Needs to be a 197 wheel and airbag, and you need to 'alter' the wiring, iirc.

ive heard people having problems with the self correction, so when you go around and corner and let go of the wheel for it to turn back to the centre itself, it doesnt?? is this true?

and im not bothered about the cc i just want the airbag to work, do both wheels have to same airbag connections??

Its a straight swap as far as fit goes. The auto correction thing sorts itself out after a while, what ever is stopping it wears away after a few weeks of use.

The airbag wires dont need modifying to fit the new airbag, whether the airbag will work, no one can confidently say so.

Cruise wires need altering, you can either chop and solder, or do what i did and convert the 197 wheels cruise buttons connector to the 1*2 style.

So do i need to buy a steering wheel off a 197 or the one that is on the renault sport website?
