Clock spring is just what people call it.  I don't know why, it is a plastic unit with a coiled conductive tape inside.  They probably would have recognised the term 'slip ring' better.

Yep.  Clock spring or slip ring.  You could do with a VCDS check because other things can lead to the same symptoms like connectors on the airbag circuit (or any other airbags on the van) It should have a code for the slip ring or other related codes.
