Does anybody know where the hell you can get a woodgrain steering wheel for a 1997 Eldo?? I know they were only made for the 2001 and 2002 models but I'm pretty sure they are the same.

They're not the same. As a matter of fact I ran into a situation where it's a damn good thing I checked because I thought the same thing.

Guy had one on eBay I was going to buy for my 01 DTS. Well after some very very extensive research and trying to figure out WHY the part numbers were so different I got the answer.

The wheel will most likely bolt onto the car. However the airbag assembly will NOT go into the wheel unless it's for your year.

So if you're going to do a cross year thing, be careful.

Steering wheels, air bags, and bag modules are really really specific, particularly so on later model Caddies. Many junk yards will tell you they will fit. They absolutely will not. Too bad. If buying bags, make sure you buy a set with module. If your veh has side air bags, module is diff.

Sure can... but you'd have to sell yours and buy a late model one...

Guess that wasn't very helpful :banghead:

That's what I was seeing in yards AND on eBay. A LOT on eBay say fits 2000 - 2005 Cadillacs. Yeah when actually they fit ONLY a 2002 Escalade. Same wheel, different airbag.

If you have a 97 Eldorado, you can use the one off the 96-02 Eldorado only. I think you can also use up the the 96-97 STS wheel as well.

Hey CadillacSTS2003,

Just wondering if I am reading this right, for a 99 eldo if I am lucky enough to find a woodgrain wheel from a 01-02 eldo it will be a direct fit?
