Fitting aftermarket steering wheel - advice

Hi all. Looking at buying an aftermarket steering wheel for my 182 FF. It won't have a central button for the horn but I'm looking to get a volantech panel (believe the other option is the stalk from a ph1?) . As my car has cruise control, would I need the 4 or 6 button panel or is it down to preference? And does anyone have a fitting guide/instructions? Or am I better off taking to a garage?

TIA

I have a Volantech panel (as you can see by my avatar) and yes you will need the 6 button panel if you want a horn and retain cruise and speed limiter.

It's quite simple to do, I am sure there is a guide for removing the wheel on here somewhere.

That thread's really useful. Thanks @Andy P.

Re parts needed, is the below everything?
- aftermarket wheel
- boss (is there a difference in ph1/2 bosses?)
- 3.3ohm resistor for airbag light

Am I missing anything excluding tools required?

It's a T50 for the steering wheel bolt I believe.

Boss, most people buy the Momo boss as I think there is a difference between ph1/2 bosses. Search on here and I think there is a thread about which is the best boss to buy.

A better solution to the resistors is if you can find someone nearby with Renault Clip to turn the airbags off.

You could actually buy everything you need apart from the resistors from Voluntech, see link below.

Thanks. Already sourced a sabelt rs wheel. Will just go to volantech for the panel I think.

Out of interest, what do each of the 6 buttons do? Top 2 horn? Mid/bottom right cruise on/off, and mid/bottom left speed up/down?

👍

Regarding the buttons that’s correct.

Basically top two are horn and the other 4 replicate the standard buttons for cruise/limiter and position they are on the standard wheel.

This is my wheel and panel, you should be able to see the markings for each button.
