Here's some info on wheel compatibility.Had a bit of free time (trapped in the car with sleeping todlers) and didn't realize at the time of purchase that it was off a 04 so the electrical is not compatible. Seller was selling it as an 05 wheel so I assumed it would be compatible, really didn't know what too look out for but I knew there was a difference between years, found a date stamp on it for 2003 during install. Seller has an 05 wheel and gave me an 04 wheel by mistake, will be picking it up today or tomorrow. Oh and yeah, totally a 15min swap including the 3mins you wait after disconnecting the battery.
What to look for date stamp and electrical connector. The electrical connector for 01-04 is a female connector, 05+ is a male connector, contact reel on 01-04 has a wiring harness with a male connector, 05+ has a female connector at the contact reel. Air bag is compatible all years.
Comparison: XC70 05 wheel to 04 R wheel
Wish those hit the yards around here. I got lucky scoring an '07 R wheel this weekend, only the second R I've seen hit the 2 yards nearish me in the last year. Wish they'd have let me keep the airbag, ugh. I've never seen a sport wheel there. Though it's rare to see a post-facelift P2, and when there is one, it's almost always an '05.Go for the sport wheel. There's one at Cookstown the last time I was there.
I AM all about that silver trim with the OR...just got a set of dash vents for it too In my case, an '07 wheel onto an '06 should be simple once I find a good airbag. Bigtimemcalpine will just need to find those early controls for his car if he does a swap.In addition to the girth, like Antherzoll was saying, they also have swanky perforated leather and sexy silver trim at the bottom spoke. But I've only heard this in legends…
Yeah, it’s an 07+ thing like the stalks. That being said, if you want the silver trim on your buttons, I literally last night just took delivery of an 07 wheel to put on my 03. So, those super nice silver buttons won’t make it in my car.Here's mine
Apparently some come with silver trim on the buttons... Mine did not
That’s either an 05 or 06.What year is this one?
