Hi everyone!

I've got my car warranty over & here is the first problem:
the rudder heating stopped working.
the symptoms were like turning on every other time & then stopped working at all.

I guess that the problem is in the turn on switch or the wiring or the heating element.
Is there any guide on how to remove the rudder heating turn on button?
Any other suggestions?

My guess is "Steering Wheel Heating".

IF so, and it quit working, would a proper assumption be the switch, wiring thru the column or even a bad contact with the column's clock spring?

If those are steering wheel mounted controls and you are getting power to them,then it probably is NOT the clock spring.

But to answer your question of what it is..... It is an electrical coupling device mounted to the top of the steering column to supply electricity to steering wheel mounted controls and the SRS air bag while the steering is turned while you drive the car.

No apology necessary! Your English is better than any of our Russian!!

.. but so you can understand the joke, "rudder" is what turns a boat, or is on the back of an airplane to help control flight. So it was actually pretty funny to us English speaking members!!
