Clockspring Centering Procedure
Ensure that the clock spring-s mating marks are properly aligned. If not, the steering wheel may not rotate completely during a turn, or the flat cable in the clock spring could be damaged, This would prevent normal SRS operation and possibly cause serious injury to the driver.
Align the mating marks of the clock spring.

Turn the clock spring clockwise fully. Then turn it back approximately 3-3/4 turns counterclockwise to align the mating marks.
Turn the front wheels to the straight-ahead position. Then install the clock spring to the column switch.
