Losing power to steering column controls

Hi,
Looking for some advice before i start pulling things apart, i have a 2006 1.9 tdi leon with which i am intermittently losing power to the steering column controls on (indicators, wipers and horn) is there a known issue with a block connector running to the steering column? I cant seem to see any such problem on any other post.
The power loss does not appear to be vibration or heat induced as it can come and go while on very smooth surface and at different stages of a journey (startup and when everything is warm)
Because it seems like such a delicate connection failure im anticipating it being difficult to find. just looking for any advice before i start tearing stuff out, it would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you for your time
Kevin

I dont know if seat are similar to other manufacturers but some have a input module (on Vauxhall they call it a CIM) that gives the problems you are having.

There is a steering wheel control module under the steering column that controls everything you are having problems with my guess this is either came slighly lose as it clips in and is then held in place with one screw or it is faulty.

You need to remove the steering wheel and then pull apart the plasic around the steering column to gain access to it. It you go to vwvortex and look at the MK5 Golf sticky for retro fitting a MFSW it will give you a guide on how to remove it.
