    Hello,

    i'm wanting to order some dye to sort my slightly worn steering wheel, I have a cream/beige leather interior but looking up the colour via one of those Vin reading sites I'm getting "Equipment: 204A - LEATHER - BROWN"

    if I google 204A I can't find anything but 204 shows a very brown "hazelnut brown"

    Brown? is that right? I really wouldn't call this interior brown?

    edit, found a few interior colours on W219/W211s that look the same, Kashmir Beige/cashmir Beige, java and Light Tan but I have no idea if they're the same with different names? no idea what colour codes they'll be either

    Or you could contact Royal Steering Wheels Royal Steering Wheels | Exclusive look, unique feeling and they will rebuild the wheel to the right colour with better padding etc. Huge improvement over the standard wheel and not that expensive, mine cost around £150 rebuilt with nappa leather (solid and perforated), thicker padding and thumb grips - the old wheel was thin, hard and shiny and didn't fit the overall standard of the car. Their work is faultless as I think a few others on here will testify.

    I've discovered the colour is Kashmir Beige which is the same as Java and code X30 if anyone needs it.

    I did consider using them to rebuild my wheel, but if I was going to spend money rebuilding one I'd like to try and find a paddle shift wheel and have the car coded to work with the shifters

    This is worth remembering. Wish I'd even thought about this for my w203 when I had it for 6 year. The steering wheel was the worst bit by a mile, all shiny with missing leather coating. For £150, it sounds like good value.

    I ordered some of the dye/restorer and I've done my gearknob and steering wheel, both I removed from the car thanks to KillerHERTZ's video. Some of the stitching was comming away on the right side of the wheel which my partner has sorted out for me (tried to get her to restitch the whole wheel!) First gave them both a deep clean using an all purpose cleaner, magic sponges and microfiber cloths.

    Before:

    All fitted and finished. looks a little off in the photo but it is a perfect match (ignore the horrible winter rubber floor mats!)

    That's a top notch job, looks great. Would be interested in where you got the dye/restorer. Wife's landy needs some freshening up.

    the dye is from the Furniture clinic's ebay page and it was £9.95
