    What all do I need? The new steering wheel with the cutout for the stalk? Or can I just buy the stalk and plug it in? Cost involved? Really miss having CC in my vehicle...

    Also, Intermittent wipers, if I buy the stalk, its it just plug and play? Any additional work? Cost involved?

    Thanks in advance!!! It's getting to be a pain on longer drives, and have a week before I head to Utah, it'd be really nice to have!

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    The CC stalk will fit in a hole drilled through your steering wheel cover in the same location as factory CC. CC and wipers are plug and play on earlier 2gens.
    IIRC Sparks toyota had a kit for the CC. It came with a stalk, and a bezel to hide the drill marks.

    You'll need....stalk, steering wheel cover plate with hole, wire that replaces the one going to airbag that also plugs into stalk & clutch switch if you have manual tranny. About 120.00 in oem parts online. About 400.00 to have done at stealership. 120.00 if needing the clutch switch or 100.00 if not and about 30 minutes of your time to do it yourself. Do it. Simple and satisfying. Just undo neg cable first before messing with airbag. 2 torx bolts behind side covers is all it is. Clutch sw is just replace bolt/nut that is there with the clutch sw paying attention to pedal height. Just screw in clutch sw as far as it was before to have pedal in same spot. Need to remove lower half of dash to get ot it. Also very simple. Have no fear..........

    I got my first 4x4 in 1972...haven't been without one! I still like Chrome!
    I used the above link to install mine and it worked great. Thing is I got my stalk and wheel cover with hole at a junk yard for $10. From what I saw, they are all the same within a couple of years of your model. Camery and other Toyota cars with cruise all use the same stalk.

    The adj int wipers are super easy too. Remove top column cover and stalk has 2 tiny screws to hold it in place and just unplugs from it's spot. Just drop the new stalk right back in and pop the 2 screws in, put the cover back on and enjoy! IIRC, that was 75 or 80.00 new from online parts place.
