How do you Install a Clockspring??

If you search for Clockspring you come up with a lot of open ended threads. I have determined that I have a Clockspring issue, no horn, no cruise, and the airbag light is on, but I don’t see any info on how to change it. I am a pretty good shadetree mechanic, but a little nervous when it comes to messing with airbags.

How about some detailed instructions including pics to take the column apart and change the springs?

BTW... its on a 02 with an auto tranny.

Pretty sure its like any other vehicle where you have to have a puller to get the steering wheel loose. be sure to mark the wheel so you know exactly where it goes back on. unplug all the connectors from both sides and unbolt and remove the bad CS. Re-install in reverse order.

You can do it yourself but,I do not recommend it.The Supplemental Restraint System HAS to be disabled!You can do this by dis-connecting the negative battery cables,isolate them and allow the system to completely dis-charge,usually 15 minutes.The drivers side air bag will have to be removed,I think 2 or 4 fasteners from the back side of the steering wheel.The steering wheel it's self must also be removed,you will need a puller.Be sure not to damage any of the air bag connections!All restraint system wiring will have yellow connectors and yellow wire coverings.The system will have to be taken to a service facility to have the trouble codes cleared for the system to work properly.DO NOT!!!!! turn the steering wheel! DO NOT!!!remove the clock spring retainer until the clock spring is mounted and you are ready to reassemble.After assembly is complete then and only then re-connect the negative battery cables.You will have an air bag warning lamp on but,the horn and turn signal functions should work.

Just FYI,I've been in the auto body repair industry for over 17 years and I do not recommend that you or anyone else who is not properly trained do this type of repair....a mistake with air bags cannot only kill you it can be extremely expensive!

Well the good thing is I have already met my medical deductible for the year via an atv wreck! Thanks for the info.
