    Default Fit steering wheel controls

    Hi can anyone help (please)

    I have removed the steering wheel controls on my pre face lift vectra c, to clean them.
    on replacing them I am unable to get the pin connector to line up and am now starting to damage the pins.
    the connector in the steering wheel is on flexible plastic and every time I push the unit home it push the connector down inside the steering wheel.
    surely there is an easier way to do this !!
    any ideas....
    thanks

    Yes I know : painful is the word.

    I really don't want to do that again !

    I finally used a flat blade do guide the damn thing and somewhat managed to push one towards the other.

    The connector inside the wheel branch is mounted on some hard plastic foil that easily keeps a weird shape, leading to being bent and therefore not facing the cover connector anymore. It generally happens at the time you remove the cover, as it bents while you're pulling the latter out.

    Be warned that if you just push the cover in place and pray for the connectors to match, you'll most probably damage the pins... But it looks like you've noticed that already !
