Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

I recently purchased a Type S wheel but the part of the wheel that slides onto the hub is a slightly smaller diameter than the stock wheel was.

Anyone know why its a different size?

Also Is there anyway to make this wheel work on my car?

ANY info is appreciated

Re: Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

I installed a Type S wheel in my 2000 type SH, and it fit perfectly. Can you provide pics of the differences? If you have a 4th gen, then the wheel WILL NOT FIT/WORK

Re: Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

Forgot to mention my car is an 01 base model.

Any idea if the 97 ludes had different size hub?

i looked up part numbers and the 97 has a different number for the steering column assembly. 98-01 is the same tho

Re: Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

Well here is a pic of mine. The Type S did not come with cruise. I did not want to loose mine. Luckily I was able to get an EDM one from a PreludeUK member.



EDM cruise switch






USDM wheel rear


JDM wheel rear



The Type S, Type SH, and the BB8 (4WS) models came with THREE notches on the wheel (for the wheel position sensor for the ATTS or 4WS computer). So it appears your wheel is from a base model and not a Type S.

Re: Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

That steering wheel I believe is from an Orthia 2.0GX Aero not a Prelude.
photos [ tradecarview ]
Japanese EPC shows 06770-S30-N80ZA for the airbag, but the pictures do match. Can't see anyway to search by part number so no real way to confirm exactly what car it came out of. Would explain the different steering column though I guess.

Re: Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

Well they do basically look the same. Thing is though that the Orthia was based on the 6th gen civic, which I thought was compatible steering wheel wise, like you can use an EK9 wheel can't you? Or maybe it is just the later EP3 which is compatible.

Like I said the EPC shows a different part number for the airbag, but the wheels do at least visually match. Also found a Japanese listing for an Orthia airbag that mentioned both part numbers though. Are there any other part numbers visible, like for the wheel itself?

Re: Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

i found a few numbers engraved on the wheel on the metal frame.

on the inside by the right screw hole for the airbag it says ST7

by the hub and the left hole for the clock spring is L26X

on the back its got L23 above the right side opening for the clock spring and S30 on the left.

on the back plastic piece its got the little circle with 96 97 98 99 00 the arrow is pointing to 98 on the left side. that rules out the it fits a 97 prelude theroy unless the piece was switched. I did not notice that before

on the right side is the same circle thing for the month the arrow points to 7

also says S30 HONDA >PP< right below it.

ive got pics if they are needed.

hope this helps

Re: Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

Was more thinking along the lines of a complete part number like 78501-S30-A71ZB which is the part number of the Orthia wheel.

Even without the part number looks like it is a wheel from a 1998 Orthia 2.0GX Aero. Must be quite rare at least since I think that was the only model that got that wheel.

Re: Type S Steerng wheel HELP!!

Since the item was not as advertised you should have NO PROBLEM getting a refund from Paypal.
