Takes a minute to move it with a small screw driver. Look at the tabs which need to be released otherwise you might end up breaking some!

I know some who threw out their old Clockspring with Angle sensor attached and realised their mistake when it was too late!!!

Ok, finally I got time to start dealing with this.

First aim was to find connector AE3 whether there are those wires for cruise control. Electronic wiring diagram shows it belongs into the main interior wiring so I guessed they don't make those different, and they don't. Wires were there upwards from the connector.
Brown wire exists also other side (I understand it's ground one) but the blue doesn't.

Ae3 is black 18 pin connector and luckily it was even that close. For a while I thought taking whole dashboard off, but after opening/ripping that white plastic connector support, the needed wires came more accessible.
The place was too bad to use steal-connectors, and those I have may be too big for the wire itself, no contact occurs. Soldering was the option, I cut with sharp knife the cover off from the side the new wire came.

I did not have more time now so I wanted to know if it anyway will work.
Those blue/brown will be spiral cable connector's E10 pins 1 and 2. And on basis Ewd, they turn blue->red, brown->black into the cruise control switch's wire.
Connecting these temporarily after reinstalling battery showed some cruise

Some problems with clutch pedal switch. I assumed it could be installed easily but the place is tricky to access.

Could someone who has factory cruise control and manual gearbox provide a picture of the area?

It would help before I start take off any components that seem to be on the way.

Changing spiral cable seems not to be necessary at least in this euro base model. Somehow I did not notice earlier that there are three pins in the spiral cable connector E10. One for horn and two for cruise.
So new spiral cable is needed only if want to have audio/phone controls in steering wheel also.

I moved horn wire into same connector as new cable with cruise switch. I found old led installation cable which connectors happened to fit into the 10 pin E10 connector, blue wire into slot 1 and brown wire into slot 2.
Removal of lowest panel above pedals was needed to have good enough access to clutch. The clutch switch replaced the adjustment bolt. Wiring was there and even some plastic support to guide the wire was found.

And now can say that job finished. Cruise control fully working. Pressing switch down while speed is set will decelerate and after moment also apply brakes. Pressing clutch and brake pedal cancel the cruise.








All pictures: Cruise - Aijaa.com

To summarize, if you have automatic gearbox, you probably need only the switch. And with manual, the cruise switch and the clutch switch are needed. Addition some wiring has to be done, 2 cables about 1 meter.
