the spline's are two different sizes!!!!

Is anyone aware of a more modern steering wheel to suit an older model landrover??????? or is it possible to exchange the centres in a safe way??? i dont fancy driving down the road and the wheel start slipping!!!!!

apparently a td5 defender wheel fits as a direct replacement for the older (pre-defender) nineties and one-tens.

200 and 300tdi wheels need a new steering column.

theres two types of td5 wheel, one with a raised centre used on higher spec machines and one thats vinyl covered foam with a pry-off landy badge in't middle - used on poverty-spec machines, like mine.

guess you've bought the latter. it'll fit

Cheers for that, that makes more sense, at least he didn't lie to me with regards to it being off a Td5!!!!

On the qt services website it shows the higher spec wheel fitting the same boss as the old skinny wheel, and the pry - off badge type Td5 wheel having a seperate boss!!!! so i have purchased the latter so now i need to buy a new boss kit as explained to me earlier. Cheers for the help all.
