930S Steering Wheel Info Needed

After 2 years of looking for a 930S steering wheel with mono-colored crest I snagged a brand new one. Installed it in the Gray Ghost and immediately broke off 2 of the cheapass plastic tabs that hold the horn button to the metal horn ring. Words cannot describe (well maybe they did, I'll have to ask the neighbors) how POed I was about this. You think they would have metal tabs.
Anyway what's done is done and I need to fix it. I discovered that the cheap plastic part is removable (imagine that) so you can replace it when it breaks.
So where do I buy this plate?
I have not gone to eBay because I bought 2 hub adapters for another wheel and BOTH will not fit my car. One clearly has VW stamped on it and the other nearly fits but with enough difficulty that I know the splines are not exact.
Here are a few pictures.
Something so simple that has become such a PITA. I'm seriously thinking of selling this wheel once I get it fixed.








Now question #2, where do I get the CORRECT hub for a MOMO wheel that will fit my car? I have the wheel and 2 hubs that are not correct. This is the wheel I would like to use once the 930S if fixed and gone. It has a Porsche crest and came with this hub attached. 944 or 928 maybe? Are they different?




Any and all help is appreciated. THANKS!

Fvd sells it, I have a spare if you need. Formel repair kit. I believe it's actually a 968 item.

Brian, you can buy the correct hub from our host. From the looks of it, you have an Atiwe wheel with the split bottom spokes. Pelican sells the Formel wheel with a different bottom spoke. However, the hub they sell will work on your car.

Now, the plastic plate is a little harder to get as I don't think Pelican sells them. Instead, you need to get them from FVD Brombacher. FVD Brombacher Online Shop - INTERIOR → Spare Parts → Steering Wheel → Accessories

Also, be mindful of those three screws with the black little spacers in your first picture. Careless unscrewing will unleash spring loaded screw fury all over the cabin and leave you wondering what the hell just happened…

Sounds like you learned that one the hard way, ha! No I'm not going to unscrew the horn mechanism.

Thanks all for your help I'll give Brombacher a call on Monday. The search engine does not work properly on my computer as I searched there earlier and did not find the repair kit. I also saw a horn button for my MOMO and now cannot seem to bring it back up.

One curiosity is this wheel has an offset hub. When I first installed it and turned the wheel it looked really weird as the entire wheel moved down as I turned it to the left or right. I finally figured this must be for tall people who cannot easily get into the seat with a normal wheel. Is this correct?

The offset allows you to see all of the gauges.

Yes that's the culprit. You think for $600+ they could make this out of METAL.

I must be lucky because I have removed mine many times and it has not broken yet. It is still a very nice steering Wheel and the grip is much thicker than a momo or personal I found. I really love mine. Be careful if you remove the horn ring (depending how thick the socket you use to install it is), because the screws are easily stripped. I had to tap mine for bigger screws for the horn ring.
