Not heard of it either, Corsa b production ceased in 2000, then it was the corsa C

i know the corsa b stoped in 2000 but the column started from the 2000 corsa b and went onto the corsa c, and its also on the corsa d, astra h. I could be wrong maybe the column started sooner but only on the 1.2 12/16v oh and the 3 cylinder 1.0

If it's from a later spec b then I can't see there been too much hassle fitting it to an earlier model. Unless it involves the ecu.

aparantly it just needs to know the speed of the vehicle so it can determain how much assistance the driver needs at differant speeds, so i was told anyway

cheers

Late reply but hey! I thought it was only Corsa C. Mine has it, SXi 2001 but to be honest I dont like it. You can feel it adjusting resistance as you get faster and its the second EPS (Electronic power steering) unit I have had because it keeps failing!

its comes on the late spec 1200 16v's 1.0 3 cylinders and seems to show up on other late models, its possible to fit it to a non eps car but you would really need the whole rack and have to make space to fit in the motor and extra wiring etc, it seems to be a better option then the citreon/pug electric pump but a bit more hassle to get fitted but it has been done alot of kit car builders also fit it and theres one guy on ebay that builds a eco control unit for it so that it can go on any car
