To install:


CAUTION
Be sure that the clock spring-s mating marks are aligned properly. If the marks are not properly aligned, the steering wheel might not rotate completely during a turn, or the flat cable in the clock spring could be damaged. This would prevent normal SRS operation and potentially cause serious injury to the driver.

  1. Align the mating marks of the clock spring, as follows:
    1. Turn the clock spring fully clockwise. Then turn it back about 3 3 / 4 turns counterclockwise to align the mating marks.
    2.  
    3. Turn the front wheels to the straight-ahead position. Then install the clock spring to the column switch.
      WARNING
      Make sure that the steering wheel sensor-s mating marks are properly aligned. If the marks are not properly aligned, the steering wheel sensor could be damaged.
