Fitting Momo Steering Wheel to Rev1 - Horn Problem 6 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 62
Got a Momo steering wheel to replace the massive original wheel that were fitted to Rev 1's. It looks great (thanks Cozzy90 for the elbow grease!) but needs modifying in order to get the horn working as it seems the Rev'1s had a different connection to later MR2's.

I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this problem when fitting a new steering wheel to a Rev1?

I couldn't find much else online about this, only one related thread on MR2OC:

I thought all rev's had the same horn connections on the stalk but I can see in that link you posted they clearly don't.
Where does the horn connections go to since the earlier ring doesn't have the separate horn connections?
Could you not hook up two wires (live and earth)to the connections, its hard to make suggestions without seeing how it was taken apart.

you cant connect wires to it as you wouldnt be able to turn the wheel without ripping them off id say you would have to update the center of the steering colum with a rev 3 one

Would that be easy to get a hold of and replace though? I've seen boss kits specifically for rev1's on ebay, I wonder would they make any difference.

I may just put the old one back on when NCT comes around though...

Its the coil in the centre thats different but you'd need to change the entire assembley - i've one from a rev3 for sale if your stuck:

Not sure what is so different about this boss kit but apparently it will fit rev 1's only.

I took the horn ring out of my original steering wheel then glued it to a spigot ring from a set of alloy wheels and glued that to my boss to have to horn functioning on all 3 of my rev1's
