This is what a spiral cable assembly looks like - it lives under the steering wheel and passes the electrical signals for steering wheel controls and the steering wheel air bag:

And this is what happens if the steering column turns round more than 2.5 turns because e.g. it's disconnected to work on it:

Just thought this might be useful to see. Very easily replaced, could be quite an expensive part unless you're luck and find a cheap one :mrgreen:
