I hope this is the right forum, sorry if it's incorrect.

I have a A-Class W169 Classic SE that has a non leather steering wheel which I do not like at all.
I have found a leather steering wheel and just want to know if it's a straight swap over.
It's used and and need to know if it's as simple of removing the old one and putting this one, or similar back on.

Yes, pretty simple - just follow the correct procedure, when detaching the airbag.
I've done it twice myself, after watching Jack at Royal Steering Wheels removing my old wheel to fit his creation :)

Thank you GLK, I'll be looking for a good 'un.

You could always have yours custom retrimmed by Jack at Royal Steering Wheels...
Thanks LostKiwi, been on their site, it's not for me.
Two week turnaround plus the cost make it untenable.

But it looks, and feel, really nice ...

Oh, and that's how it looks when you get the airbag and controls out - pic taken when I was replacing the controls three years ago, half of the interior, and the head unit, were still original OEM :shock: :

Hi,

Did you manage to find a replacement steering wheel?

The non-leather in ours is patchy in lower right corner and beginning to look a bit scruffy.

I don’t if these types of wheel can be repaired or must be replaced.

They can all be recovered, the wheel frame underneath is standard across the model range.
