The easiest way is to rent an inner axle shaft removal tool. You should be able to from a local parts supplier.

SOURCE: Turn signal,hazard lights switch bad.

Hi fred,

I worked at a salvage yard for a while. During that time I pulled hundreds of airbags. I thought I'd share a few things.

I've provided this as a supplement to erietracks solution, not to replace it. It provides important additional information you need to be aware of when working on or around SIR (Supplemental Individual Restraint) airbag systems. It lists the potential dangers of doing so and the appropriate precautions against accidental premature deployment. Any work done on the steering column should include this.

Precautions for working with and handling airbags: Take these Seriously!!!

  • Alway wear safety glasses.
  • Control the environment - no kids, pets, people horsing around.
  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal. After you are done, make sure no one is inside the vehicle when you reconnect the battery. If your vehicle has an anti-theft system, you'll need to get your activation codes to reset your sound system.
  • Do not use solvents to clean your airbags. They may ignite if accidentally deployed. Use only a damp cloth.
  • Airbags are sensitive to heat in excess of 190 degrees F. Store them accordingly.
  • Airbags are sensitive to impact - handle them carefully
  • Airbags are sensitive to static electricity - ground yourself, Spray the seat and rug with fabric softener (anti-static - ever heard the term 'static cling')
  • Wires for the SIR are bright yellow, the connectors are labeled.
  • In addition to forward mounted sensors, there are also three sensors in the dash.
  • Do not use voltage testers or VOM's on SIR wiring.
  • Do not haphazardly disconnect airbag components
  • Be safe
  • Be aware

Disable the system:
  • Turn the wheel to the straight ahead position
  • Lock the ignition and remove the key
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable. Be advised, this alone will not render the system safe. The diagnostic module (DERM) can retain a charge
  • Remove the airbag fuse (refer to fuse block cover for location)
  • At the bottom of the steering column locate the Airbag connector. (Yellow wire, yellow conduit)
  • You may need to remove the sound insulator panel beneath the instruments to access it
  • Disconnect the plug
The system is now disabled. That does not mean you can let your guard down. It means that you can now continue working around the system with a higher degree of safety. Continue to observe all safety precautions. Airbags should be handled with caution at all times.

Be safe
Mike

Don't remove the lock cylinder! just break out the small plastic insert inside the upper panel where it slides over the lock cylinder and once its together you will be happy with the ease of installation and the ignition where the key goes in covers up the whole where that little bit of plastic once was

How to remove clock spring on mercedes c 240. Steering wheel has been removed and 3 mounting screws on the clock spring itself. It wont come out of the column. Please help been stuck for hours.


There is one screw that you need to remove from the bottom side of the column. The screw is a torx. Loosen the screw several turns until it feels loose. It will not come all the way out since it is held by the cover on the column. Then pull the whole steering control module off complete with all the levers still attached. Once removed flip over to access the screws that hold the clock spring in place.

I need a diagram for the steering column. I replace it with a used one and now my airbags light is on. I have no cruise control or horn. CAn you help me.


The clock spring in the new one you installed is most likely the problem. It is the part behind the steering wheel that the airbag, horn, and cruise controls plug into. It is very common on Chrysler minivans. Unfortunately it sounds like you inherited the problem with the used unit.

They are not that hard to replace. You will need a steering wheel puller. Sometimes you can rent them from your local auto parts store.

Disconnect the battery and wait about 20 minutes.

Remove the air bag from the steering wheel.

Remove the center nut that holds the steering wheel to the shaft.

Unplug the horn and cruise connectors from the clock spring.

Use the steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel.

Unplug the back connector to the clock spring.

Remove the snap ring that holds the clock spring to the shaft.

Remove the clock spring.

Since the one on the old column worked you can reuse that one if you choose. I would pull the one on the new column first so you know what to expect when you remove the old one from the old column.

This is what the part looks like

Horn not working due to clock spring


The part is still available from GM. It is part # 94857236.

You must be careful when replacing the clock spring as it controls the SRS system.
You will need to remove the steering wheel airbag and and the steering wheel itself.

Important: Perform this procedure in order to prevent deployment of the air bags from the reserve energy supply power.

  1. Remove the CIG and IGN Fuses from the junction block (1), which is located near the base of the steering column.
  2. Remove the lower steering column trim cover.
  3. Turn the steering wheel so that the vehicle's wheels are pointing straight ahead.
  4. Remove the key from the ignition switch
  5. Release the inflatable restraint steering wheel module coil connector locking mechanism.
  6. Disconnect the inflatable restraint steering wheel module coil connector C3
  7. Remove the Instrument Panel (IP) compartment (2)
  8. Release then unlock the IP module connector (1).
  9. Disconnect the IP module pigtail.
  10. Release and unlock the driver and passenger seat module connectors.
  11. Disconnect the driver and passenger seat modules.42de416.gif0276398.gif6983629.gife094e58.gif

Check the clock spring in the steering column (contact assembly between column and steering wheel, wheel removal required) Ford clock springs are known to fail.

Hope this helps.
