Steering wheel controls

I bought a 2010 F350 today. It has the cruse buttons on one side and a cover plate where the radio controls would go. Can anyone tell me if I can get the buttons and plug them in ir would you have to change the whole steering wheel? Thanks in advance.

I did this. The clock spring in the steering wheel has the harness for the audio controls. If they are not there when you bought the truck, you need a new steering wheel from a model that has them. When my steering wheel started to show major wear, I ordered this one and it came with them.

But did you change the wheel or could you just put the controls in where the plug is on the right hand side of the wheel?

You don't need to change the wheel to add the controls to the wheel. The plastic pieces pop out and can be replaced with the correct controls. However, there is a wiring harness the goes to them controls, then there is the clockspring that plugs into the column harness and steering wheel harness. I'm not sure what your truck is prewired for. I just had to switch out my clockspring as the wire strip inside buckled over on itself causing my controls to stop working. I'm not sure if all clock springs are the same and have all the wires in the strip or not. Your best bet is to contact Steve redmyer. He it great at what he does. He set me up with a whole sync and nav setup. And when my clockspring broke, which I'm sure was caused by my error and spun when I took off the wheel, he went out of his way to find me a new one and paid for it out of his pocket and shipped to me without me sending him a dime and I just payed him back after I got a chance to switch out the part. I believe his user name is STEVE. So it can all be done but you need to figure out what your truck is prewired for. I would pop out the right side piece and see if there is wires prewired. I have both sides of controls I don't need since switching to sync as well.
