    does the tc illuminate on the instrument for about 3 seconds then goes out
    soon after you put the ignition on as this will tell you if you have tc or not

    if not then you will need the specific abs unit and the switch wiring
    completing then it will work.

    ive retro fitted several and have been a success

    But my previous 53 reg Elegance did, but that had the non direct engine.

    I didn't think any of the 2.2 direct engines had TC, apart from the Signum.

    He said pre facelift so it more than likely does have it.

    Does what work? If you mean the switch to switch it off maybe, maybe not. I suggest you search for it as its been covered millions of times.
