Advice & help needed - 147 1.9 JTD 2002

AR 147 JTD 1.9 2002

I need several thingysm so any help and/or advice will be beautiful

1. I have GTA's steering wheel without volume buttons. Is it possible to buy one with buttons and connect it? What connectors do I need to have and do I have to connect them to ECU.
2. Related question to previous one. I have airbag in my steer and found one used without airbag but it has buttons - can I combine or i have to go to more expensive trip, to buy full steer?
3. I crave, but really crave for cruise control. I do long trips very often and it could be life-saver. I've read somewhere to look under the steer's plastic to check if I have white connector which I don't. Do I have to connect it to ECU and how?
4. Last question for now and I am not kidding. Where is my ECU?

Thank you in advance guys.

Ah, Croatia. Wonderful place.
Ok, I think the steering wheel controls are plug and play on the 147. As the steering wheels all appear to be the same, #2 should be ok.
I believe there's a thread on here somewhere about the cruise control. If I'm right then it's a case of plug and play again. eBay is your friend here. Steering wheels and cc stalks are numerous.
Ecu? Hmmm, not a clue. The twinspark one in on the throttle body but I have no clue about the jtd one!
