6.4L clockspring removal & installation

My cruise and stereo controls quit working on my steering wheel the other day, then no horn and then the airbag light came on. The clock spring obviously wasn't transferring a signal or had a broken connection. Time to change it out. Thought I would snap a few shots since I couldn't find much info about changing it when I was looking for it.


step 1 remove tilt lever.
step 2 remove 3 screws holding plastic upper/lower column covers in place
step 3 pull on plastic dash panel and remove it
step 4 remove upper and lower column pieces

step 5 turn steering wheel to the left into the 9 o'clock position.
step 6 remove number 32 fuse, which is (red 10amp) to kill the air bag module (in passenger side floor kick panel)
step 7 remove the ground cables from both batteries (diesel truck) using a 8mm socket

step 8 with the steering wheel in the 9 o'clock position, use a screwdriver and release the 3 retaining clips holding the airbag in place, these are on the back side of the steering wheel, push these clips inwards towards the center of the column to release them, use a mirror or a shiny lighter to view clips.(see photo)

step 9 lift airbag out of steering wheel, unclip the 2 wiring connectors (airbag & horn) from the back of airbag and fully remove it for now, point it away from yourself when carrying it (see photo for 3 retaining clips on rear of airbag)

step 10 rotate the steering wheel back to the 12 o'clock position and remove the center bolt with T-50 torx socket. Remove steering wheel by pulling outwards (no puller required). remove the clock spring by removing the two T-20 torx head screws.

step 11 install new clock spring and re-install steering wheel, its now okay to pull out and remove the yellow alignment ripcord.

step 12 plug wiring connectors back in and re-install airbag by simply pushing inward firmly until all three retaining clips snap back into place and catch.

step 13 re-install plastic covers, tilt lever, re-install 10a fuse in lower passenger side kick panel, re-connect battery cables.

step 14 Your all done!!!! go relax and enjoy yourself with a beverage.
