Defender Steering Wheels

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I need a steering wheel for my truck - only problem is I can't remember age of vehicle replacement column came from and I seem to remember that they changed splines or something else between turbos and the TDi's.

Is this memory correct? if so what should I look for to discriminate?

column spline count 36 or 48, 48 spline column is much thicker & mostly fitted to 300Tdi vehicle & later non-XS spec Tdci engined vehicles, almost everything else has a 36 spline thin diameter column with the RRC style 4 spoke wheel.

300tdi, most normal spec TD5's and base spec TDCi's have the 48 spline column with this style of wheel:

<300tdi, and high spec TD5's/TDCi's have the thinner column, using either the old skool 4 spoke wheel, or the range rover style one with the big soft padded bit in the middle:

I've dismantled a 200Tdi 110CSW, 1992 model and that one did have the (narrow) column and padded 300Tdi type steering wheel. I'm pretty sure that one has been factory fitted.

But have just upgraded to Moto Lita leather :)

Cheers

Marco

Sorry to necro-post, but do the 48-spine columns have tapered splines like Series vehicles, ie do Seris wheels fit the thicker Defender columns and vice versa? Looking into it for a Series PAS conversion...
