Default 2013 Accord LX-S Steering Wheel

I am looking to replace the stock plastic steering wheel on my 2013 Accord LX-S to a OE Leather wrapped steering wheel. My discussions with the dealer and a salvage yard lead me to believe the 2013 Accord EX-LS stock steering wheel will work. The part # for this leather wrapped wheel is 78501T2AU51ZA. Can anybody confirm this. My dealings so far have not provided me with a definite answer. Thanks

That (78501-T2A-U41ZA) is the leather wrapped steering wheel part number for models equipped with leather. Should work, as long as the left and right garnishes with the audio remote and cruise control buttons fit.

The critical part in replacement of the steering wheel is properly waiting several minutes after disconnecting the negative battery before starting removal due to the airbag, and not damaging the cable reel. Also do not re-use the torx mounting bolts for the steering wheel air bag.

According to acurahondapartshub.com 41za is the stock plastic (they call it graphite black)
wheel and 51za is leather. I confirmed this with the dealer. 51za does not cross with 41za for the LX-S. Maybe not an option for me. Thanks for your help.

78501-T2A-U41ZA was a copy typo as I was comparing the LX-S steering with the V6 EX-L, which is7 8501-T2A-U51ZA. I was toggling back and forth between the 2 model parts diagrams and inadvertently copied the LX-S steering wheel part number.

For the most part, it looks like it will work.

Another option; but, is labor intensive, is to just get a leather steering wheel cover that is similar to the stock leather one. They do exist; but, requiring hand-stitching the wrap around the original steering wheel after removing the airbag and plastic garnishes. Removal of the steering wheel is not required with this alternative option. -- I have done this to a previous generation Accord before.
