    Default Steering Wheel Controls

    Hi All,
    I have just bought a 2005 pre-facelift 1.9cdti 120bhp Vectra, it has a CD30 stereo fitted, not sure if its mp3 and dont know how to tell? I would really like to fit the steering wheel controls, does anybody know if this is possible and if so which controls do i need buttons or jog wheels, also does anyone know the part numbers for these items??

    Thanks!!

    Matt

    I thought all Vectra had steering wheel controls for the radio?
    The early ones were dreadful round buttons, but yours should have the scroll wheel and arrows

    Just what I was thinking... but the round ones aren't that bad

    Thats what I thought too, and I am sure they were on it when i first looked at it, but realised after i picked it up that they had gone, asked dealer (stealer) and hey said they hadnt taken anythin off and that the breeze never had it. Thought it was strange though as I used to have a 1.8LS which had the button type and that was a 52 plate!

    Anyone know if I can fit them, I have taken the blanking plates off of the wheel and cant see any wires behind them? Do you think mine would be full or half canbus as it is 05 plate?

    Thanks!!

    I may be wrong but dont think CD30 works with half canbus so itll be full canbus. Happy to be proved wrong though

    So where would the wiring be, I was expecting some wires to be sat behind the blanking plates, but when i removed them there is nothing there, are they likely to be behind the airbag? or will it be missing the wires altogether?

    It will have MP3 stamped on the facia (top RH corner) of the stereo if it is the MP3 version of the CD30.
