Clock spring or what
I have heard the term clock spring, in the service manual it says if a specific test fails, replace the clock spring but tells nothing of how.
I have a ticking sound as i turn the wheel. I do not know where the clock spring is but, in reading posts, believe it to be under the horn pad. If this is the case, may not be my issue.,
Under the dash, looking at the steering column and there is an intermediate shaft with two plates. It appears to have a piece of wire that appears to be making the noise.
Can anyone tell me, what this little bugger is and why it is there?
