Hi,
I’m in the process of upgrading my steering wheel for my 02 V70XC and have got an R wheel from an 05 ready to go. Buttons are not compatible though. I need to find a new cage and button assembly that is compatible with my 02. Some have said the buttons have to be from an 01 or 02 (due to canbus differences) others are saying that 01-04 should be fine. Anyone know for sure?

Here is a final update for anyone who encounters the same question. Air bag and steering buttons from an 04 worked just fine in an 02. So to install my 05 R wheel all I needed was a new wheel cradle/buttons from the 01-04 series and an airbag from any P3 3 spoke wheel. Wheel feels soooo much better than the 4 spoke!!!

I just posted a how-to video in a separate post if you are interested. Not a difficult job. Just be sure to disconnect battery before starting! Be prepared for a higher level of comfort! Big difference!
