cool Xh Panel Van

I have a problem,
the pv is unregistered and in getting a roadworthy the engineer said the steering wheel is too small [its in QLD] it has a momo without airbag.
in sourcing a wheel at wreckers they say it should have an air bag.
Does anyone know if an XH PANEL VAN was available with or without an airbag, as if it has to have one fitted I think go berserk, its had several rwc's before with the momo
Please can someone help.

Re: Xh Panel Van

You could have an airbag on XH's, S pack and above but I suppose it may have been an option (no S pack or XR pano's). Mine has the EF/EL airbag wheel, but that is because of the cruise control switches, it doesn't have an airbag. Check to see whether there is other airbag "stuff" there, there may be some info in the owner's manual or try a Gregory's.

Re: Xh Panel Van

Xh panos didn't have the airbag standard. As outback_ute said ones with cruise control had the airbag steering wheel with an empty hornbar. Ones without cruise were fitted with the same three spoke wheel as the XGs

Re: Xh Panel Van

I had a 1997 XH Pano, it had no cruise, but it did have airbag and horn in middle of the steering wheel, but it was an ex divvy van so that may be different.

Re: Xh Panel Van

yharry is it a ford MOMO?
It would have to be to go onto the XH.
Just hold the old wheels up against the MOMO to check the size.

Re: Xh Panel Van

ok I have measured it and it is 350mm x 340mm, sorta squoundish at the bottom,
I don't know how big a normal wheel is and this van has had this wheel on it since we bought it, thanks EBXR, I'm not after another, just wanted to get past the rwc, then I think this momo goes back on,
outback_ute is yours an XH?
