steering wheel identification

hello all, please excuse any dumb questions i may ask, im new to the impreza world as never owned one or been near one until a week ago when i decided to buy one that is in serious need of some TLC.
ok then lets get to the point of this thread.
the picture you see is of the wheel that is presently on my uk impreza turbo 2000 awd and im wanting to know what it originally belongs to as the horn in the middle doesnt work and its been put on a small button fixed to the side of the steering column cowls.



and this picture shows the hoofing great big gap with no contacts between the wheel and the storks where the contacts should be, hence the reason the centre doesnt work.



what i wanna know is, if this wheel shouldnt really be on this car or if there is an extra component that fits between the wheel and the storks to enable contact between the two so i can get rid of the button on the cowl. alternatively if anyone would want this wheel in exchange for the original wheel that should be on this car. im open to suggestions.

cheers

You have a NARDI STi steering wheel. Its from a 97 STi 3 Type R.

You're missing the clockspring - which is why your turn signals dont cancel and your horn does not work.


Aftermarket hub adapters do exist to bolt the wheel and keep use of the turn signal cancels as well as the horn



so your options.....

find an aftermarket hub adapter

or find a stock wheel and get the clockspring back in place



scroll to the bottom part of this page to get an idea of what i'm referring to

the yellow+black bit is your clockspring

thanks for the info subie, nice site btw, i now see what you mean by the clock spring, even though mine is a 98 model im sure the principal is still the same, now i know it comes as a seperate piece and not part of the storks i would probably be able to get one from my local scrapyard. thanks for the assistance.

cheers

If you're going to use a clockspring + the aftermarket non factory wheel

you will also need some kind of hub adapter

MOMO makes one but it requires modification to fit!

the Daikei hub is a direct bolt on for the turn signal/horn

shout with questions
