Incorrect centralization may result in premature component failure. If in doubt when centralizing the clockspring, repeat the centralizing procedure. Failure to follow this instruction may result in personal injury.
Make sure the road wheels are in the straight-ahead position.
Overturning will destroy the clockspring. The internal ribbon wire acts as the stop and can be broken from its internal connection.
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
If the clockspring has rotated out of center, follow these steps to center the clockspring.
Hold the clockspring outer housing stationary.
While turning the rotor counterclockwise, carefully feel for the ribbon wire to run out of length and feel for a slight resistance. Stop turning at this point.
Turn the clockspring clockwise approximately 2-1/2 turns. This is the center point of the clockspring.
Do not allow the rotor to turn from this position.
