    Steering wheel controls - help required!

    I'm reposting this thread myself because I need some answers ASAP.

    Can I fit steering wheel controls of the factory headunit on an Astra G which didn't come with the car it as standard? Would it be too much of a hassle? Or would anyone have some instructions?

    I think the models a year after mine had them as standard on the same headunit (Blaupunkt 520?)

    In terms on mounting and wiring, does this all go behind the steering wheel cover? (ie, inside?) Or can it be done some other way? Where is the control connector anyway?

    Sorry for asking so many questions, I'm not quite sure if its done before.

    I think you'd have to pull a wiring loom through for it and change the steering wheel

    i'm not toataly sure on any of this! so don't take my word for it!

    Thinking about what signals would be needed to change the voulume etc i would think it just wire's straight from the stero to the stearing wheel! as all they would be is switch line's!!!

    It's gonna mean messing around with the airbag and all sorts, definately not one you wanna have a go at doing unless you are 100% certain in what your doing!

    Have you spoken to Vauxhall about it?
