I've managed to find genuine cruise control buttons and airbag,
So I'm selling the makeshift buttons including all the resistors and wire, this means only the 2 wires have to be linked up and the other switch fitted as normal, I will also include the surround that's been cut so you don't have to cut yours...

See pics below,

Offers please, needs to go as I want the money to pay for the airbag I got.

Thanks Joe

Change tha makeshift control over to the genuine Renault ones, And changed the airbag.. Used the ribbon wire that's already there, it's 7 core so 2 were unused, fairly easy job, just some tricky soldering with the ribbon wire being so small....

Any interest in the control I used previously as it's no longer needed??

Cheers, Joe

They start at £120ish for a Chinese one off the Internet else you can get Renault or other auto electrician to sort it, would take them 10 min :-)

J*sus lol! Your are ambitious lol...fair play for a small fraction of the cost.

Raise my glass to you, regardless of the roughness.

i have been reading the whole of this topic and the other ones on other forums.

i am looking to do this mod asap and feel confident i can do it :)

wanting to do it as simply as possible and on a german site there is the guide where you use the existing radio controls, so no need to buy another and fit on the other side of the steering wheel.

i am confused though by a couple of things.

on the german guide, he has made a little connector block with new wires and resistors coming out of it (what is this called?!) and how do i make the wires stay in this connector - so i understand that bit and you end up with 2 wires, a blue one and the combination of the resitors as the other.

he simply swaps out the connector block thats already there for the radio for his new one - so i get this too

but then, when connecting the cables under the steering wheel, he uses snap on connectors (brilliant! no soldering) but i cant work out which cable is connected where!

there is the new cabling which has a blue cable and the trio cable, but i cant gather from the pics which is which :conf

link is here - post https://meganeboard.de/viewtopic.php?p=167127#p167127

can anyone help?

would be greatly appreciated, i have followed the guide here but think the german one is a little tider

regards

Sean

i have just checked behind my panel before ordeing the parts needed and noticed that i do not have the white ISO plug behind the facia.....

Is this already there if you are able to fit the CC or is it fed through from somewhere
