    Default Column Interface Module - Electrical Contacts

    My 53/2004 Vectra 2.0T developed a ticking, crinkling sort of noise when you turn the steering wheel. I was concerned that it is the electrical contacts linking the wheel to column and it could effect the airbag. Vauxhall took it in and charged me £75 diagnosis fee only to tell me they stripped the wheel off but cannot lubricate or clean the contacts, so now I have it back with exactly the same problem, less £75.

    They advised that they have seen this on a few Vectras and that it doesn't normally cause any problems but that the only way to deal with remedy it is to replace the Column Interface Module at a cost of over £450.

    Can anyone advise any other solution to this? Unless I drive with the radio on constantly loud, I've a feeling this is going to be quite annoying. It also effects my volume buttons on the wheel (I think that's the cause anyway) which work intermittently.

    Any advice or suggestions would be very gratefully received!

    PS Is the horn easy to replace? There's so many X5 drivers on my way to work that I've worn it out and it now sounds like someone coughing.

    the horns are easy to replace.. just remove the front bumper 'skin' and they're easy to see on the end of the chassis legs....

    the volume controls not working are related to the contact plate in the column, but they are right.. really to get a 100% fix it'll need a new assy..
