Another alt steering wheel post

Post by toyclean »

Hi all

I've read a lot of posts about replacement steering wheels but can't find the answer I need. I've seen a Golf gti 1988 steering wheel for sale on ebay and it gives the spline size as 42T. I have a 1989 van and I wonder if anyone knows what the spline size for that year is. I've seen 1989 referred to as a crossover year so perhaps I'll need to measure something. That's the next question, what does 42T refer to in terms of measurement? Is it just a mm diameter? And what's the 'T'?

Hope someone can help.

Could just be saying "42 splines" - T for teeth...?
