    Default Replacing cim ?

    Just after a little help, I've got my airbag light on and it's reading high resistance on circuits 1 and 2 drivers airbag, I've tried a different bag so now I'm left with the rotary switch (clock spring) as far as I can tell this doesn't come seperate to the cim ? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
    if I do need to replace the cim is there anything specific I need to know like does I need programming to car ?
    The car is a late 2004 vectra half can.
    Cheers

    you can split it from a cim, when i replaced mine i had to take the spring out of the new one and fit it to the board as they are different. you cant buy it seperately but you can dismatle one back to the board. The only problem may be the steering column position sensor which has a white ring on the boss, this may need to swapped also. Big job to do like that but should avoid the programming issue.

    I haven't tried cleaning the plugs but I'm pretty sure they won't cause the resistance faults, I will check them out though.
    Regarding stripping the clock spring from another module how simple is it to do ? I've not stripped mine down yet so haven't had chance to look.
