I think the indicator comes as part of the whole unit inc lights etc and the steering wheel needs to come off.

Re: it probably does but Im just checking

i'd imagine you could get them off without taking the steering wheel off, by removing the shroud (bottom half)

Re: it probably does but Im just checking

Dealer fitted and supplied. However it is not working at present. I have an early mjet sporting and it is not registering the fitment. So stage 2 is to source and fit a new body computer from a car with cruise to hopefully pick it up.

Not sure I would try this again it could be an expensive solution!!

If and when I get it working I will post a thread.

The Stilo cruise was a doddle by comparison
