As per this thread <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117088" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117088</A> I'm looking for Volov badge that's located on the steering wheel of our cars. From what I can tell, it's on the steering wheel of most, if not all late model Volvos. The problem I'm having is that I can't order this from Volvo. It comes affixed to the airbag, and if I want it, I'm looking at buying an entire airbag. So it looks like my only option might be to find one from a Volvo that has been in an accident with the airbag deployed. I've already checked the yards around here, and struck out.<p>If anyone can help me find one of these, I'll be willing to compensate you for your time and whatever it costs to get the badge to me. Any takers?<p>Here's what I'm looking for, from the middle of the steering wheel.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.caradvice.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2007/12/tc-xc70-steering-wheel.jpg" BORDER="0">

If you are willing to go to great lengths to get an airbag for the logo here: <br><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.ca/VOLVO-S40-V50-2004-2008-DRIVERS-SIDE-AIRBAG_W0QQitemZ270354808620QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories?hash=item270354808620&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1215%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.ca/VOLVO-S40-V...A1318</A><p>It's located around my area but damn is it expensive.

Yeah, I'm not that willing. There's gotta be a totalled off Volvo somewhere that somebody knows of, and doesn't mind grabbing the logo off of to make a quick buck, right?

Re: (mofolicious)

that logo is clipped into the steering wheel. I just tried to pull mine off to paint it because the chrome is chipping away, and theres little claws that go into the steering wheel. Thus i did not for fear of the steering wheel blowing up in my face. lmao.

Another idea you can try is making a custom Vinyl of the logo and slap it on some type of plastic and glue it onto the grille. Just fine a good quality picture of the logo online and bring it to a custom decal or vinyl shop.

Re: Looking for a favor from a Swedespeed member (mofolicious)

What do you need it for? A badge to place on the outside of the car? Maybe this, if modified, will work just as well:<p><A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/Volvo-C30/Wheels-&-Lugnuts/Volvo-Iron-Logo-Center-Caps/p-81-757-3203" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com/Volvo-C3...-3203</A>/

Re: (chromecarz00)

Why not go through a parts car like the ones on this site?<p><A HREF="http://www.vandsautodismantlers.com/volvo_new_arrivals.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vandsautodismantler...s.htm</A>

Well looks like I might be SOL on this one. I'm told this piece gets destroyed when an airbag deploys. I don't have any wrecked Volvos anywhere near me to check for myself. <p>I guess I'm going to have to give up on this one. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (sanatarium)

I have a spare steering wheel (yeah, yeah, wtf, right?). When the dealer put on my sports steering wheel, I kept my original. I don't have it with me right now so I'm not sure if the emblem is there, but I'd be willing to sell it.
