Yes coding is required as I added a new steering wheel control module. It's not as simple as reading the data on the 997.1 module and writing to the 997.2 module. I can't recall what it was called but when a car arrives to a dealer from port they have to go through a series of programming operations as part of PDI. My dealer basically had to reboot and go through this operation. Sounds complicated but it took less than hour.

Note- this process was requried to enable mulitifuction controls. If you do not have MF its plug and play.

Thanks I love it, all it needs now is some deviated stitching, maybe a white ring @ 12oclock and added additional thickness.

Looking to possibly do this... did you have to add an adaptor or something to make the horn work? Thanks

^Do you have a MF wheel or plan on adding functionality that is currently not on your car?

If the answer is yes, then you need a 997.2 control module. As far as the horn, no.

love the new wheel.. i see you prefer the 997.2.2 wheel versus the 997.2.1 wheel (09/10 had silver plastic center, later had black plastic)

i think the all black looks better..

Can you PM me how much it cost to do all this? I am considering doing this, I currently don't have MF and would like to add that along with getting a more modern steering wheel.

Thanks!!

A bit of a thread resurrection here!

I am attempting to fit a 997.2 steering wheel (the same as eurotom's) onto my 997.1 - I have a multifunction wheel and appropriate airbag and I am just trying to understand how it all goes together before I attempt the fit onto the car.

When I slide the airbag into the wheel, it locates as it should within the wire frame which springs back around the lugs to secure the airbag, and the two springs are in place and exerting some pressure on the underside of the airbag unit.

What is concerning me is that when I press the airbag as if to activate the horn, the airbag is stiff to push and then will not return easily back into place afterwards. Its almost as if the two springs under the airbag are not powerful enough to return it to position.

I have ensured the little wiring loom is sitting in its groove and I don't think anything is fouling!

Does anyone have any ideas? or could anyone explain how the horn is supposed to work on this type of steering wheel?

thanks

All these steering wheel posts makes me depressed. I still have the skinny boat size 997.1 (2008) steering wheel and it feels terrible but $3k for this mod keeps me from pulling the trigger

Here's the cure for your depression for significantly less than $3K.

You keep 100% OEM plug and play capabilities and just trade in your core wheel. I've got one and love the design and feel, excellent leather quality at a fraction of Porsche prices.
