from the best i can tell, yes, i am sure the seering wheel mounts the same and it looks as if the airbag uses the same connector, but i want to make sure, i really don't want it going off if i plug it in.


SO.... ANYONE KNOW?

Id make sure you also install an 03+ clock spring with the newer air bag and wheel. As there could be problems running the 99-02 clock spring with the 03+ air bag. But im not 100% sure on that.

the splines don't line up. I tried it before. You'd have to change the whole column.

Im so happy i have the whole column out of a 03+ with wheels controls. woot!


now if i ever get around to swapping it.
we need to make this a sticky if you ever get around to doing it :crazy:
You have to do the 03+ column. Then you reuse your multi switch and everything off your old column.
what do you meen by multi switch and has anybody else on here done this before
