The only way to remove a clock spring assembly is to remove the steering wheel. Of course, if your vehicle has an airbag system (SRS) you'll need to unscrew it from the back and disconnect that first. If you don't have a steering wheel puller, you're going to need one, as this will make the job a LOT easier! You'll be able to borrow one from a "Loan a Tool" program such as at Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts. Next, make a "timing mark" on the shaft and the inside of the steering wheel so that it's assembled and centered the same as when you removed it. Start with the steering wheel in the centered position when you make your timing mark for better ease of the operation. Once the steering wheel is removed, disconnection and replacement of the clock spring assembly is pretty self-explanatory. Just look for the attaching screws, remove them, and disconnect it from the harness. Use the new clock spring assembly as a good reference point.

I hope this helps! :)

Horn doesnt work after re-pack of airbag


The horn, cruse control and air bag each get power from the clock spring and each have a wire plugged no to it. The horn wire is probably not connected. When the clock spring breaks the horn and cruse control stop working and the air bag light stays on.

97 f150 ford horn not working


the most common cause is the steering wheel rotating contact, it is called the clock-spring contact, this allows the wheel to turn and still have contact with cruise (if eqiped) horn and airbag, all have separate wires on a coiled printed circuit that looks like a clock-spring.
