Go to the realoem site and look up 2002 steering wheel (any year). You'll see different ones for different wheels. They're all very similar from my experience.

If you have an aftermarket steering wheel, buy the least expensive one and solder a little 2" long extension wire on it and a connector that clips on to your horn button. Then either a) epoxy it into the hole your aftermarket wheel/hub or B) press fit it in to your original wheel.

easy!

I got crafty and used one to fab a spring loaded fan clutch contact on a 1962 Ferrari V12 pulley last year. (It's inside the shiny polished aluminum hand made cone in this photo) :-D

spec 2002s use the same plunger, and they don't often go bad unless you break one replacing the steering column surround pieces.

EXCELLENT INFO!

Many thanks, John! I've always used the 8mm ones and a bit of adhesive. Never tried the 3 wire 10mm one myself.

Probably just ordered the other, cheaper ones figuring I was going to modify it anyway.

Thanks to all of you for suggestions. None of the suppliers I've contacted have it, Realoem, Europart, Bimmerspecialists. Where did you get yours? Thanks, Ken

Thanks John. I'm still looking since so far no parts houses carry them. Ken
