SOURCE: how to remove top plate on steering column the

there are a couple of screws that hold the lower part of the cover to the upper part. Remove those and remove the lower cover. There will then be two male torx screws that hold the upper cover in place just behind the steering wheel (look up under the column and you should see them on either side of the column). Once those two are removed the upper cover will come off.

REMOVAL OF STEERING WHEEL ON PAJERO 1999 HOW IS IT DONE


IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS ABOUT THIS, HAVE IT DONE BY A GARAGE THAT IS USED TO HANDLING AIRBAGS.
#1. center the steering wheel and remove the ignition key to lock the wheel and column. DO NOT undo it until the steering wheel is replaced. If the column moves the clock spring can be easily broken.
#2: Locate the airbag controller, and disconnect the yellow connector and fit a shorting pin. This is to ensure that the airbag does not explode.
#3. pull of the horn button, which exposes the airbag and (fragile and expensive) clock spring assembly.

#4. Remove the nut on the column. You may need a puller device if hitting the steering wheel does not release it.

My horn quit working and airbag light came on after replacing starter and ignition switch. Help!! I have a 2001 dodge neon


I'm sorry but you may broke the clock spring connection from the column to the steering wheel.First make sure all the wire are connected under the dash after you work on ignition switch.
for clock spring disconnect the battery for 10 min.to discharge the SRS system.
turn the wheels and steering straight.
remove the airbag and store in safe place
remove the steering wheel
remove column cover
disconnect the clock spring and remove
installation in reverse order
the new clock spring have yellow lock tab. after removing the tab DO NOT turn the spring. the wire inside have limit of 2 1/2 turns each way.
good luck

Pontiac transam firebird 1989 is the steering column spring loaded with a tilt towards the drivers door or is this not normal and requires repair


Steering columns are indeed spring loaded. The tilt mechanism contains the spring. If the upper part of your column can be pulled down towards the 7 o'clock position and it then springs back up to level then the pivot pin holes in the housing are probably worn to an oval shape. At this point you have a few options. First, you remove the column and disassemble. Have the pivot pin holes line reamed to round. Then have bushings made to go in the holes. They will need to be made .002-.003" over the size of the holes you reamed up. Then freeze them and press them into the holes. Reassemble the column.
You could also purchase the upper column pieces that have the pivot pins in them. They run about $500-$700 IF you can find them. These parts will eventually wear out also (cheap cast aluminum) Or go all out and buy a whole new column (usually over $1,000) The busing option is going to be the cheapest (especially if you do it yourself) and your bushings will be made of steel and will last forever.

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
