I am in need of an 'early' steering wheel for a 116.

By early, I mean small diameter.

Must be in decent condition. (not worn)

Thanks

Does anyone have a spare steering wheel (small diameter) in decent condition?

Michel, you may be searching for something that doesn't exist, as I cannot think of a small Mercedes steering wheel until after the the W126's.

You may have to go to one of the 'pearl finish' steering wheel makers and have them modify a standard W116 wheel to a smaller diameter.

I assumed that Michel was referring to the smaller diameter of the splined shaft and the corresponding hole in the wheel centre, not the size of the wheel itself.

Indeed... I am sorry for not explaining that I was referring to the diameter of the spline which increased in late 1976 to a larger size.....
Thanks Gordon...;)
