06 Fusion steering wheel swap

Planning to swap my Steering wheel because the original one is peeling like crazy. My question is do I have to use one with my exact steering wheel buttons(no sync or nav) or could I just swap my steering wheel controls in?

My guess would be this site being merged with the mazda3 forum on the backend and making the overall navigation of both sites tie into each annoyed enough people that they're no longer here to help.

But besides that, the core of the wheel should be the same, and more than likely you can swap controls. I'm not overly familiar with the Fusions, but the older sister's (Mazda6) wheel is that way. Actually all the Mazda wheels are that way...

2.5 swap TB adapters, alu dipstick handles, and more!

Yes they kind of threw me off as well.

And thanks I figured that might be the case.

As far as the technical question - yes, all the wheels will work - just swap in the original controls.
Be VERY CAREFUL to not allow the clock spring to rotate too much from its original position otherwise it will break. If it should happen to move, carefully rotate it to its end of travel and then rotate it in the opposite direction 2.25 turns. That is where it should rest when the wheels are pointed straight ahead.

As far as the navigation issue - right on - it is what keeps me away from this site. Plus the annoying restriction on 'searches' within 60 seconds and the 'hey I'm new here' clutter when searching for new posts.

Thanks for the information, have been looking to replace my steering wheel as well.

If anyone is tempted to use the buttons from a Nav or Sync equipped vehicle in a Fusion that didn't have either, the two lower right buttons won't function because there are 2 wires missing in the connector in the steering column.
Everything else will work however.
