To install:


NOTE
When installing the steering column assembly, be sure the tilt lever is in the lock position and that it has not been released since the column was removed from the vehicle. Do not release the tilt lever until the column has been installed in the vehicle.

  1. Install the steering column, torque the retaining bolts to 80-124 inch lbs.
  2.  
  3. Install or connect the following:
    NOTE
    When installing the clock spring, ensure that the 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.

  4.  
  5. To align the mating marks of the clock spring, turn the clock spring counterclockwise fully. Then turn it back approximately 3 3/4 turns counterclockwise to align the mating marks.
  6.  
  7. Turn the front wheels to the straight ahead position. Then install the clock spring to the column switch.
    NOTE
    If the vehicle is equipped with Active Skid Control (ASC), ensure that the steering wheel sensor-s mating marks are properly aligned. If not, the steering wheel sensor could be damaged.

  8.  
  9. To align the mating marks, if the vehicle is equipped with Active Skid Control (ASC), turn the steering wheel sensor clockwise fully. Then turn it back approximately 2 3/4 turns counterclockwise to align the mating marks. Align the mating marks on the clock spring and the steering wheel sensor, and install the steering wheel sensor to the column switch assembly. Connect the steering wheel sensor connector.
  10.  
  11. Install or connect the following:

    Steering column-to-instrument panel cover and the cover screws
     
    Floor console assembly
     

  12.  
  13. Refill the cooling system.
  14.  
  15. Connect the negative battery cable. On 2005-2006 vehicles, turn the ignition ON and then OFF , and keep it off for at least ten seconds.
    NOTE
    If the vehicle is equipped with Active Skid Control (ASC), the steering wheel sensor must be recalibrated after the steering shaft has been installed. This is necessary because the TCL/ASC-ECU should update the steering neutral point.


    NOTE
    To complete the steering sensor calibration procedure the following tools are needed. MB991958 scan tool, MB991824 VCI, MB991827 MUT III USB cable, MB991910 MUT III Main harness -A-.

  16.  
  17. Connect the scan tool to the data link connector. To prevent damage to the scan tool be sure that the ignition switch is in the LOCK (OFF) position before connecting the scan tool.
  18.  
  19. Park the vehicle on a level surface.
  20.  
  21. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  22.  
  23. Select -interactive diagnosis- from the menu screen.
  24.  
  25. Select -special function- from the menu screen.
  26.  
  27. Select -steering angle sensor- from the menu screen.
  28.  
  29. Select -calibration- from the menu screen.
  30.  
  31. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK (OFF) position.
  32.  
  33. Disconnect the scan tool.
  34.
