What type of boss do I need?
Posted 23 February 2011 - 07:01 PM
I am keen to replace the hideously ugly original wheel that came with my S3 Turbo, and would also like to experiment with a slightly larger diameter wheel to help with the unbelievably heavy steering at low speeds.
Having removed the wheel from the splined shaft, I now realise that the steering wheel and boss all appear to be one horrible cheap casting, that prevents the original boss from being used with a new wheel.
Can anyone therefore please advise what kind of boss I will need to fit an aftermarket wheel?
Do I need to go to a specialist such as SJ's, or does anyone know of another make and model of car (eg. Citroen, Ford, BMW, etc) that uses a compatible size of steering boss - there are obviously plenty available on ebay to fit these kinds of makes.
Any advise would again be very appreciated.

I have an boss with a wheel, the boss will allow you to fit any wheel like momo etc.
I will turn it out and send you a pic

It really is very simple......just incredibly complicated to explain.

Looks like I might be buying and upgrade for my car from Dave, and then selling an upgrade for an S1/2 owner straight after!
Look forward to your photo Dave.

Here is the pic as requested, I need to find the Lotus wheel Horn push which is in the loft with all my badges and trim.

Including postage to Didcot in Oxfordshire, How much would you like for the whole thing, wheel, boss and horn push?

I will turn out the horn push and PM you over the weekend.

I have a 1983 non Turbo series 3 and would be interested in purchasing your standard steering wheel if you are about to sell it .
