Will this M-Tech II steering wheel fit my E34?
Posted 03 August 2012 - 02:06 PM
- How do I remove it from the car, what tools do I need?
- Will it fit my E34, 1995 car with airbag steering wheel. I know I can delete the bulb to stop the airbag warning, but will it actually fit somehow?

I had to transfer the top half of the column along with the wheel to fit the one in my airbag-equipped 540. From memory the airbag wheel is held on with a bolt while the M-tech II uses a nut. That was an E34 to E34 swap though.
EDIT: I've just had a look & mine is actually the earlier M-tech I wheel so the above info may or may not be of any use!

The later E34 (facelift) used the same spline as the E36 so that is the actual one you will need...
The biggst issue you will encounter will be the fact your horn wont work... But I have found a work around for this involving an earth strap that you can pick up from most motor factors
When you remove the airbag from your current steering wheel be careful (disconnect your battery) as someone I know set one off by accident whilst removing it... Although this is unlikely but safetly first!
If you have any specific questions then leet me know as I have done exactly what you are about to do
