I discovered after I purchased my 05 GTO that the volume "up" button on the steering wheel seems broke. The plastic button itself was just flopping around and didn't seem attached. (Note: the actual button itself still works) I used a small screw driver and popped out the loose button and as far as I can tell it doesn't seem broken, but I'm not positive. Any thoughts?

I'm hesitant to take anything apart steering wheel related because of the air bag.

I'll try to get a picture to better illustrate the issue if needed. Thanks

I had the same issue when I bought my 04. I seem to remember that there is a little silicone button that makes it return to the up position after you push it. Anyway I bought a new assembly from Pontiac. The airbag is not an issue if you disconnect the battery. I failed to do that and then I accidentally pulled the airbag plug and it set an airbag code that only the tech2 scanner can erase so I had to take it to the dealer and it cost me a 1/2 hr of labor for the reset. So lesson learned, disconnect battery, unplug air bag, replace switches, plug in airbag, connect battery.

Do you mind if I ask how much the dealer charged you for a new assembly? Will they sell you just the audio controls themselves?

the entire volume control buttons on the steering wheel are around $150 at the dealer. i went to gmpartsdirect and ordered them for $89 and around $22 for shipping and processing.

Nice, thanks! Question, the 06 radio controls light up, correct? They are the same price, will the 06 audio controls bolt right up to my 05?

The 06 illuminated buttons will work on an 05, but you will need an 06
clockspring.
