    What steering wheels interchange with 94 Fleetwood?

    The leather is finally starting to peel on my steering wheel. I've put a cover on it for now, but I can't stand tthe added thickness and I'm looking at picking up another.

    I remember reading that PimpInNOLA put an Eldo wheel in his.. This leads me to believe that Eldo's and Sevilles will interchange. I know Caprice/Buick/Impala would too but if I'm gonna swap out a wheel I'm going to try for something a little more exotic or different, especially since factory steering wheel control buttons would be useful for one of the projects on the Fleet.

    I guess the question is, really, how much of GM's product line is interchangeable? Any other manufacturers fit too?

    the only issue i never got to post with the eldorado wheel but its minor is the holes to mount the airbag are much smaller meaning you have to either use the eldorado airbag and bolts, which i never had or use a nylon bolt to hold the airbag in, if not the bolt touches to the wheel and honks the horn, it was a minor fix but one that has to be done if you want to use the horn

    You can use any wheel from GM before they went to the data bus info (early/mid 2000s). Some will work with air back clock spring swaps, some bags won't work. You can get steering wheel audio controls to work with research. If you want to go no bag, any older wheel will work. I use a Lumina wheel in my SS, and so does mom in her 91 Caprice in Florida:

    That's awesome.. exactly the info I needed.

    What changed with the data bus switchover? The entire column/spline, etc?

    Thanks Kevin, that would be awesome! Luminas are pretty much extinct around here, even in junkyards. If you're able to grab it, it's in good to great shape (don't want to have to put a cover on it too), and either blue or black, PM me with how much you want for it

    I will try to go over the weekend. IIRC, it was in really good shape. Hoping it will still be there. As for price...I can't promise, but I'll try to keep it under 55 shipped.

    Jay, do you remember how the horn pad comes off of those? I know GM attached their air bag wheels goofy, but I'm not sure if the lumina horns are held on with screws like the old horns or the goofy spring clips like the air bag wheels

    You just pull it straight towards you. Not leather, though. Not even vinyl. Just a foam wheel that is shaped like stitched leather. You have to cut your air bag wire off to use this wheel.

    I'd be on the lookout for a later model Eldorado wheel that was leather and wood, used the same style/shape airbag center, so it would look factory.

    I can probably get one of those too. I'll be going to the junkyard next week (today isn't gonna work out).

    thats exactly what i done in my fleetwood, takes very lite modification to fit and looks exactly like the original wheel but with wood that was never a fleetwood option.

    the hardest part is finding a eldorado wood wheel, in good shape for a decent price, hell finding them is hard enough
