I recently purchased a used XC70 and one thing that bothered me was the peeling steering wheel trim staring me right in the face each time I drove the car. So the first order of business was to purchase a new steering wheel decor trim piece (p/n 31390457) from Tasca Parts. The Charcoal color item is no longer available but I was happy to update to Silk Metal trim. It matches the radio and ignition slot trim well. I followed the installation instructions from the Volvo Accessories website.







OEMplus upgrades help freshen up the interior. No more peeling steering wheel trim!







Volvo DiCE and VIDA needed to activate the SRS airbag and initialize the windows. These actions are needed whenever the SRS airbag module electrical connectors are unplugged and whenever the negative battery terminal is disconnected.

That looks great! My trim isn't even peeling and you got me thinking about doing this.

On another note, the more I look into doing repairs on this car the more it seems like I will have to buy one of the VIDA DICE thingys...

Looks Great. To me the the silk matches the decor better than the charcoal.
