Thanks for writing to

You will need to pull the cover off the steering column by removing four Phillip screws under the column and the dash cover under the column by removing 3 9/32 screws. You'll need a 10mm socket to remove the air bag it has 4 nuts that hold it on the back side of the steering wheel next you'll unplug the air bag and horn then remove the 16mm nut holding the steering wheel then use the puller to remove the steering wheel. You'll see 3 screws on a black disk that’s the clock spring. Remove the screws and unplug the wires connectors under the dash. Pull the wires and clock spring up through the top of the column. To install just reverse the process.

Remember to disconnect the battery and wait at least 30 minutes to an hour or more. You see, the air bag circuit has backup power in the form of charged capacitors; it takes about 20 minutes to discharge once battery is disconnected. If you don't take this step before clock spring replacement there is a chance of air bag deploying while you are removing it from steering wheel.
Thank you for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

How to change clockspring on 2006 freestar

Changing a clockspring is not for the novice repairman. You will need to disable the airbag system, remove the steering wheel airbag, make sure the wheels are straight and remove the steering wheel. Then you will need to use a clockspring compressor and remove the retaining ring and un-plug the electrical connectors. Then plug in the new clockspring and install the clock spring and retainer, then remove the alignment lock from the new clockspring after it is installed. Then finish installing the steering wheel, air bag, and re-arm the system.

The power steering runs off the fan belts so it has a pulley usely on the upper right side as you face the vehicle it depends on if you have ac or not but it hoses comeing up to it from the steering box thats at the end of the steering coloum that attaches to the steering wheel follow the coloum to the box then follow the hoses to the steering pump there will be a removable cap on it with a small dip stick that will say cold full and hot full on it put the fluid in there fill to level depending if its hot or cold And all ford power steering pumps tend to leak so don,t be alarmed if you have to add some from time to time see if you can get some fluid that has something called seal swell in it that will help to slow any leaks

In my yukon i have an airbag light on, i got the code read and it says drivers side #26 inhindator circut, any ideas? also my abs light goes on after i drive about 100 ft, i was thinking wheel speed sensor

we can guess or a shop can tell you for sure. It may be a wheel sensor.

If your a smoker the ashes destroy the contacts on the clockspring on the steering coloum. also these wear out in time normally.

I have a 2005 ford e150 van. The airbag light is on and the horn does not work. How can I fix this?

i would highly recommend taking it to someone who is capable of replacing the clock spring.............if you do not follow the steps properly you will blow the airbag in your face..........until the clock spring is replaced your airbag, horn and more than likely your accessory features on your steering wheel will cease to function......

once again this is a dangerous task for someone who has no experience dealing with airbag systems.........

Bronco uses a RELAY switch under the hood. Is that what you replaced?

Swap it with the A/C RELAY switch (they are the same) to check it.
