Steering wheel options
So I have a 2001 M49 Berlingo and the steering wheel is falling to bits. I want to replace it. M49 parts are made from unobtainium it seems, so I think I might have better luck with an M59.. 

I was wondering if the M59 wheel fits (and if so, what about the airbag?).

Alternatively, does anyone know the spline size/count of the M49 column, so I can perhaps get an aftermarket 'boss kit' and steering wheel (and do an 'airbag delete'). Before anyone freaks out about 'deleting an airbag', I live on a small island with no permanent police, and a top speed of 50km/h.

I would rather a newer wheel WITH airbag, but am willing to settle for an aftermarket wheel without.
Not sure if it's the same part as on the M59? If it is, there are a few options that you can find by a quick search or 2 on here.
Can you post a picture of your steering wheel?
Also, maybe the part numbers will be the same or give some clues:
I have attached the photo of my factory steering wheel, in all of its glory.

Citroen Xsara? That would be the donor vehicle which the van was based on for an M49, and I expect since the M59 was a facelift (based loosely on the 306 platform) then it "should" be compatible, but I think since that is a much nicer wheel than the big fat M59 one, I'd look for a Xsara one or a 306 and see what's out there.
Not a Citroen!
