Question Steering wheel - will it work in a Bravo?

Having seen some of the pics of your Mareas I can't help but notice the stereo controls on the steering wheel and think "Hmmm, I'd like those on My Bravo".

Anyone know if the wheels could be swapped and these controls rigged to work my stereo? Be a nice bonus if the height adjustment would work as well.

Have a 155HGT myself.

I'll have a think about this one today. First thoughts would be wheel tricky but possible, without airbag, but height adjustment difficult.

Bump this tonight to remind me

Lol.
The whole console pivots so it would be a big job to change the entire steering column. You may also have to change the dash as the console fits into a cutout.

I did not get a chance to open the console to check the wiring, but if you can get your hands on a scrapper it should be possible to transfer the loom across as a whole.

The wheel fittings should be similar, just make sure that the airbag is disabled and removed.

Hope this helps.

Thanks chap. I know where there are a couple but not quite in the position to do it yet.

May wait til I can get a look at a few Mareas close-up if any appear at Brooklands (House-sized hint! )
