To replace clockspring:
Remove round plastic covers on back of steering wheel to remove the nuts holding the airbag.
Remove and unplug airbag.
Unplug connector in front of steering wheel.
Mark position of wheel against shaft with paint pen.
Remove steering wheel nut and use puller to remove wheel.
Remove lower portion of steering column (screws)
Unplug wires at ignition and remove ignition switch (insert key and turn CCW while pushing in pin, then pull out ignition)
Unplug connector under dash
Now you can pull out the clockspring.
If you replace with ford part, just put the new one in, but with the Dorman part I used, you will need to remove the black plastic part that slides over steering shaft behind the clockspring.
Hope this helps.
