  • Product Description
  • Product Options
Mud UK Moto-Lita Steering Wheel Kit for:
  • Land Rover Defender
The Moto-Lita name is one synonymous with quality. During the companies 50 year history Mota-Lita handcrafted products have been selected for use as original equipment in some of the worlds finest motorcars including Aston Martin, AC, Shelby Mustang, Austin Healey, Caterham, Jaguar, Jensen, Lister, Lola, TVR, and Rolls Royce.

Each Moto-Lita Steering Wheel comes finished with a hand stitched leather rim featuring a rubber underlay for an improved tactile feel. One spoke features the engraved Moto-Lita signature.

The 380mm/15in size diameter Moto-Lita wheel provides a larger diameter option than the majority of other aftermarket wheels whose maximum diameter wheel size is 14in/350mm. Crucially the 15in Moto-Lita wheel looks and feels right at home in the Defender. If you're looking for that little bit of extra room under you knees, we recommend the 15in Moto-Lita wheel.

Moto-Lita steering wheels and their bosses are not interchangeable with any other type of steering wheel or boss, eg: Momo, OMP, Raid, Mountney etc. Please note that Moto-Lita steering wheels are not a mass-produced product. All Moto-Lita wheels are handmade to order.

Moto-Lita Steering Wheel Bosses
Moto-Lita steering wheels will not fit straight onto your existing steering column. In order to fit a Moto-Lita steering wheel or indeed any other aftermarket steering wheel onto a Land Rover you will also need an adaptor or 'Boss' kit.

The Boss suffix numbers refer to the number of splines on the steering column shaft. If you're in any doubt as to which boss you require or you're maybe looking to upgrade your existing aftermarket steering wheel with a Mota-Lita wheel then the only 100% accurate way to tell which boss you need is to remove the steering wheel. With the steering wheel removed you will be able to accurately count the splines on the end of the column.

What steering wheel boss?

The narrow rimmed four spoke steering wheel was used on the earliest vehicles up until and including the 200Tdi models.

If your Land Rover Defender is fitted with this kind of steering wheel select a 36 Spline Boss in either polished or black finish.

The padded two spoke steering wheel commonly referred to as the 'air-bag wheel' (despite it not actually having an airbag fitted) was introduced on Td5 models in high-spec trim. This steering wheel continues to be used on the very latest 2.4 and 2.2 Tdci 'PUMA' engine Defenders. This wheel was also used on North American Spec (NAS) D90 models and the 50th Anniversary V8 90s.

If your Land Rover Defender is fitted with this kind of steering wheel select a 36 Spline Boss in either polished or black finish, unless it is a Tdci / Puma. If your Puma Model Defender is fitted with the this type of steering wheel then theoretically it could be fitted with either a 36 or 48 spline column. Later models seem to have standardised on the 48 spline column, but fitment appears to be random. Unfortunately if you have the airbag wheel on a Puma model Defender there is no guaranteed way to tell which boss you will require. The only way of knowing which boss you require is to remove the wheel and count the splines on the column. To remove the wheel, remove the centre pad with a sharp tug. This will reveal the nut securing the wheel to the column. Loosen the nut, but do not undo the nut all of the way. Pull on the steering wheel rocking the wheel at the same time to loosen it from the column.

The two spoke steering wheel was introduced on the 300Tdi models. This steering wheel was also fitted to the Td5 models and continues to be used on the very latest generation Defender in base trim specification.

If your vehicle is a 300Tdi, Td5 or Tdci PUMA fitted with this type of wheel select a Boss 48 Spline Boss in either polished or black finish.
