Ford Spare Parts

Went into my local ford Dealership today (wagga), and bought the xr8 intake snorkel. Just out of curiosity, I got a quote on a momo leather gearknob and matching steering wheel.

Gearknob - $140
Steering wheel, I said to him its gunna be expensive by the sounds of it and he said around $1000. My god!!

Didnt I read on here somewhere there were steering wheels going for $250? Whats the go??

Re: Ford Spare Parts

Re: Ford Spare Parts

Hillis Ford don't know the meaning of discounting, they still sell every last little bit,regardless of what it is, for as much as it was when it was brand new.It's a pain in the butt.

Tell me about it, they still get all the service, even with the prices. It sucks! Might try somewhere else and see what they charge...

Would I just get them to send one down or something? Got a phone number?

Re: Ford Spare Parts

No no,

what you do is take the airbag off (it screws off) the wheel you've got now. Then you just put the new wheel on and your old airbag back on top of it (it'll fit). You can do it yourself but the screws are a real prick because theyre a special type, and the tool to get them off is $60 from Ford (so $120 @ Hillis).

So yeah, just get BG to send the wheel to you, and get Ford here to put it on for you, or a mechanic if you mind one who has the right tool.

Re: Ford Spare Parts

Sweet thanks back2thefutura. I might get Hillis to fit it for me. I wonder how much they would charge to fit it. Cant be much, surely??
