Hey guys,

I have successfully installed an SS steering wheel part number 92276592 in my 2014 Caprice. It is a direct bolt on install for 2014-2017. It does have a couple extra buttons in the left switch bezel so if that bothers you, the switch from your original wheel could be transferred. It also has paddle shifters. Before I plugged this in I confirmed that the part numbers for a 2014 SS and 2014 Caprice clock spring are the same. You will need 1 or 2 small allen wrenches or picks to release the airbag and a T50 bit for the retaining bolt. No puller is required and the wheel is splined so it can only go on one way. I had mine done in less than a half hour. I really enjoy the sporty look and feel. The perforated leather matches the dash and door panels perfectly. The original wheel is in the first picture, the bottom two are the SS wheel. Let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Collin

I work at a GM dealership, I found the part number easily and bought it new. The paddle shifters much to my dismay did not work. I was hoping dropping it into L would activate the paddles, it did not. At this point, there are multiple dealerships and Lansing, MI warehouse has some of them so you should have no problem acquiring one. Let me know if you need assistance getting one.

Just got mine on yesterday, love it!!! We need to find a way to get the flappy paddles to work, im sure its some sort of coding within the TCM to tell it that "its there".

I am wanting to do the same, I emailed Chris White here on the forum, he said he didn't think it would be a problem. As many on here know he is moving his business to a new location so at least I will wait for him. If anyone else has an idea please share. :)
