991.2 multifunction steering wheel retro fit

Hi everyone. 


I have just bought a 991.2 GTS and am already after some help or advice. 


I have the sport GT wheel WITHOUT the MF buttons fitted and want to have these retrofitted into my current wheel.
 
is this possible?
I can get the parts and fit but not sure who/how to have them coded in. 
if anyone has done this or is aware please can you help
 
thanks all in advance

I haven't done this myself but, from experience adding other items to these later generation cars, I'd suggest that you will need to do two things.  Firstly, you will need to obtain the VIN-specific code that, once uploaded to the car, will effectively configure your car to recognise the extra functionality provided by the wheel.  Then you will need to have that code uploaded to the car (you will hear people talk about "coding the car") which requires a PIWIS to carry out.
 
You will find it difficult to get the Code from Porsche unless you purchased the wheel from them (in which case the wheel is sold with the Code) but these codes can be purchased over the internet from unofficial but reliable sources.  From memory the cost is around $100 per code (you will need only one).  Ping me a message if you need a contact for that.  Once you have the Code you need an OPC or an independent dealer to upload it to the car in a process that takes around 10-15 minutes only.  You will likely find some OPCs are a bit sniffy about this but others will happily do it - just ring around.

PS:  Before embarking on any of this I'd suggest that you just fit the wheel and see if it works without the coding work; I seem to recall reading somewhere of some people having full functionality (other than wheel heating) without any further action being necessary.

Watching this thread - have exactly the same problem. Not having the multifunction buttons just feels like a terrible omission on what's ostensibly a 'road car'.
 
What parts do you need? Do they just screw in? Where did you get them?

drop me a DM and I’ll talk you through what’s needed. 


easy to retro fit. But then need to get someone to code it in

I changed my 991.1 Sports (no MF) for a 991.2 MF and heated steering wheel - winter lockdown 
 
There were errors on first restart so I cleared them and they did not recur.
 
The only coding needed was because I also changed the clockspring to allow the heating to work.
  
If I were in your position I would either replace the steering wheel with a MF version or just buy the MF button modules (available on Ebay and elsewhere) and fit them to your s/wheel. There are YT videos on this. 
 
Then fit the s/wheel (wise to disconnect the battery and wait for 5 minutes first) and see what happens.  It may just work.
 
Hope this helps. Good luck.
