Put a first gen Rav4 wheel in mine, looks the same as most early 2000 Toyota 3 spokes. couldn't use the airbag of course. Had to modify the cruise control switch a bit to fit it in there.

FYI:

There is a way to get the airbag to work properly using an adapter harness from toyota. Unfortunately, it is now NLA (No Longer Available). :(

The fellas over on Mr2OC snapped up the last of them to my knowledge.

Just in case though, here is the part# 09082-00760. It costs $10.67

A possible source is HERE (http://toyota.spx.com/detail.aspx?id=407&p=173&g=21)

It allows use of a high-pressure airbag on an OE low-pressure system.

I emailed them and they still make those. If I order it it'll be available Sept. 18th.

On further investigation I don't think that wire will do the trick without some cutting and splicing. The clock-spring end of it is not the same as the 5th gen. If I was going to risk doing that I would just do it to the wire on the airbag itself and change the connector to the one off the 5th gen airbag. Personally I'm just going to leave the airbag out.

You can also see how I had to hack up the cruise control switch a bit to get it in there.

Anyone know the trick to getting that yellow wire out of there? I can't get the clip off it.

Yeah, they fit. Chewdogg did this many years ago, and was the first as far as I know.

Airbags? Woah. That's some newfangled technology you're dealing with there. :P
