    Question Cruise Control on X Reg 1.8 16v CDX Saloon

    Hey!

    Was wondering what I would need to get for Cruise Control for my car.

    I understand I need a stalk and possibly a clutch switch?

    How do I tell if I have a clutch switch?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Indic...2em118Q2el1247

    Would this do?

    Thanks alot!

    Steve

    nah, the how to is good. Sadly I had everything but the connector in the steering column. Best way to see if you have a clutch switch is to stick your head in the footwell and look or if you want to be dead technical about it, get a diagnostics cable, hooking up to your laptop and look in OP-COM and see if the clutch switch activates when you depress the clutch. Personally I'd opt for the first option
