Steering column image request

Hey all-

Great board! Glad to see there's a place where more substantive issues can be discussed (as well as less-lofty ones) without all the ... well, you know what I mean.

I'm trying to better understand the differences between the steering assemblies between the pre-4/99 Z3s and the post 4/99 models - as well as the Ms, if anything changed for those cars.

It would be GREATLY appreciated if anyone has ETK or parts CD diagrams of the steering wheel - to - clockspring juncture. Alternatively, if anyone happens to be working in that area and can snap a few pics, It would help a lot in understanding just what's going on in there.

I haven't removed my own wheel yet - my freakin torx heads won't fit in the holes in the wheel - have to pick up a set of drivers later... I have a pre-4/99, so the post- model is the one I really need.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Assuming clockspring = slip ring

Pictures (on the parts CD) of the slip ring on the up to 4/94 and from 9/94 look the same. In the description the up to 9/94 says 4 POLIG. The from 9/94 says 6 POLIG.
