    Loose Stearing Wheel Control



    My Astra 2.2 has the big steering wheel controls on it. The controls for the volume up and down and source seem to be really loose at the bottom, it almost seems as though something has broken. The other side is fine.

    Anyone come across this problem and does anyone know how to fix it?

    Thanks

    I cannot remember if you can get access to the steering wheel controls by just removing the cover off the steering wheel, but I do not think you can so it sounds like a airbag off job. Remember to disconnect the battery and leave for a short while before you try anything.

    I am fairly sure there was a how to somewhere.

    Not to sure TBH, it will depend on what you find when you have a look. If it is just loose than tightening it should do the trick.

    Its a no brainer AFAIK - theres 2 different types of steering wheels to start with. One intended for stereo controls - and one without.
    Therefore u cant just fit the controls to a wheel designed NOT to have them in the first place. Fairly sure it will lack the necessary mounting points for the controls themselves.
