just if you have a 95 you need to get the ring set up inside the wheel from a 91-93 so electronics work right. BUt check some places its illegal to remove your airbag wheel, plus it says it on the vin plate air bag, and your insurance might shun you.

you need the Grant adaptor to bolt one of their steering wheels to your car. they list it only for the 91-93 because of the airbags, but it'll work on the newer ones too.

you'll need to use a 91-93 non-airbag horn ring if you want that to work at all. if you have cruise, you'll lose that without the aftermarket cruise button kit.

THEN to bolt the Momo wheel to the Grant hub, you'll need a $10 part thats a 5 bolt to 6 bolt adaptor. it lets 6 bolt wheels like the Momo fit on the 5 bolt hub.

I have this setup on my Pony using a Momo wheel i got from Germany, it was on an Escort Cosworth.

I have the Momo hub for the cosworth/sierra too.. should fit XR4Ti's and it looks like it'll work on the Focus.

I just used the Grant Hub for my Momo wheel. I just drilled the new bolt pattern into the Grant hub and put a M8 thread in the holes.

Took all of 15-20 minutes and I don't have to deal with the added space cause by using the adapter.

On the it is illegal to remove your airbags note. Let's say you got rear-ended your air bags "went off." Then can toy get away with putting a lcd screen in the passenger side air bag area and swapping your steering wheel. I mean you aren't removing your air bags. They did it for you.

If you get rear ended and your airbags go off, you could probably sue Ford.

The airbag sensors are attached to the front frame rails and only set off the bags if they experience a very high G acceleration towards the rear of the car.

If your airbags go off you have to have them replaced before you can re-register the car. They are not optional.

I'm no fan, but thats the way the laws go. Will you be prosecuted? Probably not.

In my opinion, the easiest thing here is just to switch the entire steering column for a non airbag escort one... then, if you have a momo steering, get the momo hub for 89-89 323... itès the only one listed, but their steering columns have not changed and that's the one I used to bolt my Champion to my 93 non airbag escort... no problems whatsoever...

airbags are a waste and just a blown out of proportion safety device

you want something that will save your life,,, its called a seatbelt wear it

airbags do crap all all they do is save the idiots who are tooo cool to wear the seat belt, if you dont wear your seat belt you deserve what you get and there will be no sympathy from me

think about this .... i have a 5 speed and two hands are not always on the wheel and the hands are definetly never at 3 and 9 oclock (like the ladys in the vans hahahah sorry that was cheap) now my left hand is at the top of my wheel (12 oclock) and hand on the knob all the sudden im in a accident airbag goes off and either breaks my arm or rams my wrist into my face messing it up

or if you are driving like a mom in a mini van and your doing a turn and hit someone bam by by arm its going to be broken

airbags have been proven to make accidents worse ie giving severe fabric burns to faces, or breaking noses, or by deploying prematurely and actually killing people,,, there is no basis to airbags save lives they do more damage then good

THERE WILL NEVER BE A PYROTECHNIC CHARGE AIMED AT MY FACE AS LONG AS I OWN MY VEHICLE

oh and about insurance, its not illegal to take out airbags, its called freedom of choice if you feel unsafe with a airbag the insurance company has no choice but what they do demand is that it is uninstalled professionaly, just tell them you dont want a explosive charge aimed at you and if they dont understand why (my insurance didnt ) just explain to them about the things i just mentioned

stop being force fed lies, we are told airbags are good, yay every car has a airbag now were all safe, did you ever stop to think what a bag exploding at speeds faster then a gunshot can do

final 2 cents

SEATBELT ITS YOUR FRIEND ----- AIRBAG ITS YOUR FRIEND THAT BANGS YOUR WIFE
