WTB: S/V70 steering wheel

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a cheap black/charcoal S/V70 or S90 steering wheel. Have one with torn/crappy leather? Let me know! I'd like a leather one so that I can cut off the old leather and use it as a template for re-wrapping the wheel.

I got you. It's from an 01 C70 I dismantled. Tan. 

Sorry, I'm looking for a black/charcoal one to match my 850R's interior

10-4. Thought you said you were going to cut off the old cover and recover

Problem is the part that isn't wrapped in leather (the whole back of the wheel) is tan as well. I had the same predicament when I was buying a 960 wheel. Lotta tan ones

 

Found a charcoal s90 one on the expensive side. Looks to be the only one on ebay atm.

Unfortunately, like Brad said the rest of the steering wheel will still be tan, I'd just be redoing the leather wrap around the rim.

Thanks for digging those up, I'd say that combo is a fair ways outside my price range for this little project though! Not to mention it may be difficult getting an air bag shipped to Canada... Which I should probably mention, I wouldn't need the airbag for an S/V70 wheel since I already have one I could use

Does yours happen to look like this? I forgot that some tan Volvo interiors had the same charcoal airbag and base on the steering wheel

I've got an old charcoal wheel from a 1998 V70R. It's leather wrapped with the suede inserts, not sure if that will work for you or not. The suede is worn off and the leather is not great, kind of sticky and wearing off. 

$20 plus whatever shipping is to Canada

I can get better pictures if you want.

In case you want to keep the alcantara, it might be salvageable. Take diluted cleaner and a toothbrush to it.

The fibers absorb the oils & dirt from our hands and become matted.
