the clock spring was dead while i replace the steerling guibo/flex disc.
i was naughty and spin the steerling wheel in "infinite mode" and i heard a plastic crack noise inside the steerling section.
I lost all the steerling fucntions, radio, volume etc.

Here is how i fix the teared clock spring wires. (way back to 2011)
u will need soldering iron & flux.
