Vehicles needing clockspring recentering:
Make sure the road wheels are in the straight ahead position. If a clockspring has rotated out of center, follow through with this step.
- Hold the clockspring outer housing stationary. Overturning will destroy the clockspring. The internal ribbon wire acts as the stop and can be broken from its internal connection. While turning the rotor counterclockwise, carefully feel for the ribbon wire to run out of length. Stop turning when a slight resistance is felt.
- Turn the clockspring clockwise approximately three turns. This is the center point of the clockspring.
- Do not allow the rotor to turn from this position.
