why not just buy a used steering wheel from ebay. Its maybe $50 bucks. There are some in the classified section too from people parting out their cars.

I have the one I took off when I installed my wood wheel. Its clean and nearly perfect since it was nearly new then. $70 if you want it.

BTW, its from a 2001. Therefore it is thicker and more comfortable than the ones originally on the 1998 models.

Will fit but airbag won't work for a 98 - IIRC the air bags are different.

Flat_six I'll take that steering wheel off of you. Is it a leather wrapped one?

Yes it is leather and granite (light grey). Interesting to note that I had a 1998 XC70 wood wheel on my 2001 for a while before I found the 2004 wheel thats in there now. I didn't have any issues with the airbag - so not sure about that compatibility concern.

98 is a single stage air bag. 99+ is a two stage. If you used the original air bag that came with your car then it won't care. But if you install a 98 airbag it should kick on the SRS light.

Can you pm me a photo- I'm serious about buying it.

Wait what? I wasn't sniping you Gary, it didn't sound like you wanted the wheel. So did you buy this wheel? Because if not, I want it.

And Steve please do explain how you're getting the 01+ wheel to work in a 1998 or earlier model? They don't match and the air bag won't work. It's a 2 stage vs 1 stage system.

Yeah I saw the same thread Steve. It's definitely not plug and play and even then if I recall correctly, there was no verification that the airbag would actually work.

I just wanted to report back that the seller lied about the wheel being "near perfect". I pulled the wheel out of the box to find that it was in fact absolutely perfect. ;) Thanks again and hope to install it soon.
